I customized ours last week, I think on Thursday, and they still say that they're being customized and will ship soon. I have about 20 days before my trip.

"CBR needs to get with the program."

Amen! I am so annoyed that they haven't been part of any testing! I am going September 25 and staying until October 5, oh how I wish I could test the bands!

Testing Magic Bands at Pop

We got a letter in the mail and via email inviting us to try the magic bands. We got it last Thursday and we are arriving at Pop on 9/2 and leaving 9/7. I am excited about trying out the new system.

When you say Contemporary, does that include Bay Lake Tower?

So I'm staying at the art of animation resort from September 8-13. On my disney experience it let me customize my bands and choose fast pass+ but I've still not recieved any emails I customized on Saturday. When I called disney they said they didn't know if my resort was getting them, and it could be a fluke, and to wait due the email. Now I'm nervous I really want them!

I wouldn't worry! From what I've read from others that is pretty typical. Most got to make FP+ and customize MB way before the emails or letters in the mail came to them. Most had their MB at their house before being notified of being a tester. The IT people have said if you're at one of the "testing resorts" then you are included in the test. So no worries! Congrats!!!

OH! And

17 days out today... got the letter to participate in the test via UPS today. On Sunday night (19 days out), I saw that I could customize bands on MDE and did. They MB's came on the same truck that delivered the invitation to test them. Quick turn around!
I haven't done FP+ because I don't really want to plan ahead. With the uncertainty in the testing phase, I don't want to link my UT tickets and be stuck not being able to use old FP. Sounds like the August test allowed both FP and FP+, but who knows how it will work in September... I don't even think Disney knows!

I'm going to go out on a limb and say yes. I say this because my stay from sept 12-16 is at BCV, and then the night of the 20th is at BLT. My first stay is likely the one that qualified me but either way, both are at DVC properties.

Okay...so after seeing the message in MDE, I clicked on the link to begin customizing.
But, there are no magic bands displayed to customize??

Now, I did not receive an email or anything with an invitation, just happened to notice the option when logging in to MDE.

Not sure if I should call, wait for an email, or just leave it alone.
