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.
Where did you hear that? Most threads I've read say 20-30 days out. 60 would be awesome!!

Also staying at Riverside in November. I have a question. Does anyone know if guests get an invite before their package is paid off? I see someone mention 60 days out, but packages don't have to paid off till 45 days out. Wondering if I should pay off my package early.

I hit my 60 days today for our October trip, and nothing yet. No MB or FP+. I've seen more like 20-30 days out.

We are staying at POP from Nov 17-23 and haven't decided if I want magic bands or not. I think it would be cool to try them but am scared of losing them. I'm a bit of a worrywart.

People are reporting that they are getting traditional KTTW cards as a backup to the Magic Bands. So, even if you misplaced your band, you would still have the old style card to use until you could get the band replaced.

We're hoping they're rolled out by then as well. We are also staying at Caribbean beach November 15-23. DD especially wants them because her birthday is on the 20th. Just 25 days till the 60 day mark!

That's good to know.

We are at POFQ from 17 Nov until 6 Dec and I am really hoping we get to try out the Magic Bands but I don't recall having seen POFQ in any of the testing so far, would this mean the chances of us getting them are slim as this resort has not yet had guest participation? I think I will be secretly upset if we don't get to try them!

I'm watching for November too, and there are two October FP+ threads which I am following.

I haven't seen anything about POFQ yet either, but it appears to me that:

1. The June test resorts were all still being tested in August (plus 2 or 3 new ones)
2. The August test resorts are all still being tested in September (with about half a dozen new ones).
3. And the October FP+ threads have mentioned one or two more resorts being added in October (with All Star Music being one of them, which is of special interest to me since that is where we are staying in November).

So I would keep watching the October threads if I were you, on the idea that whatever new resorts are added in October will probably also still be tested in November.

Plus there could well be some new resorts in November, and I'm sure we'll learn about them on this thread just as soon as anyone knows anything about them.

I now think chances are good that all of the Disney resorts will be rolled out by December, since they still will have all the offsite guests to accommodate, and this whole thing is supposed to be complete by January or so.
