Do you have to have tickets linked to MDE in order to get a FP+ invite?

I talked with someone that is a CM on another site (I know, take what CM's say with a grain of salt), and they seemed to think that I would get a KTTW card when I went in Nov/Dec. I think they're still not completely done with getting the RFID readers working at table service restaurants, and I would think it would take a bit to work that out.

Yes, FP+ will only let you schedule if you have a valid park ticket.

I am 58 days out and was able to make FP+ today! but still can't customize magic bands. I have not done online check-in, but I see others on here who have not either, and have made bands - seems to be no rhyme or reason. Maybe which resort you're staying at makes a difference? Also, I saw many people mention getting a bonus FP+ at MK for a total of 4, but it did not come up as an option for me, just the usual "pick 3". Anyone else who's getting there's done for Thanksgiving week have 4 come up?

I'm 44 days out today. I didn't check yesterday but the day before I wasn't able to do anything with MBs or FP+.

Today I went in and there it all was. I made my FP+ reservations and customized the bands.

I know I wasn't able to do it at 60 days but maybe 45 days was when they "turned it on" for us, who knows?

I was just checking out the iPhone app and "notifications" is one of the options on the menu there. I don't know about the regular website. That's kind of a pain since now I'll have to explain to my sil that she'll need to get the app. It's been hard enough just getting her to sign up for MDE on the website. Still waiting of that so I can get all of us FP+ together.

Seems weird, since it looks like you're staying at resorts which have done testing. You would still have a couple of weeks to customize your bands, so maybe another week or so and you might be able to customize? I'd say just keep checking.

As for the 4 FP+ at MK, I think that was a "bonus" FP+, and not everyone got one. Looks like that might have been a limited thing they were testing out.

I looked on the MDE website, and if you go to the MDE menu there is a "My Family & Friends" section. You can add people there, and I think that is where you can accept requests also. I did my DW's and mine on the Android and iPhone apps, but that looks like where you would go on the website.

My coworker was able to get in on the website yesterday. When you log in there is a My Disney Experience link in the upper right. Hover over that and notifications should be in there.

I am so upset now. I went ahead and did the online check in. We have a split stay and only one room from each reservation was showing but I thought (was hoping) the other two rooms would show after I finished. Wrong. The link to customize our bands showed up. I was so happy until I went in to customize and only the guests in the rooms that have the online check in have bands. There are two other guests in our party who have tickets linked to their names that have no bands there. I tried using the link that stated if you don't see all of your bands but it came back saying those reservations are already linked. How do I get bands for the guests in those rooms? I am about to pull my hair out here.

First post in the thread here has what has been available thus far, and a priority ranking:

Thanks. I've been trying for a week to get the system to take my ticket order confirmation # but it keeps telling me that it's unable to process my request and that I need to call WDW. My phone took the order # & acknowledged our tickets (that they are AP's). Then it said I had to go to my reservations to link them to my account and when I go there, there's nothing about my tickets. I guess I'm calling WDW tonight.
