Got my "Personalize Magic Bands" message tonight. It was not there before dinner, but after dinner.....pixiedust! It was so fun! FP+ was confusing at first because of the newness, but after it's easy to pick up. I had no problems with scheduling or changing the times given to me. Even when my two guys will be in one park and me in another, there was no issue in scheduling. Worked like a dream. SO excited! We check into WL on Oct 30. I hope you all get the opportunity as well.

Woohoo. Thanks for the tip. I just checked our dates for fastpass+ selections. It looks like I can schedule 10/27 through 10/31 now. Hopefully, it lets me add the other days later. I am going to pick rides for those days now.

This is my family. I found it, all on my own. Is little, and broken, but still good. Yeah, still good.

Yes.. It was a bunkbed room. It is the 2nd time I have gotten the room. I had a standard view booked but when I checked in, I asked if a room "near 2113" was available . I totally forgot it was a bunkbed room.. I just remembered it was on lobby level super close to buses, and the back door that goes over to RF.

We got the exact room... I was thrilled because I would have been happy with the room across the hall with a view of the villas.. It was more about the area than view.

I will definitely be checking in here with you guys periodically and (if I can figure out how to) will attempt to post pictures as well.

Hi all

I just checked my reservation for the WL on MDE and it says under MagicBand and Cards and under Your Orders I have quantity 3 under Magic Bands and next to my resort reservations and confirmation number. It then has a Shipping Address button. Can anyone tell me what this means? I'm from Australia so would they ship something to me or do I just pick it up at check in?

The whole Magic Band thing is new to WL, so I think if you ask your question on the October thread, someone there might have an answer for you.

Any OCTOBER guests received FP+ testing invite?

But if it was me, I'd go ahead and customize my bands and let Disney worry about whether they would ship them to Australia or leave them at the desk for pickup. Let us know how the process went. I think those of us with upcoming trips would love to know how it worked for you.

I just clicked the links and it let me customise them so I guess that means we got them! It says I have till 30 sept to customise but there is a Done button so I'm thinking of clicking that soon as I'd rather they sent them sooner. I called Disney and they said at this stage they do not ship overseas but the customised magicbands would be waiting for us at check in! Woohoo!

Have to read up on Fastpass+ now!

We also were just able to customize Magic bands for our trip arriving Oct 30. We are trying to figure out the FP+ now.

Hmmm...we're arriving on Nov 1, and have already done online check-in. I went back in this morning and did the whole "update my check-in" thing and still no MB's.

I've gone from wanting to avoid MB's and FP+ to now being afraid that we're going to miss out!

I'm hoping once my TA releases all my reservation #'s etc (not sure if all TA policy or just her company) when I make my final payment today, that I'll have the Magic Band option for my November trip.

I'm just not sure what happens with the MDE app/site. Do I have to manually plug in all my info. Reservation # and ADR confirmations?
