Since it's still in testing, regular FP should still be available. Just an educated guess for what it's worth...

Edited to add: I'm hoping we'll get to do FP+ on the "day of" once our CM friend's signs us into the park, using the app or a kiosk. I just meant I can't do FP+ ahead of time with a RO reservation (at least not at this time).
How do you link tickets if you don't have them yet?

We miss it by a day...sort of. We check in on 8/31 on a 2 night room only and then re-check in on 9/2 for our 7 night package. I'm not sure whether to be happy or not that we are not going to have to deal with this.

Has anyone been able to customize magic bands yet? I made all of my Fastpass + selections last night and even modified a few of them this morning (very easy). When I logged on to My Disney Experience, there was a pop up asking me if I was ready to customize my magic bands but when I clicked the button, it took me to the same old magic band page I have been looking at for weeks and I couldn't go any further. I logged out and logged back in awhile later and the pop up was gone and I still can't customize magic bands.

We are checking into POR on September 14.

I have a quick question about charging to the room...

Can we only charge to the room from the parks or can we also charge from DTD?
Also, we are planning to go to DTD on the day we check-in. If we can charge to the room do we have to wait until we actually have the room (can we do this even if the room isn't ready)?

I am getting SO excited!! We leave in 17 days!!

Thanks Andre!!! I am SO glad we changed our CBR reservation to a POR royal room reservation a few weeks ago!! I have been reading all the pages here for the past few weeks and was so hoping we would be able to test the bands/FP+.

WOOHOO!!!!!

Just wanted to note - we are checking into POR Sept 7 - 14. Fast Pass + was available to us beginning yesterday afternoon. Still working on our choices - such fun!!!

As others have noted, I also received a pop-up stating that our Magic Bands were available to be customized - but when I clicked on the link, it just brought me to the same old Magic Band page...Hoping it is live soon for us to customize. And of course I will post here as soon as I find out anything new!

And thanks to whoever posted about the Be Our Guest fast pass option! Grabbed a fast pass for lunch - so excited!!!!

LOVE THIS BOARD!!!!

There are places at DTD where you can charge to the room.

You get to the resort and do the checkin process. If the room isn't ready you'll still get your KTTW, etc (just not the room number), and you can proceed to charge to the room account.

Hello! The BOG fast pass option is under a separate link - not part of the fast pass selections. Here is the link:

https://beourguestlunch.disney.go.com/

I was able to book using the reservation number on our Yellow Magical Express luggage tags (it would not work with our MDE reservation which is a combo of numbers and letters). It is so cool - you can even pick what you would like to order!!! I am going to bring a print out of the BOG fast pass reservation - since it does not show up under my MDE. I can log back into this link any time to modify my reservation - even though there is no reservation number. There is a whole thread about this - if you search under BOG fast fass. Hope this helps!!! Cheers!

What number did you call to get this fixed? MDE is showing double tickets for each person in my party.

Our reservation has two tickets per person as well. I am hoping one is if we decide to participate in Magic Bands and the other if we use the traditional KTTW....wishful thinking maybe??
