MagicBands are still being tested. Nobody knows whether or not testing will be continued into September, but chances are fair.

If they are available to you, the option to customize them for your trip will show up in the Plan and Manage section on the My Disney Experience portion of the site.

Thank you for this helpful reply. I was wondering the same thing about my Sept trip!

My DD and I are visiting in August and staying at Pop Century. We have been able to select bands and add FP+ options to them.

A friend and her family are visiting in September and also staying at Pop Century. As of last evening selecting bands and adding the FP+ option was not available to her on MDE.

Things can change but as of now I don't believe the testing has been extended past August. Hopefully it will though!

I'm arriving in late Sept @ POP (I booked through Disney), and I've done online check-in, but no Magicbands or FP+ offer as of yet. I do get that generic "Are you ready for a new kind of magic" pop up, but I'm not able to make FP+ selections or customize magicbands.

I'm still 60 days out though.

Ideally, I'd get magicbands, FP+, and also KTTW cards so I can double dip FP in September/October

Obviously nothing for November, yet - but I could have sworn I saw someone with a Jan trip already able to get MB's.

I am so confused!

It's possible the person was staying during this upcoming test and was also going to be visiting again in January.

January is too far out for them to be sending Magicbands yet, anyway. Even if MBs and FP+ was going to be fully rolled out by then, they wouldn't be eligible to customize or receive them yet.

Or maybe they were talking about dining reservations? January is 180 days out right now.

That makes SO much sense - thanks for calming me down!

I am part of the test group at pop for August. Picked my band and made my FP+ picks. I also have a trip planned for November and it says I can start picking my bands August 25th. Have to check if that includes the FP+.
