Yep! And you get 2 days free parking. So that is $40 back. And if i go and pick up the magic bands that is another $50 back. So disney will have given me a $30 discount and access to the 60 day fp window. Though i might use that personal shopper option and get the bands delivered to us on the evening we arrive. Even paying the personal shopper it is still cheaper to do this.

How did you find a personal shopper? Sounds like it might be useful for the magic bands and other items?

Might go down that route as we will have a 4 and 5 yr old with us and i just want to keep the hassle and stress to a minimum.

Also just noticed it is emh at ak on our first day. When we will have access... might end up with FOP being our first ride...
I'm using Beth at Fairytale Personal Shopper, after seeing her recommended on here

Oooo now look what you've got me thinking!

So there are 8 of us going, can I just book a campsite for 2 and still get all FP's for the whole party?

2 or 8- the cost of the pitch is the same. All 8 of you can get magic bands although you can only book at 60 days for check in and check out day and then the days open up 1 at time so you are still way ahead of those at 30 days. Onsite people can book all their fast passes at 60 days.

And use that personal shopper like Eccle has suggested and for $15 the mb will be waiting at your accomodation. You still need to check in online. But then you wont even have to go to the campsite.

Just wondering if i can now change my campsite booking to amend the address and get the mb delivered like that as i didnt think of that at the point of booking it.

Edit: just found it is easy to do while customising the magic bands. Awesome. Thanks all again for your help!

So for $90, I book a campsite pitch for 8 people, don't use it, and they give free magic bands too? Where do you get the bands from if you never go to the site?

Sorry If I'm not getting this... blonde moment... or disbelief.

You can either go to the site and pick up the magic bands or as others have suggested use a personal shopper who will deliver the bands to you.

You need to book on the US Disney site. If you go to the top of the page and drop down from UK English to America English you can access it. If you change your mind, you can cancel with no fee.
