I checked first thing this morning and was hoping since it was August there might be some change other than the pop-up I've been getting, but no such luck.

The only value resort in which everyone is being given the opportunity to participate in MagicBands and Fastpass + is Pop Century. We arrive on Aug 31 for 8 nights. We have already customized magicbands and are currently in mist of selecting our Fastpass for each day.

I'm worried about it being rolled out and trying to figure it out and deal with the problems too. I guess we will see! :-)
They know. My 3 year old has been 4 times already, so he keeps telling me all the stuff he wants to do. I'm crossing my fingers he will be tall enough for Splash!

I think the key thing there is that you arrive in August. I think for people checking in September 1 or later, the option isn't there anymore.

The e-mail and letter appear to be set to send 17 days prior to arrival. A lot of folks saw the option to customize bands and actually receive them around the 30 day mark or so. The e-mail and later came after they already had the bands/reservations.

Staying at POP starting Oct 18, with room,tickets and dining package, so its still a little early for me to hear anything about bands and FP+. 2 questions tho.......
1) on MDE (using iphone), where exactly are you seeing the tabs for customizing magic bands and setting up your FP+?

2) when I check MDE (iphone) under tickets and passes, it says link a ticket. is it not showing up because I have a package? if tickets don't show up, will I have a problem setting up FP+ (if selected, of course)? it took many calls to be able to see my reservation in order to do my ADR's.

Here's hoping for a smooth experience with this new technology....

1. On IPad I see nothing related to Magic bands or FP+. On computer running IE10 I see something about fp+ under plan and manage header and when I click that it brings up the are you ready for a new kind of magic that basically just says link res and ticket, family.

2. I get same thing on Ipad and android phone ( although I had update this am that I haven't checked on yet). I at one time could see my name under tickets and something about nontransferable ( we had 8 dph on may pkg.) On computer I can see my AP card(green) and another AP card ( green), 1 kttw card from may 2013 trip, under my name, and 2 kttw under friend I manage. I'm assuming the other AP card listed under me is really friend's but I haven't verified.

We check in on August 31st at Pop. Today MDE is giving me the option to make FP+ reservations for my entire 4 day trip. I don't think I am going to do it though. I really DON'T want to be shut out of regular FP for the trip.
