Day 3 started with a morning and afternoon outside the parks, then Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party that night!
We started the morning with two adults ending up standing outside their room door with no Magic Bands. I knew the Club desk could make a new room key, so one of us ran up to get that. Once we tried to use the new room key card, we got a red light.
Long story short, if the deadbolt is thrown inside the door, the electronic lock outside cannot open the door. Lucky for us, our 2 year hold could reach the deadbolt easier than he could reach the handle and probably threw it very early on in the process of us being locked out of the room. Eventually someone brought the key for the deadbolt, but it took several people attempting the lock before a manager finally had the magic touch to turn the lock. If you ever feel down, just think about that one time we locked our kid inside our room for 45 minutes.
By the time this saga was solved, it was nearing time for our lunch reservation in Disney Springs. We parked at the new Lime Garage connected to Town Center, which was slick and easy compared to the old days of prowling surface lots for empty spots.
