We will be checking into the WL on Nov 30th and really hope we'll be getting MBs and FP+.

Still no love from fastpass+. Any lucky November travelers (whose trip begins in November)?

I was told by a resort center CM on the phone the other day that there are currently no plans to "test" beyond Oct 31.
He said in November and December MBs would be sent to AP holders and DVC members for use and the Jan 1 is the current projected full roll out date.

Of course that might be the plan right now but we all know plans can change any minute with Disney.
I'm going in mid November and he said I would have one because I am an AP holder.

We'll see....

I don't think they will stop testing or stop adding resorts to the test over November/December. A lot of guests (including myself) have been told by CMs that there will be more resorts added for November and a few days ago one even told me they were hoping to have all resorts ready for testing and loaded into their systems (so FP+ available for all onsite guests) by the end of October. Yes, I have taken this with a pinch of salt but from what others are saying CMs are going out of their way to ensure guests know about the MDE website and app and advising people to make accounts if they haven't already. I would say that sounds like they are at least expecting to get it rolled out to all onsite guests sooner rather than later.

This happened to me. When I called to make my final payment the CM made it a point to ask if I had heard about MDE and told me to download the app to my phone so that I'd be ready to book my fastpasses in advance. When I asked him when that was going to start he said, "All I can tell you is that its coming soon, so they want everyone to be aware of it."

does final payment need to be received for magic your way package?

we arrive at AKL Nov 8, then move to the Poly Nov 11. No options for FP+ or magic bands. We just booked a week ago and have not yet hit our date to make final payment on the Disney package although we do see the hotel reservations & tickets in the my Disney experience site and app. Has anyone been able to customize magic bands prior to making final payment?

I don't think any of us that have check in dates after October 31st have been able to customize bands or make FP+ selections yet regardless of final payment. Maybe ask on the October or September magicband thread, they might know.

When I called last weekend for another matter just after I did the online checkin, I was transferred to an IT person and after they had corrected my issue I asked about FB+ and was told that for now there was no FB+ & MB being set up for my resort (CSR) for the dates we are there (Nov 2-11) and in fact there was no update for any other resorts in November. Then the IT person mentioned that they were still attempting to get in contact with people for October stays. Near the end of the call she said to keep an eye out for an email at the 30 mark. When I asked what it would be about all she said was to watch for an email around then with an update. Sounded kinda specific to me. Not sure if its just something they say to make us DIS'ers happy or not. Fingers crossed!

Whether you have a MagicBand wristband or touch to enter admission card—or both—you are seamlessly connected to your reservations, park admission and other plans and purchases. Learn More

Don't See All Your MagicBands and Cards? Unless you have an order currently in process, you may still need to link them to your account.
Link a MagicBand or Card.

Thanks for this info. Have you tried typing your confirmation number in that section to link it? When I do that, it says it's already linked to my account (lists my full name as opposed to acknowledging the fact that I am logged in...) so I am curious if it says its already linked for other people as well?

I've spoken with 2 CM's. One CM mentioned last week that the roll out for everyone would be November. Yesterday i was informed nothing for the months of November and December.

We'll be staying at Coronado Springs.

Now, i see on this thread that AP's and DVC may get the bands in November and December.

We're upgrading our tickets to DVC AP when there mid November. Wonder what would happen then?

Grr... I hate uncertainty! LOL

Quick online checkin question. I have read different posts about a certain hour, thinking it is in the evening when they can checkin online? Assuming it is on the 60 day cutoff right? Do you have to wait until evening?

No, you don't have to wait until evening. They might be in a different time zone.

I still haven't done my online check-in because I want to make sure my request is in the system (need to be near the main building due to a disability). But I'll do it soon.

Online check-in done last night as soon as I got to the 60 day mark. I had issues entering a credit card to reflect a Canadian billing address but I managed to skip that part and go on to finish the check-in.

Subscribing. We check-in 11/11 at Caribbean Beach. Has anyone heard anything about Caribbean Beach? My hubby said he read someplace about the rumor being that all resorts would be using MB by November. I will see if I can find the source. Fingers crossed for all of us excited to get MB's

I could customize my MB at 67 days out (maybe earlier but I wasn't looking) and choose FP+ at 60 days out. No final payment made. Arriving at Pop 10/31.
