From what everyone is saying, it will carry over, but I have heard customization may not be released until 30 days out. When you get to 20 days to go, that's when I would call, if you can stand to wait until then!

When I clicked on "Link Magic Band", it just takes me back to the main linking page with the ticket, resort, and dining page, so I didn't reenter it.

Please stop licking your monitor. It's hard to clean the smudges off, and electrocution sounds painful.

Thank you BwoZoo ! I had not heard that about customization not being released until 30 days out.
I guess I will just have to be patient then. But,I am not so good at patient

I'm going to take off my super excited yet stressed from not knowing hat and put on my IT hat.

The FP+ system and related apps probably have planned updates where they are adding new features or fixing issues found during past rounds of testing. A release has a technical aspect (updating the code) as well as support and operations impacts (requiring training of cast members). So my guess is if they are going to open up November it will probably be after "the next release". I did not read the past month threads but my guess is that for the October arrivals, no one had access until some magic day and then a population of folks had FP+ and new folks each day after that as their arrival date rolled into the window of eligibility- looks like in the past it's been 60-70 days from arrival but given how many folks they ramped up in Sept they are probably getting a ton of last minute fixes that need to be developed and tested.

So we wait for the next software release to roll out. One morning I'll wake up, look on this board (I'm Pacific time - Silicon Valley Geek) and like magic we'll have a flurry of Nov arrivals saying they have access. At least that's my theory.

I like your theory!

I like your theory too. What you describe sounds exactly like what happened for October.

You're killing me! I am at AoA starting November 3rd. Locked that date in the day I got great air fare. Alas, since then I have found out it rules out Free dining, and delays news on MB/FP+. To top it off the latest increment of CM Dining only has been announced thru October 26. So I am in super wait-and-see mode

You're likely right. I wouldn't be surprised to see something around the first of October. Of course that's not going to stop me from checking multiple times everyday from now until either it's available or my plane lands in Orlando.

I wish people checking-in in October would stop posting in this thread and getting me excited.

Is anyone else getting the option to pick FP+ selections but then having a window pop up saying something like 'We're sorry, you are not within your FP+ selection window'? I was getting something similar before but the pop up was saying an error had occurred and then it was fixed and not letting me see anything to do with FP+ but now it is giving me the FP+ window message. Wishful thinking perhaps but could this be a good sign???

I just wanted to add that we are staying at POFQ which is not currently participating in the test so the FP+ being linked to a reservation for there could be promising!

I have also gotten this and was hoping it means we are that much closer! Fingers crossed

I've been getting this for a couple of weeks now. I didn't think it meant anything.

We are a split stay from oct 25th-Nov 1st at GF and then Nov 1st-4th POFQ I rung to ask if I moved over the AOA for the 2nd stay would I get selected for the test and was told the test finished for AOA on Oct 31st and not to move resorts as my current booking for POFQ could still be selected for testing. The CM went on to say it was also still possible my Oct stay at GF could still get selected for testing if they rolled out the next phase in time. I have no idea if we will get picked yet for either stay but we are dying to try the magic bands so we can have one to use on our Disney Infinity game!
