We're staying Sept 24th-Oct 1st at AoA and got the magic band notification last Wednesday, I was able to immediately customize them and pick out the FP+ selections online.

No FP+'s for the special events tho, was hoping to see those. Any tips?

My first stay Sept 25-28 is at POFQ - I am staying the 29th at AoA. My park tickets are in a MYW package with Free Dining, attached to my POFQ stay. Is this why it won't work? All my reservations show up in MDE.

Make sure everyone on your reservation is set up under your profile as family and friends. If they have a profile set up ask them to ok. Your being able to see and make plans for them.

Hmmm... possibly why it won't work. You could always call CR and see if they can link it all up.
Do you have a seperate confirmation number for AoA, and have you linked that to your MB's?
I would think as long as part of your res is at a test resort, you should be able to do the FP+.
I would call CR if you're having trouble and have them link the AoA resort with everything as well so you can customize.

The conf. number for AoA is the only one attached to the MBs - our big free dining package at POFQ isn't. It only opens up FP+ availability for Sept 29, even though we aren't even going to the parks on our last day.


I am planning to call CR as soon as I am holding my Magicband - we still want them even if they don't work during most of our stay :P

I'm sure they can sort it for you... there's no reason why your MB's shouldn't work for the duration if you've got a confirmed room at the AoA test resort.
Good luck

Can you post me in the direction of these reports please? I haven't seen any and I have been stalking these boards! I did see one yesterday of someone who made a ghost reservation and did not cancel but I haven't seen any live reports from people that have cancelled and have gotten them to work. Thanks!

9/26 no bonus, parades or MSEP

9/27 no bonus (MNSSHP so no chance or MSEP/Wishes)

I'm not sure if they're in this thred or another one, but I know I have seen 3 separate people post about making ghost ressies and cancelling once they got their bands, and everything worked out fine.

One was from someone who is currently there and the other 2 were from people who had just returned and said they had no issues with the MB's and were even able to use them as room keys for the Contemporary and Y & B resorts.
