We will be there the 23rd through the 30th. Does anyone know if you can get regular fast passes if you have the FP+?

During the test phase yes you can. When it goes live you will not be able to.

For what it's worth...

We are doing a split stay at POR, RO on 9/28 and then a package 9/29-10/12. We have not been officially notified that we are testers, but we were able to customize magic bands about a week ago - and were prompted to customize two sets of magic bands, one for each reservation. They are scheduled to ship on 8/28 and 8/29 (or, one month before each stay).

Until today, I could not schedule FP+. Although it appeared to be an option on MDE, we did not have tickets for the 28th, and from 9/29 on a message would pop up saying there was no availability for FP+ on that date. Today, FP+ opened up at least through 10/12 and we were able to get FP+ for every day of our stay except 9/29 (no availability at AK). Someone on another thread suggested that FP+ were opened up through 10/20.

We did online check-in, which seems to be a prerequisite for customizing magic bands. (We had checked in online at 60 days out, but could not customize the magic bands until we "modified" our online check-in.)

Hope that helps. We've been watching and waiting to make our selections, and are counting down the days until our trip!!

Just wondering what you had to do to "modify" your online checkin.

DH and I are staying at BC 10/18-20, then AKL CL 10/20-24. We've done online checkin for both, and linked our APs to our resort reservations, but we still can't customize magic bands or make FP+ choices. Wondering if I should play around with the online checkin and see if that does anything.

With my luck, we won't even get picked for the testing after all this! DH thinks I'm nuts because I'm obsessing over getting a purple band.

On the MDE website, there was a link that said "modify your online check-in". (Can't find a similar link in the app, though so I'm not sure how to accomplish it that way.) I went in and changed our expected arrival time slightly, but I have read that others were able to customize their magic bands after going through the screens but keeping the information the same.

Purple was not an option for us, but I've read that you can purchase purple covers to go over them in the gift shop. Good luck!

No FP+ yet for me

We are Oct 2-8 POR and I can't make fastpass+ selections. Anyone else with an October check-in date able to select FP+?

From what I'm seeing in both of the October FP+ thread, the only people I've seen able to select MB for a checkin in October are staying at Pop and POR - anyone confirm anything different?

I saw another post somewhere (I think on the DVC boards) where he said that he only had the MB use while doing the testing. He didn't have a KTTW card so therefore he could not use regular FP.

I would say play it by ear. You may or may not have use of regular FP while testing. Each phase of testing will probably phase out the older FP system.

Online check-in is NOT required to customise magicbands! I have customised mine and havent checked in.

As for fastpass+ i have been able to do mine. I am there from sept 26th - oct 17th and just yesterday sept 29th onwards started working.

Any questions just ask.

Magicbands become customisable around 35 days before check-in.

Staying at POR from 10/6-10/12. Bought package last week (room discount with tickets). Did online check in last night. Cannot customize wristbands or make fastpass+ reservations. Just sharing.
