I can see right now that some DVC visitors at the contemporary and animal kingdom are probably wondering how to get the bands since guest staying at those hotels are allowed to have them. The kiosks are probably all over and some of the DVC children want to buy some of the cool things they see.

Hey we all have to tell our kids they can't buy things they want, but to me Disney should have chosen hotels that didn't seem to segment its guests for some to be part of the test and others staying (paying the same if not much higher room rates) are not.
The kiosks are not all over. LOL

I stayed at AKL as part of the testing and never saw anything related to MBs the whole time. In fact, I haven't seen anything anywhere for sale that are for MBs.

I have not walked into the Cont. to see the store there but if your children want jibbitz for the bands, buy them. I'm pretty sure they would be just as interested in them as they would be interested in the bling for iPhones.

Quick question. When I hit the fast pass + selection on mde the following message comes up. "The selected date must be within one party members fast pass + selection window". We are going September 23-30. This message has never popped up till today. Any indication this may mean fast pass + in my future? wishful thinking. ...

I have also had that window popping up occasionally for the past few days. The calendar days shadowed in the background are for August. It may just be a glitch, but also gives my hope that something is in the works.

I'm not arriving until the last week of Sept. For me, when I click on a link to make FP+ selections, the MDW website will waffle between showing me one of two things: 1) the pop-up explaining that MyMagic is coming; 2) the FP+ selection page.

It seems to be slightly random which will happen based on what page I'm on within the MDE website.

When 2) happens, I see dates, but a pop up says "We're Sorry!
The selected date must be within at least one party member's FastPass+ selection window."

It's been doing this for a while now.

This is happening to others as well. For me it happens when I first open FP+ from the drop down menu. It happens each time I go to the site, but only the first time I click there. Then the site seems to correct itself. A glitch?

One of these days it is going to open a calendar with my dates on it and I am ready to choose my FPs.

I've been seeing the same thing until a few days ago. Also, after I clicked FP+ link, it would make me login, then I would see the calendar and the "We're Sorry" message. When I click ok on the message, it was making me login again. At least that was happening until the other day when after making my usual clicks to look for magic band/fp+ I was prompted to take a survey. It was mainly about MDE and when I got a question about technical difficulties, I went into great detail about having to login twice within 2 minutes. I have to give kudos to the IT department, because it was fixed the NEXT day. Maybe coincidence but it hasn't happened since.

I'm still hoping to see the right dates display soon!!

Not to get anyones hopes up, but I got this when I tried to play with plus. It is the same error message everyone else is getting, but we arrive Sept 13th to BC and do have dinner at Yacht our first night and we do (I just noticed ) actually have three dinners at GF. Maybe plus is coming for us?

I've gotten the same thing, I'm not sure it means anything at all.
My dates are Aug 31 - Sept 14, AKL

I saw that message too. Think it was just a glitch.

That is interesting. I just tried it and I still see today's date and the rest of the week. We are staying at ASMo.
