We are arriving at POR on September 14. I don't really want FP+ but I am getting tired of wondering about it. If we are going to have it, let's just get on with it.

We are checking in on 8/30, leaving 9/7 (POP) and the FP+ / MB customization tab worked for us yesterday and we were able to order MB and make our FP+ ressies. Those two tabs didn't work all week last week when all the August folks were talking about FP+ reservations. Not sure if this is a glitch because we are arriving in August or if it's due to the fact that we have an AP. We ordered the MB anywayz and we'll keep our fingers crossed that we'll get them when we arrive at POP!

I was just reading this thread and decided to check our reservations (hard to believe that by 9:10 a.m. I had not already done so today) and our BWI stay from 9/1-9/8 now has FP+ activated. So my question now is are we "testers" still able to pull regular FPs or are we just normal regular users limited to our three per day?

We check in Aug. 31 at ASMu. Just checked My Disney Experience and all I got was that silly pop-up about FP+ coming.

I can make no sense of this

Here is a little more about what I am seeing and hearing. We have a one night room only stay on 8/31 at Pop Century and then a MYW stay from 9/1-9/8 at BWI under different reservation numbers. The system is letting me make FP+ reservations for 9/1-9/8. In addition, I am being given the opportunity to customize magic bands under the Pop Century reservation, despite no tickets being associated with that one.

I called Disney to ask if we are now part of tester program or if we are just part of actual live program. Unfortunately, the CM I spoke with sounded pretty clueless. After a lot of what sounded like typing at his terminal, he said the program is not live and if we did not receive an official email invitation to participate in the test (we have not) any FP+ reservation we make in the system will be blanked out.

Does anyone have any insight as to what is going on?

I'd imagine they won't decide how September will go until the August testing is underway. Based on what's been happening, nobody will receive notification they are part of a test until 17 days before they arrive.

I doubt anyone will have a good answer about September for a few more weeks.

The FP+ and regular FP system are not connected so even though you are participating in the test, you still can grab regular fast passes as normal. At least that is what I have been hearing.

My co-worker just came back from testing and she said she could ONLY do FP+ and it would not let her get a regular FP. She went through her DVC though - dunno if that makes a difference.
