Nope, no Wishes MSEP or Fantasmic for us yet either Oct 19th- Also no bonus 4th MK FP+ either. Waiting....

I also saw someone at ASMU saying they got to choose their MB & FP+, but I'm at 60 days today, staying there, and even after I did online check in, I don't have access to it ?

oh well, I will still have the normal FP (hope so ), so it does'nt matter I guess,

but still, some posts state that this will all roll out nov. 1st

I know! I saw a similar post about CBR and I've driven myself crazy trying to figure out how to get a silly MB. My husband doesn't even want to hear me talk about it anymore He told me yesterday that I need to stop fixating on this and just enjoy planning the trip. Does he not know me at all?!?!?!?!

It appears that this poster has a split stay (at Pop), so it's probably the reason why he/she was able to have the MBs...

Probably so. I have a split stay between Pop then POFQ and I am able to make FP+ selections for the complete stay.

It appears that the AKL part of our vacation is in magic band territory but the first part, at BLT, is not.

Because of that, I'm a little afraid to add park tickets to our MDE account. Not sure if that will mess things up beyond repair, and not sure that I could even use FP+ for the BLT portion of our stay. It would be great to try out the FP+ reservation system for the duration of our trip but it seems a little risky.

Any thoughts?

Thanks!
I have that with CSR and POR, our CSR dates are greyed out, POR I am able to access, but the tickets are with the CSR package. Both are linked on MDE, but only POR has the MB/FP+ options available. The POR which is just a room only reservation. CSR does not appear to be a test resort, so I am just not going to tinker too much other than make FP+ reservations for the MK day (when at POR) that we can, maybe look into things when we arrive at CSR or something. I'm not too concerned. It still allows us to pick parks for the days within the our POR test window.

Funny, I still have 2 ticket options showing up for cancelled packages from when we were looking into options with FD. They do not show up other than online (not on any other system we have been told), and we've actually been instructed to, and have called, IT - but the tickets are still on there... MDE is still a bit messed up.

Yes it will be, that's the case for us anyway.

However, the non-testers may OR may not get fastpasses for the rides they want because of the double dippers.

I'm staying at ASMusic, Oct. 19 - Oct 25, and I feel really cheated on numerous issues - harder time getting fastpases, may not have a refrigerator in the room, crowded food court due to the close of the other AS food court, etc. I paid for this vacation in March and I feel like I'm being cheated and not getting the vacation that I expected and paid for.

If it were not for the non-refundable airfare, I would just cancel this vacation and try to get my money back from Disney.
I stepped offline for a day or two and catching back up I gotta say I'm dissappointed with all the people hating on Disney/DISer's becasue they are not able to participate in the "double-dipping". You guys have read all the problems too correct? Peoples bands not giving park access and taking hours to clear up, issues scanning to use DP credits, etc? Being a tester is taking the good and the bad. Allowing testers to double-dip is Disneys way of saying thanks for using a new system that is still not perfect and letting us know what you think. I will be testing in Oct and by agreeing to do so I know I am taking the good and the bad. Not just interested in getting a cool new bracelet and possibly getting to wait in line less.

IMHO a "bad" day basking in the magic of Disney is better than a good day at work! I am personally looking forward to whatever unfolds - with or without FP+!
