When I log into the web site it will allow me to book it. I only have my AP right now though and am waiting for my friends to come in the mail from UTC before I confirm anything though

I'm also hoping to get Wishes for a Saturday and its not available as a FP+ for me either. I was able to book IllumiNations for a Sunday night, though.

Ok so I've read the majority of this but I'm still pretty confused and I'm hoping someone could help me out. We're staying at POR Oct 6-11. I just set up an account on the Disney Experience App. We haven't done online check in yet. So my questions are:

1. Where will see if we are part of the test group? Is it only on the app or will we get an email too? Because the app also confuses me.

2. Will we only know if we get fastpass + until we check in online?

3. When is the latest we would find out if we got fastpass +?

1. Login to my disney experience. On the right hand side you should see an option to "customize magic bands"

2. If you link your tickets to my disney experience you should be able to prebook fp+ rides today for your trip

3. I believe they send the email at 17 or 18 days (someone correct me if I'm wrong!). However, no one in this thread has been "invited" (to my knowledge) and the good majority of us have customized our magic bands and chosen fp+.

I was able to log in and customize my MB and book FP+ at 60 days out... Today I got an email from my travel agent telling me that I was chosen to participate in the MB test (57 days out). Keeping my fingers crossed that BOG FP+ open for October!

Ok so I've read most of the stuff on here and I'm very confused with all of this. We're staying in POR Oct 6-11. We have not done online check in yet. I downloaded the Disney Experience app but when I was trying to link it with our reservations it wasn't wanting to work so I deleted the app and will try again later. My questions are:

1. Will we for sure get an email if we are selected to do fastpass + or will it be on the app?

2. When is the latest you will find out if you've been selected?

So we were able to customize our bands on day 64. Today was day 60 and we were then able to make FP+ selection for our trip Oct 26-Nov 2nd at POR. Only paid deposit so far on package. No letter or email to date. We already had our MDE setup with reservation/tickets linked.

Ok me again! Haha. So I got the app working this time and I was able to customize magic bands and made fastpass + reservations for tower of terror, midway mania and rock n roller coaster for one of the days. Does this mean we actually have it!?!? I know people were saying they were able to customize bands & get on the fastpass + page but I don't know if they ever got as far as I did.

Yep! Everyone staying at POR is included in the testing. Have fun, and to the Disboards!

Just wondering if anyone else has a situation similar to ours. We are doing a split stay at the end of October (first BLT, then AKL Jambo). I just added the AKL stay to MDE today and noticed that I can now access the "customize magic bands" page, which had previously been grayed out when only the BLT reservation was registered. It appears that the AKL part of our vacation is in magic band territory but the first part, at BLT, is not.

Because of that, I'm a little afraid to add park tickets to our MDE account. Not sure if that will mess things up beyond repair, and not sure that I could even use FP+ for the BLT portion of our stay. It would be great to try out the FP+ reservation system for the duration of our trip but it seems a little risky.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Where in MDE is the greyed out "customize magic bands"? I know ASMU isn't one of the reported test resorts but I saw a post from someone staying there that she could do it, and I can't even figure out where the option would be if I had it!
