Yes, this is how I do it.

Logged on this morning and lo and behold - was able to customize my MagicPants AND make Fastpass selections!!!! Our day has arrived

A few queries/observations:
1.While I was able to get an FP for Fantasmic reserved seating, nothing popped up for Main Street Lectrical Parade or Illuminations. Assuming these experiences will pop up later in October?

2.We're doing a split stay AKL-Yacht. I was asked to customize two sets of Magic Bands for my family. Is this normal? Thought we'd be able to re-use the same set at both resorts...

3.My infant son also has a band. Is there a different model for very small children?

Should I be worried that the Disney app on my phone is only listing everything as FP+ for one. It's correctly listed for four on the website.

We have a 1 night RO reservation the night before we check into a WH Townhouse. Will it limit me to only picking FP+ for that day (or presumably the next) or will I be able to pick FP+ for any days within a window up to the 5 days that I have tickets for?

My plan is to pick FP+ for the days that we would like to sleep in and try to get attractions such as TSMM at HS and Soarin at Epcot verses the MK days that I know we are going to make RD.
You should be able to select FP+s for the number of days on your park tickets, regardless of how many nights you are staying on property.

MagicPants! I want some!

A few queries/observations:
1.While I was able to get an FP for Fantasmic reserved seating, nothing popped up for Main Street Lectrical Parade or Illuminations. Assuming these experiences will pop up later in October?

Hopefully, but no one really knows yet.


2.We're doing a split stay AKL-Yacht. I was asked to customize two sets of Magic Bands for my family. Is this normal? Thought we'd be able to re-use the same set at both resorts...

You will be able to use both sets for your entire trip. Eventually they will send out one band per person but during testing it is one band per person per reservation. Just order two different colors and enjoy!


3.My infant son also has a band. Is there a different model for very small children?

No, they are the same bands. They do, however, adjust for small children/adults with small wrists. When you get your bands you will see that they are two-tone. There is the color you selected and then a dark gray/black outer ring. That ring pulls off, leaving just the colored part, to make a smaller band. Google Magic Bands Images and you will see what I mean.

If you select the Will Call option you will get a Will Call number. You can enter this into MDE and it will know how many tickets you purchased. You then assign each one to a member of your group.

If you opt for shipped tickets I believe you have to wait until they arrive.

Hi everyone! DH and I are checking into AKL Villas using our DVC points on November 30th. We have annual passes which have been linked to MDE. DVC ressie and ME ressie have all been linked to MDE as well.

So I really just want to verify with you guys that I won't be able to customize Magic Bands or make Fast Pass+ selections until 60 days out. FYI...we are at 66 days as of today.

Thanks everyone! We are so excited to use this new system!!!

Trying to help a.coworker out. She has ressies at BC arrives 11/7. She is going with 2 other families and so they have 3 separate reservations. One of her friends "invited" her to join MDE. She logs in and can see her reservation, but anyone know where she goes to "accept" the invite? Directions said to go to notifications but I don't see that anywhere.

MagicPants - OMG, I was so excited, did not re-read myself. Of course, everyone knows MagicPants will only be part of the second wave of MyDisneyExperience.

We check in 11/28. Main page says customize your mb but when I click it takes me to my ticket page and ot shows my AP RFID card. No mb to customize

Is this because it is ap?

Any other nov ap holders get to customize their mb yet?

11/30 check-in, and in the same boat as you! What resort are you in? Wonder if that matters?
