I don't think there are any testings currently scheduled beyond the current one. (or is that one finished now?)

The last notice I can find online was the AKL and Contemporary test from 6/20 to 6/26.

There was a report just the other day that Yacht Club was issuing bands, but I haven't followed up on the report.

I would suggest you go to the Resort forum, and check out the latest posting. People will be posting before, after, and even during their visits and could give you up to date info. Sorry I couldn't help more.

OP, I havent heard about any of the resorts you listed testing. The only recent one I have heard of was the same as Reddog. I really doubt they would do Saratoga because it is so large.

Boardwalk was part of a testing back in February that lasted just a few hours because of all the issues that popped up. AKL and CR were tested in late June, but that test is long over. There was exactly one rumor post about YC testing the bands, but there were no links to support and no followup reports.

Trust me, when testing happens, it's ALL OVER this forum. Plan the trip you want and see where the chips fall.
