Port Orleans Riverside

She said she literally just got the list today and when asked if more hotels would come online in September she did not sound hopeful.

So I guess that is that.
Are these only for resort stays or DVC also?

Had a reservation for all stars movies sept 7 to 14.. no fast pass + and no MB so guest what.. I wanted the MB and fast pass + so bad that I just call Disney and change my reservation for pop instead of all star.. I was ready to pay a fee for changing reservation because the trip is only in 23 days.. The guy I spoke too was so great and I was able to change the reservation at no extra cost .. making the happy dance!!!!! I just customize my MB and made my fast pass reservation..

By the way i'M Canadian so tell me that I wont receive it by mail and that the bands will be at the resorts.. 2 pink, one red and one green. He also confirm me that they wil give us a key to the world card also so we will be able to make regular fast pass also.. It'S gonna be a WONDERFUL trip.. I'm a so happy mother right now!!!

I just talked to 2 cm's and they said you will receive an email if you are selected to test the magic bands within the 17 day window.

Magic Bands for Oct

So with the added resorts for Sept. I am wondering what are the chances of either a full roll out by Oct. or the All Stars being included in the testing? I would love to try MB out and we are staying at AsMu Oct 19th-25th

Have you checked in online? In the other tread about sept bands people are saying if you modify your online check in. And resave it the bands come right up. Worth a shot. Just change your arrival time. Can always be changed back.

i just spoke to a MDE cast member who is helping with the testing and said that the MB/FP+ only work until midnight of the check out day of the resorts included in the test. she said that you are even able to add FP+ for all days but they will not work I was thinking of adding an extra day at one of the test resorts too. I asked specifically about if they can be linked to the other reservation and she said that is not within the parameters at this time but might change.

Wow, this is totally contrary to what I have been told. I can even make FP+ selections for days after we check out. Maybe because I have an AP?
