Cool

I'm surprised to see that many people have been able to customize their MB 4-5 weeks in advance. I sent an e-mail to Disney this week about my reservation for AOA october 27th and I've been told that I would know if I've been chosen for the test 17 to 20 days before my vacations!

I heard we can now do advanced check-in 60 days before our reservation (that would be next tuesday for us)... I'm praying to be chosen!

You can't count on being notified. Just keep checking your My Disney Experience account.
I was never notified, but stumbled upon it one day while logging in to MDE.
Customized my bands on the 20th. Showed up at my door this morning (22nd).

My dates are Sept 20th - 30th

Is there anyone that has screen shots of what we should see if we have been selected? It sounds like Kidani is not a test but one can still hope!

Staying at POP on Sept 22 and just happened to check My Disney Experience yesterday and there it was! I went to Customize Magic Bands and it had a little red box in the corner that said 'last day to customize bands". I got to pick out the colors and the names on them. It said they will ship to my house, rather than be at my hotel when I check in. So excited!

Maybe it's a coincidence in my case, but my MB confirmation number is the same as the first of my three reservation numbers....

Anyone got MB's and are at BLT?

So my cruise group over on FB has sent me to query the group. There seems to be a number of people staying at BLT (on the cruise group) who can't get them to show up on their account, and since I saw that the Contemporary was on the list of test resorts for Sept- I was wondering if anyone here is actually at BLT in September and got MB's????

Can you only make a quick service reservation at BOG if you are part of the magic band testing? I tried the link but my resort reservation has both letters and number and it doesn't take the letters. I really don't care about the MB but would love to be able to book a QS lunch at BOG for our girls.

Thanks!

Magic Bands with BOG res.

You have to have the Magic bands or be eligible for the magic bands to get the fast pass BOG Lunch Reservations. I received mine in the mail a few days ago and they choose people for the bands by resort that you are staying at.

I followed peoples instructions on here to access the page to do the entry for Fast pass for BOG but it wouldnt let me put myreservation number in that has alphabet letters that i received from them. I called and they gave me a different number to use then it let me pick my meals.

Like someone said earlier. It's not the resort resi id. It's a long number linked to your magicband page in MDE. Looks like a dining resi number.

Where are you getting the reservation number to put in the system? The only one I can locate in my account is the alpha-numeric one.

How will you show your fast passes when you don't have a Magicband?

I hope this doesn't hold up the line of those waiting to have lunch, with others having fastpasses...I'm not sure I like this idea of having to make resies now for a quick service lunch even. Too much planning...I don't want my trip planned down to the minute.

My reservation # did not have any letters. It is DVC and room only, not sure if that matters.
