Do you have to do online check in to be able to be selected for MB and FP+?

You really aren't selected for testing. If you are staying at a testing resort you are eligible. I do believe that you have to do online check in before the system will be available to you.

How do you order MB? Does that link only come if you get email from disney regarding MB testing?

No, you'll see it in your My Disney Experience on the website. Login and go to MDE and you'll see it on the right. When you're actually able to order your MB, it'll say Personalize MBs.

I did not do online checkin either. I'm staying at Pop in October. Mine changed so I could customize at day 57. FP+ selection was the next day. But, timeframe is supposed to be more around 60 days. Mine was when they actually "turned on" testing access for October. So it was a little behind.

Oh, and I have not gotten my testing email or letter yet. I should get it around 30 days....little behind aren't they

I didn't get an email or anything. I just kept checking MDE, and one day I had the option to select FP+ and to customize MB. I think it was at around 59 days, but I'm not certain. When I hit 60 days I started stalking MDE hoping it would open up for me.

So did you go from seeing "Manage Magic Bands" to "Personalize Magic Bands" ?

All this speculation is making my head spin. I wish someone who is starting their stay in November would have some good news for us

If Disney was sure they were going to have all the resorts online by November, the resorts not previously part of the initial testing should have Customize MB for, at the very least, October reservations available now, and they do not. I'm 57 days (and three hours) from my WL check in, and still nothing on MDE. I believe, and have NO confirmation of this, that Disney is waiting to see if the system can handle the increased traffic as it adds new resorts. If your resort does institute MBs, you may not be able to customize them until as late as mid October. My fingers are crossed too, I want a MB, and don't care about the FP+ thing so much.

Maybe I should switch our resort to one that has gone through the testing process to up our chances at using FP+ only kidding

We are staying at BWV and I am a bit surprised that they haven't had their testing yet. And there is not word that they will have testing soon.

Yes, it said Manage Magic Bands first, I think that's just the default for everyone's accounts. Then it changed to Personalize when I could actually customize them for my order. I hope you all get to test. I was stalking mine for October hoping it was going to happen then "poof" they turned on October So keep the faith!

Quoting myself to update that I still have no options today ;-(

POR is in testing phase right now. I guess I just assumed it would carry over into Nov ?????
