Joining in the October wait...

SO and I just decided to head to WDW for a long weekend October 19-21st. Our only plan is to visit Epcot for Food & Wine festival. We're staying (conveniently) at YC, so there is definitely a possibility we may be invited for our 2 day tickets. Kind of exciting to think that I might be able to FP+ one park over two days without having to walk over and get a pass while enjoying all that is F&W.

I always like allears.net. They seem to have the most up to date and easiest to read list

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.
Cool!!!

Where do you even find FP+ mentioned on MDE? I have looked all over for it and can't find it.

Those two options have been there for everyone for a while. I've not yet seen anyone with an Oct check-in date that's able to customize MagicBands or make FastPass+ selections.

'Manage MagicBands' will change to 'Personalize MagicBands' once you are eligible.

We arrive on the 18th and so far, no go on the Magic Bands.

I "tried" to reserve FP+ and the screen did come up but there was a pop-up message that said we were not within the proper date parametres to choose them yet.

We're late October, 26 - 29th. But staying on DVC points. Any rumors on if DVCers will get to test in October? I know some got to test in August/September. So I'm hoping we get picked. I would test it out. It doesn't make or break my vacation. I'm not a die hard FP user as it is anyway, but it would be nice to schedule some stuff.

You're right. I got all excited for nothing.

So, I am confused. Does requesting and receiving Magic Bands mean that you are in the test group and can use FP+? Or do you have to be chosen to participate in the test group to receive Magic Bands? How will I know if I am chosen? My stay is Pop, Oct 21 thru 25 th, room, ticket and food package. Thanks in advance for your help.

My cousin with be at POP the last week of Sept and he did not get an invite at all but was still able to customize and order his MB and make FP+ selection for his entire stay. We will be at Pop Oct 19-26 with FD package but the MB and FP+ option isn't currently open on my MDE yet. I probably check that silly thing at least 100 times a day, LOL.

We are staying at YC 10/10-10/14. We have tickets already booked through Travelocity, but I can't link them yet on MDE. So, can someone remind me what we will have to do? Is it that we don't get the bands till we get to the resort and can't schedule FPs until then?

If your reservation is eligible for testing, you should still be able to personalize MagicBands and have them shipped. You just can't make FastPass+ selections without having valid park admission linked to MDE.

I think you just answered a question I have. We are staying at AKV on DVC points October 14-17. I was just going to wait and purchase our park passes at check-in. Since I currently don't have any park passes, MDE wouldn't give me the option to do FastPass+, correct?
