To those arriving in October or November, have you had any luck in A) selecting FP+ times, or B) customizing magic bands?

We arrive in November, and when I click on FP+ under MDE, I receive an error message that says: We're Sorry! The selected date must be within at least one party member's FastPass+ selection window.

Again, I know not to worry until after I get my email/letter of invitation to FP+, but am just curious as to what other Oct.-Dec. travelers are experiencing.

Ah Andre - your pictures make me smile, and sigh...wishing I was already there!

Just love them! Thank you so much for taking the time to do the web site and for sharing all these wonderful things with us!

Same here. No luck with Magic Bands or FP+. We check in 10/5 and I am also curious what others are seeing. We are 46 days out.

Ours arrived today too! We arrive on Sept. 18 for a one night stay before our cruise. Then come back to the Poly for a three night stay.

Ours came today too! I customized them on Friday and the box was on the porch when I came home this afternoon.

Nope, not yet, we're due to check in Oct 8. Per earlier messages from Andre, I'm guessing they are releasing access in batches and have only opened through Sept. 28 so far.

Hi everyone - my understanding is that they are only testing through the end of September.

My trip is from 9/26 - 10/14 and I can only get FP+ until 9/30. I get the bands because of the 9/26-9/30 portion of my trip.

So I am wondering what we are supposed to do for the rest of the vacay?

You don't mention bands for your Poly portion? or is Poly not in the test group?

Asking because I have a friend who is also doing something like you and I told her Poly CR and GF were on the test group - opps gave her wrong info if it isn't!

I guess I got lucky them because I am doing the same as you but staying one night at CR, then my cruise, and then POR after so I am getting two sets of bands!

What does everyone else think before I carry on to produce more full versions?

Riverside Mill and Marina: www.portorleans.org/images/panoramas/POR-Main-2013-2741-pano360.swf (this one was a bit of a risk; I really didn't think I'd be able to compensate for the exposure issues of shooting some of the angles directly into the sun - but it worked out OK I think)

I love the AB panorama. We will be staying there in two rooms with 10 people in November. Hoping for a little Fall color. There is very little pictures of the outside of AB buildings. Mansions get all the glory, and they are glorious. We are looking forward to the secluded peace of AB though.

Andre said that the expectation is that once implemented, MB's will be a permanent part of POR, unless they encounter problems with the new system.

Andre, love the panoramas-especially the one of the AB grounds! Our last 2 stays were in buildings 14 and 17...can't wait to go back in December!

Please stop licking your monitor. It's hard to clean the smudges off, and electrocution sounds painful.

I'm only guessing here disneymania................Since I would think the majority of folks pay their packages off near or on the 45 day mark, and Disney offers online check-in at 60 days out, one would assume this is a common place issue.

I to will be playing my balance off very close to my 45 day mark.Probably one day before it actually

So, maybe someone who has dealt with this will chime in for us
