Talking Magic Band Testing for November???

Saw September and October, but wanted to see if and when anyone gets anything for November. We will be at Caribbean Beach 11/11 - 11/20. Anyone else going in November and hear from a CM or other sources that they will be Magic Banded?

We are staying at POR Nov. 11-17! I am hoping for Magic Bands. Actually, I think I'll be really sad if we don't get them.

My travel agent, who specializes in Disney, said she will know after her conference in September. We are going in Nov and I want to know too!

I have a room only ressie right now as my mom is getting me tickets through Airmiles.

I will eventually link my ticket once I get it. It will only be a 7 day ticket, which I will upgrade to a 10 day PH once I get to WDW.

Do you think if POFQ gets selected, that when I upgrade my tickets, the other 3 days will come available?

POR is included in the September/October test. So, it is VERY likely that you will have magic bands come November. Get excited!

I'm already excited for my trip in October! We're staying at POR and it has been reported that when we hit our 60 day window in 4 days, magic bands should become available.

I'll be at CSR 11/14-11/22. I've read from a reputable source that they expect full roll out by October. At the very least, I'd expect us to be doing the same testing they are now.

We are within our 60 say window (49 days) and do not have access to MB yet and we are staying in Poly - another resort listed as testing - testing resorts seem to get info about 21 days before their stay, unless something changed in the last 5 minutes.

There has been some reported success of customizing magic bands after doing online check-in for October dates. As of now, there are no fastpass+ to be selected after September 28th.
