In fact, today when I clicked on FastPass+ from the My Disney Experience dropdown it forwarded me to the Select a Day page!! The dates displayed were Aug 10th - 14th and then a pop up appeared stating "The selected date must be within at least one party member's FastPass+ selection window."

I am really crossing my fingers that this means my family has been selected!!
I just tried this and got the same thing. Hmmm, I wonder if it means anything or if everyone gets this page.

I could be wrong but it's a gut feeling I've had since I heard about that claim earlier this week.
Ah ok! No problem lol. I do have a contact at CSR who stated she believes there will be more MagicBand testing for Sept, but has no idea if they will test at CSR or not.

Just keeping my fingers crossed

When are you arriving at WDW? We arrive on the 3rd of Sept. Could this be the beginning of the next testing rollout?

Weird! I see Aug 10th - 14th only and yes I saw Oct flicker onto the page as well and then disappear.

Plus I couldn't see that page until today.

Let's keep up our wishful thinking until they tell us otherwise

Well the available dates to book FP+ still end Sept 28th. I can click on dates up to the 9th of Oct but there are no FP+ slots available in any park and I get an error message.

So either they are going to let the testing roll through the 28th and then plan to bring FP+ fully online with the 60day window for those traveling around Tgiving and let the system sit idle for 60days (doesn't seem like they would do that) or they are going to roll it out for an Oct launch and are going to make sure the system opens for everyone at the same time (level playing field).

And the above are both just my opinion and speculation not fact in any way. Other than the last day to use FP+ currently is Sept 28th, that is a fact.

It just doesn't seem like they would test their new toys now and then put them away until the new year when the holidays will really be a true test of system capacity and stabilization.

I'm not sure about event tickets because I'm not familiar with whether or not FP is up and running during parties. But AP are definitely part of testing. There are lots of AP holders who have, are or will be testing. I'm an AP holder and have been testing since July.(I'm a local). So if you are staying at a hotel that will be part of a test, definitely make sure to get your APs linked up in MDE. if the link tickets one doesn't work, go to your profile and at the bottom should be a link that says something like are you an AP holder? , click that and it will link your APs for you.

No FPs during hard-ticket events, at least to this point.

Annnnd now it's gone. I'm getting an updated looking MDE page though. I'm assuming the other was a glitch.

Or all the hotels that tested this month go off of testing and new ones replace them.

I believe AKL and contemporary were used in the past and are still on it...right? POP is new to the test as well as yacht or beach, i forget which is in this round...The idea is to add hotels to increase the load, and the hotels that are picked are picked to give the right testing numbers, that is all.

Also from Canada and arriving on Sept 2 in POR however I am not able to register with MDE . It won't let me accept the terms at the bottom. I called IT and it is a known issue so I just keep trying. I would really like to test the Magic Bands.

Every time I try to link mine I get "server busy". The two (out of three that I have) shown on the page have the wrong numbers. Hunkajunk.
