I checked disneyworld.com this morning before coming here and was able to customize bands and select FastPass+ . WooHoo!!!!! (I'm not even sure how I feel about FastPass+, but as an excessive planner it just gives me another thing to plan.)

We are staying at AoA, Nov 4-12.


So I still need to plan out our days and work with DH on deciding on fastpasses. SIL just sent me her UT tickets that I will need to register for her and make her selections too. I know I am going to run into problems and have lots of questions but for right now I am just excited!


Does anyone know if this is still a test period or are they unfolding everything for Nov? I am just curious if tradition fasspasses will still be available? It will make a difference how I plan our FastPass+.

My plan is to schedule FassPass+ for late in the day. This assumes I can still use traditional fastpass for mid morning returns.
If traditional fastpass is gone I may want to spread my FastPass+ out thru out the day. And I would need to pick some of our favorites that we like to do twice. Hmmm, strategy.

So I really just want to verify with you guys that I won't be able to customize Magic Bands or make Fast Pass+ selections until 60 days out. FYI...we are at 66 days as of today.

Thanks everyone! We are so excited to use this new system!!!
You might be able to personalize your MB tomorrow...I arrive 11/29 and was NOT able to do it yesterday, but today was able to. It is looking like you need to be at 60 days to do FB+

When I click on customize it rakes me to a page to confirm my address. I didn't go any farther than that because DDs are at school and I want them to pick their own colors.

and we are actually checking in 11/29 with a 1 day RO. Package starts 11/30. IT is supposedly working on my ticket issue (DD does not show the 2 day tickets associated with the package. I have 1 set and DH has 2!!). Until that gets fixed, I don't know that I can get her MBs anyway.

Just wish SOMETHING would work.

Is this because it is ap?

No, it isn't because of your APs. We have them as well and are all set.

Try this...open on line check in and go through the process. You will probably get an error message but just ignore it. Go back to the main Disney page and log out of your account. Log back in and you should be able to personalize your bands.

You may have to do this several times. If all else fails you can call IT at (407) 939-7765 (press #2).

1.While I was able to get an FP for Fantasmic reserved seating, nothing popped up for Main Street Lectrical Parade or Illuminations. Assuming these experiences will pop up later in October

I was able to book illuminations prefferred seating with my FP+ selection. Coudl not do Main Street.

Does anyone know if the Pirates of the Carribean ride is still being offered as a FP+? That one did not show as an option for me.

I did not check in online and today I was able to personalize magic bands. Last night I did the Fastpass Plus selections. I do not think online check-in is required even if some people are saying it is.. My sister did not check in online and neither did I and we both did our magic bands.

You can go through the process now with the information you have. Then you can go back in when you know what colors your DDs want. The bands won't ship until 30 days before you arrive.

I logged into MDE last night (back to school night) to show a friend and noticed that I had a FP+ option show up... and then I COMPLETELY FORGOT until this morning.

Have MBs and FP+. My wife's in Rome on business, so going to wait until this weekend to set things up (except a Soarin' FP+ before our Behind the Seeds tour!).

Just customized my MB, too. Finally!

Oh, thanks for that info!

Maybe you know this - in MDE, my AP and my DDs AP show up. DH does not even though I linked it. When the time comes can I still make FP+ reservations for him?
