I am doing something wrong? We check in October 5 and l have done online check in, but can't do Fast pass+ or anything with Magic Bands. Just want to make sure I'm not missing something simple.

Ok just got an emial from Disney Tech Support. Magic Bands are active for guest that have tickets and that are staying at POR. But according to them you have to wait for a letter saying that you are invited to Fast pass +

So I guess Magic Bands are a must for POR but Fast Pass + Those going after Sept 28 have to wait to be invited is what I understand .

We will see what happens I am 43 days out

Technology is awesome!

I also was having trouble with the Magic Band customization. Oddly enough, I redid my online check-in before even coming to the DIS Boards today, so I was able to complete the customization.

Then, I got on here and read about the BOG FastPass+ reservation. I was having trouble getting it to work, but was able to once I read the post about using the number on your Magic Band page. Once you have that number (it starts with a 4), you have 30 minutes to make selections on food and drinks for your party. Although, it appears like you might have the ability to go back later and change that (can anybody verify that??).

So, my arrival is in 22 days (September 7th), and I am absolutely stoked to be a part of the testing while on our vacation. My family and I (DW, DD4, and my parents) are so looking forward to this magical time.

I wanted to say thanks again to Andre, venomhatch, and all of the others who put so much time into helping people like me. Maybe someday we'll all run into each other.
I don't understand the BOG reservation for lunch. I was able to customize the magic band and make fastpass+ reservations to attractions till sept 30th. But how can I reserve for lunch at BOG???? Nothing showed when I customize the magic bands. I have my reservationnumber. Be on POR from sept 26 till oct 9.
I didn't see how and where. I tried the link, but get no available fastpass tickets.

Not really concerned yet, just wondering.

Pretty excited that it looks like we get Magic Bands at some point
Got ours 33 days out. I don't think there's a real "time". Supposedly cms will tell you to call if you're 14 days out and don't have it!

Thank You for your help.
Hi, I'm looking at my ipad app - if you go to "My Disney Experience," then "My Reservations," it shows up underneath the reservation confirmation number in the upper right. It says "Check In Online."

You need to go to beourguestlunch.disney.go.com and log in with your MDX account. From there, it will ask for your reservation number. This is the number beginning with a "4" that you find on the Magic Bands page of MDX. I certainly hope this helps as I want everybody to be able to experience this. I am exceptionally excited myself for this.

I had missed the chance to make ADRs there, so this is great.

Online Check In

We haven't made any sort of room request yet bc we just switched from POFQ yesterday. I didn't want to do online check in because we typically arrive around 6am, go check in, ask them if we can wait for a room in whatever section we want, get our tickets and wait for our room. We have had much better luck getting rooms in the sections we want vs doing online check in. I guess if I have to I have to but can we NOT do online check in and still get Magic Bands?

I hope we will be able to get them without doing online check-in... I was not planning to check-in online either.

another question...because this thread is massive...we will be 3 adults, 1 child in a crib. We have paid for a Garden view. I would like to be close to the parking lot, close to the main building for drinks and in the mansions. Which building and room section would you suggest? I am so spoiled by the size of POFQ that I'm not sure what to request.

I had one in Magnolia Terrace in June and we were near all of those, plus the quiet pool.

Thank You

I went to the website not the MDE app and found the online checkin and ordered our Magic bands customized them (only color choices I saw) online. Then got the Be Our Guest lunch day and time set. Busy day.
