(Reposting this from the other thread I am on re: October!)

Okay! I just signed in and clicked the FP+. It took me to the page to select the dates and pick attractions! When I went to the Manage MagicBands - nothing. I am waiting until my friend gets home, since we are traveling together, to proceed. We are staying at Pop from Oct. 19-26. I will let you know what happens next!!

Nothing for us at the BWI yet. Seriously thinking about booking one night at Pop to book FP+. I am trying to have some patience.

I also had personalize magic bands pop up today. The only color option showing is gray. Did you have other color options besides gray?

Grey is our only option as well. I was going to try to give IT a call. Will let you know what I find out.

Purple was not an option for us, but I've read that you can purchase purple covers to go over them in the gift shop. Good luck!
Thanks for the info! I've heard mixed things about whether purple is actually an available color - i'll settle for a cover if i have to.

We were able to make our FP+ selections today (yay!), but still no option to customize magic bands. I will try the "modify" option on the website for our online checkin and see if that does it. We also might just be too far out - we don't arrive at YC until Oct 18, so we've got almost two months to go.

Thanks again! I'm excited to try these. Even DH was having fun helping me choose FP+ selections.

For those wondering about resorts, we will be at YC from Oct 18-20, and AKL from Oct 20-24. We were able to make FP+ selections from Oct 18-22 (when our APs expire).

So I guess we're left out of the fp+ mb fun. Very disappointed to say the least.

Im bummed too. But, I guess on the up side we won't have to put up with the ridiculous MDE website and app.

We'll be at POR 10/19--10/26, and I was just able to make FP+ selections for every day of our stay.

The mde app is letting me access the ff+ now starting for our stay at the poly, but because I don't have any ticketing info I can't book them. Do you think I will still be able to order my MB or will we be stuck with the grey ones once we get there?

We are AP holders, staying at BC Sept. 27-Oct 3 Then moving on the 3rd to Pop and checking out on the 6th. Last moving on the 6th to FQ and checking out on the 10th. We have been able to customize MB's in 3 different colors and complete FP+ for all days of our trip. We have not done online check in. Still confused if our AP's are on our MB or not and confused if the other resorts will transfer on them as well. Guess I'll find out at check in for sure. And on another topic-still don't know for sure if my mug I purchase will be good for my entire stay or not (at all 3 resorts) But I am very happy to be picked for the MB's and glad I don't have to make the mad morning rush to TSM.
