Not at Ft. Wilderness for us either Not that I expected it, I'm sure the campsites will be the last to get them.

As far as we're concerned, Disney needs to get with it and add the third monorail deluxe, the GF, before we get there the week before Thanksgiving. I mean, really! You've had the CR testing; you're adding the Poly next group, so come on, Disney, and put the GF in the test group. Most importantly, ask US to participate, HUH????

We're staying at POP 12OCT-19OCT and I JUST saw that we got them!!! Super excited!!!

I checked my profile on MDE (Disney only charged roomies card a portion of what was owed!!!?????? No clue on that!) to see if we are still 0 balance and there they were!

I hope everyone gets a chance to try them out....
