Did you also get only Epcot or could you do other parks as well?
Yes, just Epcot for us as well.

Just spoke to someone in tech support. If I had chosen the "will call" option for my tickets, I would have been able to link the tickets using the will call confirmation number. As it stands now, I have to wait until I receive my tickets (about fourteen days from now) then go to MDE and enter the number on the back of the actual tickets to link them on MDE. Only then will I be able to do FP+.

So, long story short, from what I can understand, if you plan on purchasing park tickets via MDE, choose the will call option and then you will be able to link your tickets and get FP without having to wait for the actual tickets in the mail. Hope that makes sense!

I'm in the same boat as you, Katelly. I missed that bit of info, too. The upside is that patience is all that's required, not a call to IT. sjs314, good luck on getting your problems with your tickets fixed (if you haven't already - this pesky job thingy makes it hard for me to keep up here. :/ ).

Anxiety!!!

New on disboards! Hello, everyone!

Me and partner checking in AKL dec 1st for a week stay!

No magic bands on MDE yet!

Waiting and hoping that being an international customer does not reflect on anything... except for not having the bands shipped... of course I just expect to grab them when I check in, but we would love to choose our colors! And to have our FP+, of course!

Does anyone know what happens to guests from overseas? (I have booked my package in the Disney US website)

We are in Canada and have been able to customize our MB's (no FP+ yet, Tuesday is our 60 day mark), so being an international customer shouldn't affect anything for you (other an your MB's won't ship to you, but you'll get them at your resort). The issue is likely your check-in date. November arrivals have just been loaded into the system this week. They probably haven't started adding December yet.

p.s. Welcome to the DIS!

Today I logged onto MDE and it said to customize my bands and there is a screen to choose my FP+. I had not looked into any of the FP+ stuff, waiting to see if I would get it. Now to figure it out!

Anyone else having trouble scheduling FP+ on a random day of your trip? We are going November 15-23, I can book FP+ everyday but Nov 20. That day is completely grayed out and I can't select anything. Weird thing though, I am able to access it on the MDE phone app from my phone. Called Disney today to see if I could have the website fixed and the CM acted like I was being a pain. Came right out and said there is nothing he could do and that's it. I would like to book my FP+ on the website instead of my phone. The app takes so long and is not as easy to use as the website. Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue and if they were able to get a fix.

I had that problem for 11/21...I kept sliding the dates back and forth and it eventually came up. Weird!

Thanks! I tried that and it worked. If I slide all the way to the left and then to the right until I get the 20th, it showed up. That is weird!!

Very common problem

Two workarounds:
1) App still works on the greyed out day.
2) Go to my itinerary on the webpage. Go to the problem day. Hover over "add plans" on the upper left. Choose select FP+. This way still works.

Hope that helps.

We arrive on 11/30, and customized our bands. We are not able to book our FP+ yet. How far out can I do that?
