...does that mean all resorts participating in full scale/full volume test or getting of old FP system. Big difference. Here is hoping for the former. Can't imaging they'd get rid of old FP- as a back up before they've tested it for a few weeks at least with all guests participating. Too much could go wrong at full capacity.

I can't honestly answer that. I just know I was told when I inquired about MB and FP+ to a CM helping me with all my bookings, she said they are hoping to have both in full swing by November.

I am 68 days from our next Disney adventure. We are checking in at the PCR for nine nights, starting on Nov 4th. I don't have my tickets yet from Undercover Tourist but once I receive them, I will manually link them.


I have setup our MDE, added family, linked our hotel reservations... So far, my MDE contains links for Manage MagicBands and Make Fastpass+ selections but I don't think it allows me to customize and order them.

Anything else I'm missing that I should do??

Who else is going in November and hoping to have MagicBands?
We are checking in Nov. 2 as of right now, but I am thinking about adding on a night or two at AoA before that so that we can go to MNSSHP. I guess I have decided to get them so that I can reserve a BOG lunch and a few rides that we have never rode due to long lines, plus my kids will go wild over the bands especially if we get them at home before our trip. I really hate being limited on FP though As far as I can tell, we don't have the ability to order MB, but we are also at Music which may not be part of the test

By the way, can you check in more than 10 days early now?

I am like you only 67 days out we arrive Nov 3 and I plan on buying our tix from UT and linking them. I been holding off buying them so they would run out of the paper tix.

Do we have to do online checkin to customize the MagicBands? I never do it plus we are staying CL for the first time and I'd rather wait and check in when we arrive

Interesting. If you check in at 60 days (I believe our mark is coming up), can you still make changes until 45 days? I'm still uncertain on whether I want to just add a day or two on to our package or do a few days room only at AoA. Was hoping to have a little more time to figure it out, but still want to do online check in ASAP to see if MB pops up. Another factor is, if AoA gets MB for Nov and Music does not, then I'd certain do the room only option. Hmmm...

But we should be able to link the paper tickets to MDE and the MagicBand right?

Just as a side mention, I was asked to do a survey in the middle of my MDE browsing session and one of the questions was, have you received an invite to participate in the MagicBands and I answered no. Hoping this will prompt n invite

I'm oct 26 - nov 3, so not checking in Nov but our stay extends into it. Today was our 60 days out and I was able to customize magic bands and make FP+ selections. Not sure if that helps or not.

I did not do online checkin but was able to customize my bands.
