Man, I sure hope the railroad will be open then.
The latest news I heard was that the railroad would be closed for the whole month of October.

Online check-in to your resort has not been a requirement to make FP+ reservations or customize MagicBands.

Hope some of us DISers out here get to test them out! After all, who is better qualified than us!
Word is that everyone at POR who checks in Sept 3 and after will be part of the FP+ and MB testing. So far though no dates after September 29 have opened up for FP+ reservations. Those with dates before the 29th have been able to schedule FP and customize MB's. trying to wait patiently for Oct dates to open up....

Nothing yet. There are crossovers like myself (with a 9/28-10/5 stay) that are qualifying, but we are also waiting on FP+ to be released for 9/29 and onward.

We are going those same dates. Already customized magic bands. Waiting on FP+ to open up. I would guess that we will get an invite about 3 weeks before.

Ditto. 39 days out, 8 (and 9 days depending on resort) to customize still before shipping and no FP+ yet though have been repeatedly told 'it will open soon'. Sigh. I can't link my will call ticket so it doesn't matter anyways. LOL

Same here.... we're 40 days out for AKL - Kidani (which has been rumored to be one of the October test locations)... with YES tickets that I don't believe we'll be able to link in advance.

I'm still holding out hope BLT and AKV Kidani will be included in testing 10/6-10/13.

Logged into MDE this afternoon and found out we were selected. I was able to order and customize our bands. We will be at BC Sept 27-Oct. 3. Then moving to Pop from Oct 3-6. Then POFQ Oct. 6 -10. We are AP holders. The system let me make FP+ selections for the 27th and 28th, but that was it. Just wondering if I will be able to make them for the split stay reservations, and also wondering if our AP's are still what we will be using to get into the parks (not the MB)? We go to Disney ALOT, but even this MB stuff has me scratching my head.
