Oh and now there is activity off the coast of Africa starting to brew - no surprise here - had to kick up, didn't it?
The rumor at the moment is that BC has them for sept. I am BC too and when I try to book fastpasses it tells me I need to link tickets first. i dont have tickets yet so I cant link them, but it "seems" like I could book + if I did.

Do your AP's have to be linked to your reservations to get FP +. I have tried to link them, but when I enter the barcode the screen tells me I already have a paperless ticket or pass.. We check into BC on Sept 12. Is this resort included in the FP+?

Resservation error message

So, after seeing all of the activity on this thread, I tried to make FP+ selections for our September BLT trip. I get the "Sorry..." message that others have reported.

But, I also get another error message that I haven't seen others mention. When I look at my reservations in MDE, I can see the reservation, but, at the top of the screen, I see a message that says, "One of your resort reservations needs attention!" I see no problem with the reservation. There are no other error messages on the page. I called tech support. The CM told me everything looked fine with the reservation.

Has anyone else seen this error message? I would like to give my resort reservation more attention (like selecting FP+), but MDE just won't let me!

The error is with MDE on my laptop. On the MDE app, I don't see an error message. I can't make FP+ selections there either.

I had the exact same problem for Kidani. I had to call support to get it fixed. The MDE and DVC systems don't play well together.

I have to agree with those who said disney needs to have better communication about this. If it is a glitch why would people be actually receiving magic bands? It's be one thing if you could only do things on the website but to be shipped something like that wouldn't be a glitch.

Do you know what they did to fix it? When I called, the CM told me I could ignore the message.

I have ressies for BWV and have them linked. I received the same message because of the DVC link. I called DVC member services...they unlinked them, then relinked them and it was all fixed

We are staying at AoA Sept 27 - Oct. 5. I have been checking each day to see if we can get the Magic Bands or Fastpass+. So far no Magic Bands, but I was able to book Fastpass+ for the 27 and 28. But then 29 and after nothing. I will keep checking each day and so what happens.

I called MDE tech support and they fixed it. DVC member services couldn't for some reason.

Up until now ppl at still double dipping, which I think is only fair until its fully rolled out. I know most don't see it that way. But how is it fair for say, you to only get the 3 FP+ while I can still pick up 7 or 8 FP. I know most don't see it that way, but come on, it's Sept. some days FP won't even be necessary to ride everything with wait times under 20 minutes.

Hopefully some of us start getting more answers soon

Mine was just the opposite. Disney Tech couldn't do anything, but member services had it fixed in about 5 minutes. But mine was because of the link.

Thanks for the reply. TOTALLY agree with you about the double dipping and I really hope we are able to when we go. So in order to do this I just use my magic band WITH my KTTW card? Does it matter how I get into the park (band vs. card)? I did see the Magic Band on the side but it just asks me to link one. I wasn't sure if the wording or choice changed when it would allow me to customize or if I just need to keep clicking on it and checking?
