I must be the only October guest that doesn't want to be part of the test.

Nope, I'm with you. Not only would I not participate in a test if invited, I have no desire to ever use the Magic Bands. I hope that when FP+/MM+ is fully rolled out, RFID cards will still be an option.

Disney has said that use of a MagicBand is optional. RFID cards will be still available if you don't want to use a MagicBand. Off-site guests using MYW tickets will get RFID cards by default, or can optionally purchase MagicBands.

Curious if anyone else has made their lists for when it opens up.
I keep reminding myself I need to do this to get "prepared" for if the FP+ opens up for Oct. Thanks for the reminder, maybe I'll actually do it today

I keep seeing conflicting reports, some sites are reporting till Oct 20, other not till November. Not sure which to believe. Hoping it's Oct 20th.


We are hoping to get the Magic bands and use FastPass+ for our trip, checking in to Pop on Oct 19th. So watching this thread...and all others

We are at Pop with FD package from Oct 19-26. I'm going to do online check-in tomorrow (we will be 60 days out) and I'm curious to see if any new FP+/MB options open up.

We are going Oct 26th-Nov 3rd with a BCV/AKL (Jambo) split stay, so I will definitely be keeping an eye on this thread! We are excited at the possibility to test it out and have a good idea of what FP+ we would pick each day. Keeping my fingers crossed!

nope, there are many of us who are awaiting the 'real' test when it's rolled out to everybody. Right now with limited numbers using it I'm not surprised as to the positive reviews...time will tell. I'd like to be proven wrong.

It'd be a PR nightmare if they required everybody to wear the bands in order to enter the parks. the million $ question is what % of FP, if any, will non MB guests be able to obtain the 'day of' visiting a park.

We are staying at the Poly Sept 28th - Oct 5th. I have a room only for the 28th and separate booking for the 29th-5th. We were able to order two sets of bands, one for just the 28th, and the other set for the rest of the week. We won'yt go to the parks until the 29th of sept so I hope they unlock the FP+ selections soon.

Oct 18-26th at POR for DH and I - just did our 60 day online check in today. Wasn't initially sure how I felt about the whole Magic Bands thing but kinda excited at even the possibility of testing them. If we get picked, we are definitely in! Hope some of us DISers out here get to test them out! After all, who is better qualified than us!

Well, DH and I are going to BLT for 3 nights in October and then we're going with all the inlaws (15 of us in total) to AKV-Kadani in Dec for 5 nights. I'd rather not be part of FP+ for either trip (I am very happy with current FP system). But if it's live to all guests in Dec, then I'd kind of prefer we also get it in Oct (so we'll know the ins and outs for Dec). I suspect we will NOT be able to get it in Oct but will HAVE TO do it in Dec....ggggrrrrrr .
