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.
I just checked and I can make FP+ selections through to when my AP expires in mid October.

We are staying at POR on 9/18 for one night, leaving for the Disney Cruise on 9/19 and returning for a stay at the Poly 9/22-9/25. I was able to make FP+ selections earlier this week, but had not been able to customize Magic Bands - until today. I read a tip to redo the online check-in, so I did that today and now have the option to customize Magic Bands for POR and Poly!!!

she said you would be able to make the FP+ reservations but the band will not work if you are not checked in at a test resort. I didnt ask about AP MB. i booked an extra night any way and hope they change that parameter of the test. if not we got an expensive souvenir!

My parents aren't going until September 19 and after we did their online check in their magic bands popped up and said they had 4 days to customize. So if I was you as soon as you hit around 35 days I would do it!

I am at 21 days and mine just popped up last night and are ordered and in the process of shipping.

I'm sooooo excited and this is the only place to share because it's a surprise trip for the kids.

Just customized MBs for 9/12-9/15 POR stay thanks to info about online check-in. FP+ picks done but still trying to get BOG FP+.

I couldn't have gotten this crazy trip together with all the perks without DIS board friends. You guys are awesome.

- If you do the "FastPicks" for MK it sometimes gives a bonus FP so you have 4 and you can modify them to things and times you want after confirmation.

You can also pik three. Then when you go in to edit the bonus pass will pop up. I'm sure your kids will be very surprised and excited!!

I have been able to do FP+ times for two days now, but didn't have a MB option (checking in at BCV 9/12) until I followed the pointers to re-check in online. Changed my check in/check out times and saved it and my MB customization option popped up.

We are doing a series of split stays but it looks like the Contemporary is on the list of approved resorts for the September stay, so we will be able to use the MB when we come back for a night stay at BLT before the Fantasy. Sad though because after the Fantasy we are at BWV and I didn't see them on the list....

I honestly have no idea... I don't think theres a rhyme or reason for any of it! I just follow this thread and saw someone said make a change to online and I did and then I could do Magic Bands... I did set all the Fast Pass + stuff up yesterday thought.

Good Luck

Hooray!

I'm at 29 days. Yesterday I went on and saw the FP+ selections. Today after reading this board, I did the online check in, logged out, then back in and was able to order our bands. We are staying at Coronado Springs. I am so excited. It looks like they are rolling these out everywhere.

Worked like a charm. Thanks. We are banded up!
