ok, i'm a little lost. i hit the 60 day mark and i cant do anything different today than yesterday. I though i could do an early check and also thought having the AP i could do the FP+. Guess i'll just keep checking every twenty minutes to see if anything changes.

I'll join the club of November waiters too. We check in November 17, so our 60 day mark will be coming soon. We have AP's, but had to also buy 2 day tickets to get free dining. I talked to the IT people and they said everything should work out that we can get FP+ if we are eligible. We are staying at POR.

Guests with a November check in cannot customize Magic Bands or select FP+ times right now. They are busy adding in October arrivals and resorts. They will get to us. We just have to be patient and keep checking!

Ok I hope I don't sound like an idiot but I want to do this right.
Even though I have the option to complete the online check in for our November trip I should not complete the online check in until after I have completed the FP+ process? Is that correct?

After all this waiting I don't want to mess this up

You can go ahead and do on line check in if you want to. The issue is that some people were unable to see the link to customize bands because they had already done on line check in. They had to go back in and re-submit it before the link for customization went live for them.

If you frequent these boards there will be lots of people posting when November check-ins go live. It's up to you which way you want to go with on line check in.

That's what we are doing for our nov 8-18 trip. I'm not doing online checking until the day we get the FP . The cm today Said watch over the next 3 weeks so I'm just going to check every few hours like I have been lol

I'm waiting to do online check in because of this.
I don't doubt fast pass- will still be available. But technically, couldn't they turn back on the part that required your KTTW to be used that day to be able to pull a FP? Or somehow not put tickets on the KTTW card? I really hope they don't, but if all Disney resort guests can get both, I would think FP would be gone even faster during the day or FP lines might not be as fast.

That's great! Congratulations. I will be so glad when the daily waiting/chicking is over (well, maybe not )
Only November 12th opened up for me tonight. 70 days out.

Where are you staying? Have you had FP+ before? I haven't seen any other reports of people with stays starting November who have been able to activate it.

I have only seen people who already have MagicBands from an earlier stay at a testing resort in August/September/October who can book FP+ already. I am sure they will continue into November, with maybe testing for AP and offsite guests in November. Or they might go full live Nov.1

Ok now I am worried we won't be able to link our UT tickets to our account. I have been reading posts that tickets purchased through UT are not linking on to MDE and if you can't get them linked then you can't make FP+ choices. I called earlier today and spoke to a wonderful CM, she was helpful with some other MDE issues I was having but had to take our ticket numbers to pass along to the ticket specialist people to resolve our problem. I might have to wait up to a week to hear back. I have read other posters saying they were told this issue won't be resolved until they are on property so they can't make FP+ selections until then! I want to cry

My gut was telling me to forget about saving the money from UT and just buy them from Disney with the possibility of FP+ but I didn't listen. When will I learn to trust my instincts?

We just received our tickets from UT today and I was able to link them with no problem.

Many others had no problems linking their UT tickets. Don't despair!

Some people that bought tickets directly from Disney are seeing the same glitch so don't bee too hard on yourself. Things will work out.

I'm in the same boat and still waiting for the fix. I will call back after a week and I suggest you do the same.
