If you only have three and want a fourth, you should be able to create a brand new set of selections from scratch and the bonus should be given.

At least, this has been my experience.
Hoping theyr still working on it because I got everything I want from 22-24 but still want an illuminations on the 26 and don't c it yet....fingers crossed that they will add stuff for those later days in Sept

Ok magic bands question.....
I customized a week and a half ago, then my internet @ the house stopped working and still isn't! So i could watch my customize days count down on my app, yesterday it was @ 0, today I can't click on it and it doesn't say shipping or anything....

Is this normal on the app?

Could someone walk me through it? Thanks!
You go to the Disney site>sign in>place your mouse on My Disney Experience>scroll down to FastPass+. Then you Select the date you want to modify and click NEXT. That will bring you to 4 different options (Replace, Change, Copy & Cancel). Choose CHANGE then click NEXT. Select the FastPass you want to change (just choose one if you are just searching to see if anything new has been added) and click NEXT. The next page gives you 2 options.....either Change the Experience or Change the Time. Choose CHANGE THE EXPERIENCE, and SELECT ALL to highlight all the guest in your party and click NEXT. The next page shows the choices available to you.....if the events or rides you wanted to book are not listed, just click cancel (at the bottom left) and it backs you out of the system and nothing will change on your already booked FP+ choices. Do NOT click on the cancel button on the center of the page, that will cancel your FP+ choices (although it does give you a warning first so you can back out of that as well if you accidentally click it).

Some of the MB users that have already gotten their MBs said they received a shipping notification AFTER their MBs arrived at their house LOL so I'm guessing that system is quite slow to update.

Still no bonus FP+ for Sept 26 onwards, and no fireworks or parades on those dates either. BOO! Come on IT, I check it every single day!

I just helped out a friend who is going Sept 15-21 and staying at POR. Got the MagicBands and set up her FP+ selections. One tip: She's spending 2 days at MK. It automatically loaded her a bonus selection for "Under the Sea" both days. That gave her 4 choices instead of 3. Went in and adjusted the second day of "Under the Sea" to another ride and it allowed the change. Now she has an extra selection of her own choosing.

Just read online that if you touch the new MagicBands to the new Disney Infinity video game base ir will unlock a new "Dragon Gate" toy and once u place the Dragon Gate in the game "Dragon's Flight Sky" appears - a fire breathing dragon. So cool!

Our magic bands arrived today (10:00 am EST), but the shipping confirmation email came around the same time (5:00 am EST). No pre-notice really.

On the Disney Website, all it said was that they were customizing our bands and would be shipping them soon. It still said that last night. Then this morning the bands showed up.

Thank you so much, that is a great step by step and helps so much!

I'm Oct 19th- and I didn't get a bonus for any of my MK FP+ days, weekend and weekday... Tried the Fastpicks trick some had suggested and didn't work. Also no parades, Fantasmic or Wishes.

If everything was deleted when I cancelled, how did it re-appear when I re-booked?

My curiosity got the best of me, so I once again cancelled my ghost reservation. And once again my access and FP+ reservations disappeared. When I logged into MDE clicked on my reservations nothing showed up. When I click on "FastPass+" I get the tired old "Are you ready for the magic" window.

Now here is where it gets interesting. Our Magic Bands are still linked to our account and AP's. Also when I click on "My Itinerary" and select a day from my reservation, all of my FP+ reservations are listed. When I click on any of them, the little window pops up showing all three of us still linked to the fast pass. I can click "Modify FastPass+" in the lower corner and I can still change experiences and times of the FP's if I want.

The only caveat is that Tuesday was our water park day so I did not have any FP+ reservations scheduled for that day. I have not found a way to schedule new experiences for that day, but I am still working on that. I am sure there is a way.

It looks like it just may work!!
Thanks so much for the update!

We did the very same thing when making our selections! We got Wishes, the parades, and Fantasmic!

OMG here I was for the longest time wondering why I couldn't get bands for the second half of my stay at AoA at the end of September (already have bands for my POP portion), since I read so many reports of people on split stays getting 2 sets of bands. This whole time I thought it was because my second half check in date didn't fall within the testing window.

Today, out of nowhere, I realized that I had to modify my check in at POP to customize my bands (since I had checked in online before September testing was added to the system I didn't get to customize until I modified it), but I never modified my AoA ressie! So I did it now and poof! A second set of bands to customize! Yippee!

Now if only I could decide if I want another color or stick with the same for me and DD (red for me, pink for her) ... I wish they had purple.
