I'm so sad, we have a room only reservation, and our travel agent says we won't get our theme park tickets until 2 weeks before we leave, so I doubt I'll be allowed to select magic bands or fast passes ahead of time..

We have a "room only" as well. I customized our MagicBands yesterday. You might want to check your MDE account to see if you can customize yours.

Ours are room only as well. We just have AP vouchers that we will redeem down there for our FTW Planning Session. It kind of sucks not being able to do the Fast Pass+ this time around, but for free AP's...I'll gladly wait a few months for the next trip!

apparently in many instances you CAN add the AP vouchers to your MDE account instead of actual tickets and it will allow you to have FP+

not sure if it's all AP vouchers or not.

If they have a barcode then try to scan them with the smartphone app- that seems to be the best way to get tickets into the system.

We are arriving 11/1/13 at POFQ and I was able to customize my bands on MDE, as well. Woohoo!!! We are renewing our seasonal passes, this weekend, so hopefully it will let us then set up FP+.

We arrive December 2nd, and in one hour it will officially mark 65 days until we leave! I'm hoping I get to try this new system out. I thought I heard that by December they thought every resort would have them. Could have been a rumor though, can't remember where I read that. Anyway, I'll let you guys know if I'm able to customize this weekend!

All resorts except DVC will have magic bands by the end of October. Im staying at all star music until the 2nd of December and I got magic bands. Check out other sites by doing a internet search. That is how I have learned a lot of information.

We got ours to customize yesterday, but the cm at Disney said the poly should have them by than. So excited! Now if only we can get a room at the poly that isn't blocked by construction

I have yet to be able to check in online and I've been trying since our 60 days hit and we're at 42 now. It always shows an error and even the IT at Disney couldn't figure it out
