Can other people who were unable to customise their Magic Bands yesterday try this again today and see if it now works? Because of the date move from 2nd to 3rd Sept, I wonder if some systems were a day out of sync for 18-days prior-to-launch system access?

"Tickets" as in theme park admission passes. As long as your park tickets are attached to your reservation in MDE, you should be OK. If your tickets are separate, you need to 'link' them to your hotel booking in MDE before you can book any FP+ times.

Everything will then work via your personal Magic Band (hotel room door, theme park admission, FastPass+, dining credits, shopping charging, etc). You should not need a separate park ticket.

My only concern with the bands is they are listed with a check in of 9/12.. thats our RO date.. wonder if when we go back down the 13th to check back in and such all our entitlements will be there!

So, looks like we're getting magic bands, we have fastpass+ scheduled, a BOG lunch fastpass (with our food already picked) and a stay at POR with free dining.

Is it weird that I am most excited to see POR and stay/experience somewhere new? I don't think we will ever want to go back to Pop!

I am currently booked in a FD RGR but am still trying for a preferred room. I can switch to a FD GV and save $400. Location is more important than view but $400 is a lot of money! I am guessing we would be far from the main building but do you think it would be that much further than where the RGR are, we are a family of 3 so I would assume we would get placed in the mansions section. What would you do?

I only passed on the Magic Band customisation issue in general terms, not on a person-by-person basis. Hopefully it will be working better soon anyway, as a few people seem to have had some success today.

Sounds fine to me. AB might be a bit limited due to all the Preferred rooms there (although building #38 would work) but there are a number of mansion building rooms that would fit that request.

Thanks Andre!

Check in Sept 5th at POR for 9 nights with FD. FP+ was enabled Wed night, Did online check in, then last night did all my FP+'s. First thing this morning at 6am was able to customize bands. Loved how the system did FP+! Great suggestions and got an extra one on 1 day.

BTW: Added a day to my reservation last week and got aother whole boik with all the info and coupons! Are both good?

Thank you Andre for taking time during your vacay to do all this stuff for us, for honoring their request to wait - that is why they trust you, and for providing us so much good information. I'm still several weeks from vacation but you and Venom and all the others that help have already made it better!
