Late November/Early December Magic Bands showing up!

I'm not sure if anyone else has reservations for this time....but I made reservations for November 30-December 8 for POP. After reading a ton of other posts about magic bands, it seems the consensus was magic bands popped up about 30-45 days ahead? When I logged in to MDE tonight, I was able to customize mine already! As far as I knew, everything after October 31 was sort of up in the air...even the CM through the phone reservations said he didn't know what was happening after that date. Needless to say, I'm pumped! I'd go wake up my fiance and have her customize them with me now, but she'd eat my face off for waking her up right now.

Any other late Nov/early Dec folks seen theirs pop up yet?

We check in Nov 26 and nothing yet...I thought people said they had to wait to do the on-line check-in at 60 days out first before those options being available? Now I'm nervous I didn't do something right!

I'm 66 days away, and I definitely haven't done any sort of online check-in yet. I've just been meticulously checking MDE every day basically since I made the res. I grabbed a screenshot of the page showing the bands were ready to customize, just in case anyone were think I'm trolling. I'm still pretty new around here as far as posting (big lurker, though) so I don't know how to post the shot. I'm assuming I'll have to upload to a Photobucket/Picasa type place. Will work on that later!

Yes! We are going to 11/29-12/7 and I was able to customize my bands yesterday! Can't do fast pass + yet but I am hoping in 4 more days I can (once I hit the 60 mark)

We're going around the 2nd week of Nov and we were able to customize our bands yesterday! I was soooooo excited! Unfortunately, my mother's magic bands aren't showing. When I called we were told that since she's linked to our reservation that she will get them, but they may be there when she gets to the resort. He said that he had heard rumors about the MB test being extended to Nov but, he said that they haven't been told that they definitely would. He spoke with a supervisor and told me that I have been randomly selected. He said that there was a possibility that everyone at the resort I'm staying at will likely all get the MB! But he couldn't say for sure.

Wow that must have been so fun.

We are late December so I am sure we have to wait just a little longer to see what happens for us.

Look in your MDE app under "My account" and click on "MagicBands and Cards", then "Your New MagicBands & Cards" and then you should be able to click on the link to customize. You have to verify your address and then you can choose your name and color for each person in your party. It will tell you how many days you have remaining to customize. My option to choose "MagicBands & Cards" & "Fastpass +" just showed up on the list yesterday. Make sure you have the latest update also.

BTW, Our stay is 11/30 - 12/7 and our option just showed up yesterday night. We're 65 days out still and can't select FP+ yet. Hope in 5 more days it will.

Just finished up the customizations. I went with blue and my fiance went with green. As far as names imprinted....just went with our actual names. I thought about doing a screen name or something like that, but decided against it. It says we still have up til October 31st to make changes, so I'm guessing they'll ship out some time after that date? Can't wait to get them and get a few add-ons to them in the parks!
