Linking a shades of green res #

Tue, 2018-04-03 13:48
Just wanted to post a little advice, if you are trying to link your Shades of Green reservation # you get your best results when you do it on the actual My Disney Experience website (not the app.) Also it takes about 24 hours so booking the hotel on your 180 day mark and then expecting to book all your ADRS is a no go. (Don't ask me how I know this.)

That being said I was fairly pleased with ADR availability for end of Sept including Ohana.

Walt Disney Imagineering Launches "Project H" Near Disney's Hollywood Studios

Tue, 2018-04-03 01:17
Walt Disney Imagineering has recently filed two permits with the South Florida Water Management District for "Project H" near Disney's Hollywood Studios.

The first permit (Application #:180402-434) is an exploratory permit to perform a geotechnical boring in the Project H site.

The second permit (Permit#:48-00714-P) is to clear the 9.5 Acre Project H site (shown in Blue).

The details and diagrams for the two permits are summarized below:

Quote: Originally Posted by Application #: 180402-434 Received Date: 02-Apr-2018
Application Status: Under Review
Issuing Office: ORL/SFWMD
Permit Type: Environmental Resource (New General Permit)
Project Name: Project H Wetland Borings
Project Acres: 0.02
Landuse(s): Commercial And Services
Location: Orange S31/T24/R28


Quote: Originally Posted by Application #: 180402-11/Permit#: 48-00714-P Received Date: 02-Apr-2018
Issuing Office: ORL/SFWMD
Application Status: Initial Review
Permit Type: Environmental Resource (Compliance Minor Mod)
Project Name: Project H - Clearing/ Stockpile
Project Acres: 9.5
Landuse(s): Commercial And Services
Location: Orange S36/T24/R28


Based on the proximity of the 9.5 acre project site just south of the future Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land, it is anticipated that "Project H" is the yet-to-be-named Star Wars Hotel. Attached Images

New Digital Room Key Coming for Bluetooth Enabled Devices at Walt Disney World

Tue, 2018-04-03 00:53
Walt Disney World has announced a new "Digital Room Key" feature to roll out for Bluetooth Enabled Devices using the MyDisneyExpereince App:

Quote: Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts
... Coming soon to Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, a new feature in the My Disney Experience app will allow guests to quickly unlock their hotel room using a digital key on their mobile devices, providing them with another seamless room entry option that brings added ease and flexibility to their experience.

Guests can also use their digital key to unlock the hotel entrance gate and common area doors requiring a key, which may include pools, fitness centers, elevators and club level lounges. Arriving travel parties that have checked in online may even use their digital key to bypass the need to visit the front desk, giving them the opportunity to go directly to their room when it is ready and start their vacation even faster.

The feature represents the latest evolution of keyless room entry, which we began offering with the MagicBand, the unique all-in-one device that effortlessly connects the vacation choices guests make in My Disney Experience. Guests may use either or both options to enter their room during their stay.

So how does it work? To use their digital key, guests can opt in and activate the feature on their check-in day through a brief set up process in the app. To enter their room, guests tap the “Unlock Door” button and then simply hold their phone against the door lock.

... Bluetooth®-enabled mobile devices with the latest version of the My Disney Experience app are required to take advantage of a digital key for room entry. And don’t forget to wear your MagicBand for all other uses including park entry, FastPass+ redemption, room charges and more.

The new feature is expected to be rolled-out in phases to other Walt Disney World resort hotels, much like the MagicBand Access Points were initially.
