For those going in late OCT, have you done online check in yet? We are at POR oct 26-nov 3... So still 64 days out, and nothing is showing up for us yet.

anyone staying at WL?

I swear, WL gets no love. I've been hearing that they are nowhere on the horizon for Magic Bands.

Anyone else staying there in October? We'll be there 10/19-10/26.

So, I posted earlier today about staying at POR from 10/6-10/12 and not having the ability to order my magicband or make fastpass+ choices.

As of around 7pm today, I can make fastpass+ choices. However, I can't order my magicband. Is that normal?

(I have a room package that I booked with tickets.)

I'm booked at Pop October 22nd-31st, and whenever I log into MDE and click on FP+, it comes up with some August dates and then an immediate pop-up that says those dates don't match my reservation dates, before I even get a chance to change the selection dates to October Is anyone else having this issue, or does it just mean I haven't been selected? I'm wondering if I should call

We are staying at the Poly Oct 27th to Nov 4th. Today when I logged in, I am able to customize magic bands and do fastpass+ picks. However, When I try to customize the bands, it only shows grey as the color. I am waiting and hoping that changes...don't want grey.

I'm checking into the Poly the same day as you, and I don't even have that option.

Have any new hotels been added? It seems everyone able to book fasspass+ is staying at POR, Poly, POP, and Contemporary.. all of which are the previous months testing hotels. Any word on any new testing hotels for October yet?

We're staying at Yacht Club from Oct. 20-25 and have NOT done online check-in, but we were able to make FP+ reservations this evening. No sign of MagicBand customization yet though.

Perhaps online check in isn't needed, and all you need to be is 60 or fewer days out.

It hasn't been so far with all the testing. That makes sense because eventually (in theory based on what Disney has said) the FP+ system will only be tied to your ticket and not your resort.

I am staying at AKL Jambo Villas (not using DVC points) from October 26 to November 3.

I have just been able to customise my MagicBand - well kind of anyway. I can not choose a colour (grey is the only colour available) but I can personalise with my name.

I can not book FP+ yet.

Very exciting
