So, is Riverside part of an October test or not,as alluded to earlier in this thread? I've not received notification and, as of this morning, am unable to make any FP+ selections. Only 49 days out, so we're within the 60 day window that is touted for FP+.

TIA!
Yes, if you bought your tickets through Disney (via a package), they're already assigned to your MDE account.

Have been watching the test rollout of the Magic Bands and FP+ for Sept and am keen to see if we'll be involved in Oct. We're at the BC from the 4th – 14th Oct. We're from the UK so will let people know if we get the option to order MBs etc. Will keep you posted.

Keep checking MDE and if we r eligable and reservation is linked it will just pop up when it's ready a cast member said they send out the email about 17 days before your arrival day
Thanks for the info. Let us know if FP+ opens for you after September 28!

I know that many people have trouble with the MDE so I am hoping that once October opens up we can all let each other know about it!

FP+ choices

Has anyone planned out what FP+ they would want in each park? I have a short list based on what we like to ride. Some of the headliners like RnRC and TOT are not big hits with all of my family. Those that are interested can opt for single rider or hopefully pull a regular FP.

Curious if anyone else has made their lists for when it opens up.

This is off topic kinda but isn't Peter Pan closed during this week?

We are 49 days out too!

The first two weeks of Oct is within the 60 day window, but FP Plus is not fully rolled out. Right now it is still considered 'testing' so because of that no one has access to Oct FP+ till it is activated. Access does not seem to be 60 days out in general - but when the month opens up it seems to open for everyone within a specific window (I think it was like at 3 weeks, people were able to do FP+ for some Sept folk)

You are not alone - keep in mind this is testing, and not general release to the public...yet. that could change tomorrow, but I only know what is happening as of this very second based on other's posts.

You bet...as soon as someone can do anything in Oct...it will be on the boards.

Tomorrow, testing could be cancelled - you just never know. Communication seems to go out about 17-15 days before, but I have been checking a few times a week to see if my dates in Oct (Poly, Oct 6-13) have opened up.

My wife called Riverside today. They confirmed they would be part of testing in October, but could not confirm whether or not our party would be selected to participate. Said we would get an email if we were chosen to be part of the test group. I was under the impression that, if your resort was chosen, you would automatically be part of the test. Apparently, that is not true.

I'm kind of bummed... As we are staying in the FW cabins and I'm assuming that will be the last place that will offer the magic bands. I tried to book PoR at first, but there weren't any rooms available under free dining.

The railroad is closed in October? Is there a website for what is closed and when?
