We're at POR Oct 19-26. I'll post if/when we get an invite, band customization opens up, or fp+ selection becomes available.

I was wondering when someone would start this thread. Checking in on the 22 ASMu. Hoping to be able to use the new technology.

Summer 1979 - Stayed at Grandpa's house
Nov 1994 - Disneyland (off site)
Dec 2004 - Shades of Green

We're staying off-site, last week in October. I've linked one of my paper tickets from UT to MDE in the hopes that I'll be notified in case we need to schedule FP+ stuff. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread too.

I have never manually "linked" my tickets or reservations with MDE. But they have always shown up under "My Reservations" without issues (knock on wood), maybe because I booked a package directly through Disney. Does this mean I'm already "linked" and don't need to do that step IF we get selected for testing?

We're at POR from October 6-17. While I don't like the concept of FP+, I could live with it. Fact is, we weren't planning on using Fast Pass that much anyway by always hitting rope drop. With two rope drop days at HS, Epcot, and AK, you really don't need FP in those parks as long as you are content riding things once (which we are okay with). MK does require the use of FP, regardless of whether you hit rope drop or not, but we plan on being in and out of there enough to make it work.

That said, my fear with this rollout is not the FP+, it's the wristband. Too many stories of people getting stuck at park entrance because their bands don't work for my taste. I put too much planning into the trip and value rope drop too much to be content getting stuck at the turnstiles and miss the first 30-45 minutes of the day.

Split stay staying off-site Oct 5-9 then at the Contemporary Oct 10-12. Excited that we may get one last go at the old system as well as test the new MM+! I keep checking MDE as well as modifying check-in as others have said but nothing yet.

Poly, Oct. 3-8 for us.

I tested FP+ last September while at AKL and hated it, but I was with a first-timer.

Would love to try it with my seasoned family & get to schedule the rides we hate to wait for (Peter Pan, I'm lookin' at you, kid.)

Pop 10/1 to 10/5. Would be great to test. Helped test last Sept and really enjoyed the parade seating.

We're at AKV Jambo from Oct 4 - 13. I keep checking to see if I can make FP+ selections and get the irritating pop up telling me that I can't. Hopefully we'll hear something soon.
