I used the paper tickets for the off site days with no problem and my bands were at resort for me and working fine with the linked tickets yesterday.

The only issue I'm having is I can't change any of my FP+ selections on the app for some reason. I could do so at the in park kiosk yesterday and concierge was able to do changes last night for me. He thinks it has something to do with me having a gap in my park days between when I was off site and yesterday.
Wow.. what a weird glitch. That does help though! Thanks!

Need Help?
If you have further questions, please call 407-939-7849 between the hours of 7:00 am EST and 11:00 pm EST.

Here is the number I called.
Thats interesting, My tickets are linked and show up under my account. I assigned them to my party members and everything, even has the date of the event listed.

Being in canada mine are selected as will call pick up, but I was still able to link them with my confirmation number. I will probably pick them up from guest services to be safe, but might just play it off and see what happens when I say there linked to my band.

Booked my 9 night stay at the Pop Century Resort via Hotels.com and after a few calls to hotels.com, I managed to successfully link the reservations to MDE. I added my family members to my account. I am hoping for an invite to use the Magic Bands. Is there anything else I should do to help me get an invite? I haven't bought my tickets yet but plan on doing so from Undercover Tourist soon.

When is your trip? You do need to link tickets to be able to use Magic Bands. But once you do that you should be good to go.

Hey Mike, I'm booked for Nov 4th. I was going to order my park hopper tickets from Undercover Tourist as soon as I clarify that it would only cost me 10 bucks each to add 1 extra day to my 5 day park hopper ticket after one use.

So once I get these tickets, I can manually link them to MDE correct? Once this is done, do they automatically allow me to order and customize my magic bands?? I have 68 days (yes the countdown is on yay) to go so I do have time to get these done in time.

November isn't open yet so keep watching until it is posted that November is open.

I would say its very likely as pop has been included in the aug and sept tests. I doubt it will happen right away, but you should be good to go if and when they extend the tests.

Has anyone done this with Florida Resident Tickets? My boyfriends family is coming up for a visit and they will be staying at AoA and using Florida resident tickets. I want to make sure they will be able to use FP+.

Here, there, where ever. There are threads for every month and I'm pretty sure I saw a November thread already so if you find that, watch there.

You need to link park admission to use the MagicBands for park entry and FP+. You can still get and use MagicBands for room entry and charging if you don't link admission.
