By the way, has anyone here received their 18-day invitations yet? Either by email or snail mail? They were meant to be going out starting 15th Aug, but no one here has mentioned receiving anything as yet, and I'm sure we must have people arriving 3/4/5 Sept.

We check in to POR Monday the 5th and are keeping an eye on email and snail mail. Nothing yet, we are expecting to see something Monday - day 17. We have already done online check in, customized magic bands, and did all our FP+'s for our stay.

I'll report in as soon as I see anything.

Tick, tick, tick...

When I enter I see the possibility to book from sept 26 till sept 30, but only sept 26 has availability. But we are arriving on that day, so that's not possible for us.

Someone was kind enough to help me with this yesterday. You need to go to the site below and and when it asks for a ressie # use your MB confirmation number. Good luck!! Worked for me.

Im staying at POR 10/26-31..I don't see anything at MDE about MagicBands or FastPass+. Is this something I get notified of closer to my check in or should I have something that I can already see.

Guess MDE answered my worries all on its own!

I just logged into MDE and I have TWO sets of Magic Bands coming. Yesterday only one set was showing for our RO ressie..today a 2nd set for our package stay was. I customized those and now I wait!

Under my friends & family, they're listed correctly.
STITCH, just wanted to let you know I talked to IT, and she couldn't fix it and emailed it to someone who can. But she says it goes by check in date and it might not get fixed for a week or two. Again, frustrating! I guess we will see what happens, I'm interested to know when/if yours gets fixed.

Yes I have that link and can see the dates, but only sept 26 has a availability. from sept 27 till oct 2 its said no times available.

My question is, is there someone who booked a lunch from sept 27.

I can make fastpass+ reservations till sept 28. So I hoped BOG would be available on sept 27.

Yes, we got ours yesterday for arrival on the 3rd. Our bands are on their way. We also are getting bands mailed to us for our linked stay at the AOA resort.

I received an email from WDW guest services. It says that they were able to correct the problems I was having. However, they were not able to move my ADRs since they are in DH's name. But since they linked him to my account, I will be able to view them on MDE, which I checked MDE, they are there. They also gave me a 'direct line' to contact them as needed. I have not received official word on MB yet as we are 20 days out, not 17 as I was told by the CM. BUT, it now shows I have 4 MB waiting to be customized. :-)

I called yesterday afternoon, and I received the email this morning! You may to wait until your trip is closer, but I'm not sure. Good luck!

After I replied to this thread, I went online to complete the check-in, the door bell rang and it was the UPS man with a big envelope from Disney with the magic band test information. This is so exciting!

Glad the first emails are starting to get through. They should be sent to guests about 18 days before arrival date, and if you can't access FP+ or your MB customisation page at that point, contact the technical teams for help. Would anyone care to post a copy of the message that they have received?

Otherwise, the testing process seems to suggest that it would be best not to worry too much until you are inside that 18-day window. Yeah, right - after all, no one would be rushing to book their FastPasses or anything would they?
