How will this affect early package pick-up??

Emails and letters will start going out today to inform guests arriving in 18 days that they can pre-book their FastPass+ times (up to 60 days out in fact) and customise their Magic Bands (colour and name) via the My Disney Experience site. It may not be possible for Disney to contact all guests (e.g. those who have booked via some travel agents) but the new system will still apply to everyone regardless.

Continental USA guests should be able to get their Magic Bands mailed out in advance, others will need to pick them up at the Front Desk when they check in. Key cards will still be issued as a backup for the foreseeable future.

While this is still officially classified as a "test", the general expectation is that unless there are major problems this will most likely remain permanent from now on.

French Quarter will follow within the next few months.

Andre
Andre - Any idea how this will affect early package / ticket pick-up. Due to our dates, we have a one day stay at POR followed immediately by a 5night stay w/ 7 day tickets (and free dining).

I had planned on early package pick-up, per Chesire's post in the ticket sticky, but now does this mean we are out of luck? Unfortunately, I really need part access on day 1, as 13 of us have Cinderella's table reservations at the MK.

Any thoughts?

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)?
You can use your KttW (or MagicBand) to charge purchases or food at DTD too, and as long as you're checked in it will work fine (you only need to know the room number for package delivery).

FP+ appears to require that your tickets are attached to the room reservation. If your tickets are already part of a room package I guess they should already be linked, but it they are separate you would need to link them in the MDX software first. Try it and see what happens!


Has anyone yet been able to customise their Magic Bands for a POR stay yet by the way? I see lots of people setting up their FP+, but no so many talking about being able to set up bands.

Hi - Checking into POR on Sept 7th (23 more days!) - can't customize Magic Band (yet??!!!). Just a teaser pop-up yesterday afternoon stating that my Magic Bands were available to customize - my daughter and I were dancing all around, until I actually clicked the link and it basically disappeared and left me on the main MDE page...Will post as soon as I am able to book them (you may hear us cheering!!)....

Also wanted to note Fast Pass + has added some options that were not available for us yesterday. Just signed in and noticed Pirates, Belle and few others are now options for FP+. Still waiting to see if Fireworks and/or Parade viewing become options.

We were part of the Fast Pass+ test grp last Sept which only had a couple of options - so excited to see all of the choices - and ability to customize the times - EXCELLENT!

I think we are going to try to switch from POFQ to Riverside so we can be part of the MB and FP+ testing. Am I crazy to do that? We have another group going with us and they are Pop so we are going to have to tour separately now if don't.

October dates and FP+

We check into POR October 2nd. Will we be able to preselect FastPass+? Will it be a testing phase or full roll out at that point?

Thanks!

Oh man, I was SO excited reading today about the Magic Bands being rolled out at POR during my stay! This is our first family vacation ever, and it's becoming a dream vacation! Scoring FD, getting to book a Royal Room with it, getting all of the ADR's I wanted (except BOG), and now FP+ and Magic Bands?! I was so hoping we could try out the bands but thought it was a no-go for us!

I....CAN'T.....WAIT!!!!!! Yayyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!
