Thanks - I just figured that out. I checked in, and was able to customize the bands.

So my ressie isn't until 10/10, so if I check in now, do you think that I will still be able to customize the MBs? And then at that point would I get whatever number I need to try and get a lunch ressie at BOG?? TIA!

I have to get off the DIS site. I have been on it everyday for the last 3 months or so.

I am happy for those who are able to make their fastpass+ selections and choose their magic bands. But I can't help feeling upset by missing the date by 1 day. I am getting too depressed, feeling that I have been left out. Hopefully I get over this funk soon and am able to talk to everyone here

Thank you Andre and venomhatch for all your help and expertise. You guys are amazing

You are going to be at Disney World staying at an amazing resort. Your KTTW card will do verything the magic band would do, so the only thing you might miss out on is scheduling fast passes in advance. You will still be able to get fast passes using your KTTW card, so you really aren't missing much.

For what it's worth, I modified my online check-in for my RO Sept. 28 reservation and then was able to customize Magic Bands. We are doing a split stay with RO on Sept. 28 and a package with FD beginning on Sept. 29. There is still no FP+ availability any of our days. (Sept. 28 will not be a park day for us.) Still wondering when that might be available.

No one knows at this point, but I presume that it will be "enabled" soon.

I'm in the same boat. Hang in there. It'll happen.

Hello All,

We have setup our fastpass+ and magicbands and my husband and I were wondering if since the magicbands get mailed to us and they are our park tickets can we just go from the airport to Hollywood studios and use it without first going to the resort?

Thanks for all the great information!!

Tina

Friends,

Sorry if I ask a previous answered question.
We check in to POR on 9-10. I updated our My Magic Experience site and see our reservations. But I can't see where to order customized bands.
I called and a cast member said I will get an email if we are in the magic band test. I'm confused!!!
I can even select FP + on the magic experience site. But no customizing bands.

Are we not in the magic band test? What am I doing wrong if I should be able to order them? Help : ). Thanks

As far as I've read, you need to do online check in first, did you do that? Then sign out and sign back in. Hope that helps.

But there daughter shows up on my ticket list. Do I need to create hers?

Told you I was confused. Sorry. But any help would be great!!
This... Having the exact same issue with a 10/12 arrival date.

This reduces my FD savings, but my DD is going to be thrilled! This will be our first visit to POR, so I am excited, too.

Question: Where should I expect to be with a pool view? I'd really like to be as close to the main building and main pool as possible, but not sure where a pool view booking category will have me.
O was able to do this last week!!! We switched from CBR to POR in a pool view RR. I only checked for the heck of it, but when I saw it available I was ecstatic!! I immediately called and booked that room!! We have FD as well and I only had to pay 187.00 extra to move to POR RR. So excited!!!

Random Question. What the normal delivery time for "Mickey Mail". We were paid in full in earlyJuly and we check in to POR Sept 19th so we are just out side 30 days. Just wondering as it seems most people get it like 40+ days.

Not really concerned yet, just wondering.

Pretty excited that it looks like we get Magic Bands at some point

I don't see on the MME app how to do online check in. I am so lame. : )

I prefer checking in at the resort. But to get customized bands I will but don't see how on the MME app.?

Thank You for your help.

Thanks! I feel like its coming - so I'm not worried... But, I hope it happens soon so I can stop checking MDE and the DIS every 15 minutes! It's a compulsion!
