You'll also see a link that says "Personalize Magicbands". You may have to do online check-in (or redo online check-in) in order to see the personalize link.

I've found that a few things vary on MDE depending on which browser you're using.
Ok...thank you I can't do online cgeck in until next week. I'm not even sure I'd do it even if I was one if the chosen. I don't want that much planning involved in our trip. Can you use them like a regular FP....just walk up to the ride and scan it for a come back time?

I don't think I could do that. Ill check again after I do online check in next week. I'm still up in the air about using it even if I am chosen.

We booked an entire pkg so we should be good.

I never received an email about taking part in the test, but I received an email saying my magic bands have shipped.

To do regular FP you use your KTTW card. How many days out are you? Most people are scheduling FP+ and designing magic bands at about 20-30 days out. They are getting official word about test participation at 17 days out.

No - FP+ can only be scheduled ahead of time (3 per day - 1 park only), or sometimes on the same day (using the MDE website, app, or an in-park kiosk) but there's a chance certain rides won't be available to reserve a new FP+ on that same day. (Some attractions may sell out of FP+ in advance of the day, but you're still eligible for regular FP and standby lines either way).

You really have nothing to lose by getting the bands (in fact, they might even be giving them to everyone at check-in at some point anyway). You would also get a regular KTTW card at check-in, that card will make your stay just like everyone else's. Reserving your 3 FP+ per day is really just an added bonus, since you can still use regular FP anyway.

So basically there's no disadvantage to getting a Magicband or applying for FP+. If it ever becomes too much work or you have issues, you can just use your KTTW card and do all the same old activities (like getting FP).

34 DAAAAAAAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.... yeah I might be more excited than our kids. Looking forward to free dining, now if I could just do it without gaining 20 lbs in the two weeks, it would be great. Flights changed, so now we are not getting the rental van, really hoping the buses are really that much better than ASM, especially at night after the fireworks. That was horrible last year with our 4 little ones.(2 of them were crying for almost an hour straight, other 2 asleep on the concrete, 2 hour long wait to get on a bus).

Returned from our first POP trip last week and I can't wait to go back. It was our first time staying on-site and POP delivered. The rooms were clean, the CM's were friendly and helpful and the pools were great. We stayed in the 50's section Building 1. It was right in front of the 50's pool and a 3 minute walk to dining and the main pool. My only complaint was that the options at the food court weren't that great and the place was a mess. The soda machines especially. Not enough to deter me from coming back though, we really loved it. No working fridge in our room but we picked up a cooler from Walmart and had no problem getting ice from the ice machine.

The Magic Bands were awesome. No glitches or issues at all. We were able to switch rearrange and reschedule FP's while at the park.
