    I am just a few days away from being able to make my fastpass plus selections.

    Finally a date has been announced! I am surprised, though, because based on the amount of work going on (there is an aerial view of Diagon Alley on YouTube that showed the progress), I would have thought the land would open, not soft open, between June 27th-July 1.

    Re: I'm Going to Disney World in August - and I'm so excited!!!!

    I made my fastpass plus selections today. It was painless. I bit the bullet, and selected an Anna and Elsa Meet and Greet, but it is the very last day of my vacation, and it is before I change hotels from Pop Century to Bonnet Creek.

    My plan for the 5th day in the park, is to spend it at Magic Kingdom. I'd like to get up, check out of Pop Century, leave my bags with Bell Services, spend the day at MK, and return to Pop, and from there get a Cab to nearby Bonnet Creek, where I spend two days just relaxing before I fly home to Chicago.

    It says I have to wait until Sept to make my fastpass selections. Were most of the times you wanted for rides available? Also I forgot if you mentioned it or not but are you planning on eating at Be Our Guest for lunch? I was wondering how the fastpass + works for that. Thanks.

    I have decided to pass on eating at Be Our Guest. I believe there is a special link that you need in order to make the fastpass lunch selection. I didn't pay much attention when my travel agent told me about it, because I had decided early on, to bypass that experience.

    Mostly, I want to ride the new coaster in Magic Kingdom, and I have a few favorites in each park. When I made my 3 selections, they wanted to make them later than I wanted. However, once you agree to one of their 4 pre-selected options, you can change the times on each of your selections. It was pretty easy. I moved everything up in time. It wasn't too bad, and I only had 3 ADR's. One of those, I cancelled in favor of the fastpass, and I will make other lunch arrangements.

    The selection process seems to work well enough, but will I like it when the days arrive? Not sure about that. It does seem like everything in Magic Kingdom has a fastpass, and there are tons of meet and greets.

    I understand that when I actually use my 3 fastpasses, I can make more. That part should be interesting when the day comes to try that selection process for the first time. It's only me in my party.

    Re: I'm Going to Disney World in August - and I'm so excited!!!!

    I found an ADR for Afternoon Tea at the Grand Floridian on my first full day in the parks. I love going there. It will be a nice treat for me on my very first day.

    I have already changed my thought on my 2nd day. That is the day that I want to see Fantasmic.. I still want to call that MGM. Not too many rides in that park. Mostly shows, so I have decided to just do another morning of fastpasses in the MK, and then arrive mid afternoon to DHS. If I learn the whole kiosk thing quickly, perhaps I can still get on Star Tours, and Toy Story Mania, which are the two that I want to ride at DHS.

    I can see why people find this stuff crazy. Perhaps the best plan is to just make the selections, and then don't 2nd guess yourself. That's hard.

    My Disney World vacation is just 59 days away.

    Not sure how I feel about The Hub being all torn up, though.

    Not much goes on at MGM/DHS lately, and I miss the Villains Unleashed by just a day.

    Although the price is $67. That is a lot of money.

    That is. I will miss it too. I will be in Florida at that time but not there. My family and I will be visiting in the Tampa area. Our Disney trip isn't until November.

    Today I made an appointment for a haircut at the Harmony Barber Shop. However, I neglected to doublecheck everything, and it overlapped with my character breakfast at Park Fare. So I cancelled the breakfast. I guess I eat on the run that day. There's a lot of great counter serve places that I still haven't tried.
