I must have missed it, when did people start getting notified that they could test for sept? Watching not so patiently for our oct 4-12 stay. We are at the grand though so I'm afraid we probably won't be included.

Why wouldn't you be included? Are there only certain resorts the testing is occurring in? do you know which ones?

The September test does not include the GF. Only certain resorts. I was just wondering if anyone had a guess of when they might start seeing October test details.

So excited about MB+. This might be interesting since we are resort hopping and have 3 separate reservations and the system has 3 sets of Magic Bands. That's going to be a lot of bands to not mix up. Luckily I'm an organization geek so I can handle it.

If I was spending all that money to stay at GF I would be demanding to be apart of the testing phase!

OK I don't have time to read all the post but i've got 2 ?'s. First can Magicbands be used with dining plan or do you have to have the KTTW also? Secondly, we received our Magicbands today but someone said something somewhere i read about receiving something else in the mail telling what to do with them what are they talking about? Thanks in advance

Shouldn't be too hard to not mix them up. You do get to put names on them and customize them to say: Judy AKL or Judy 01 or whatever else you want to help identify them based on which resort you are staying at. Since I am just at two resorts and have 2 different magic bands I just got two different colors...but that won't work out for everyone especially with larger groups and people who want the same color for every band. The name on the back will be the easiest way to tell them apart I think.

If I was spending all that money to stay at GF they had better not have beta anything going on.

Dining plan will be on the MB. They have hand held devices now they bring to the table to scan your band and that's how you pay for table service. They have the readers at counter service registers.

How do I change the park that I am planning for FP+ that day. Example, I have breakfast ADR at AK, however would like to plan for MK later in the day, and I have the dessert party in the evening, thus I would like to plan my FP+ for MK, it is only giving me the option of AK

Thanks, do we get something in the mail besides the Magicbands telling us about them?

Click Modify, then click 'back', the screen comes up that the top option is select, click select and it starts over for the day and you can pick a new park.
