We received ours on Wednesday for our November trip. Then yesterday we received an email and a letter inviting us to go online and order MagicBands. Looks like Disney is still a bit behind.

What's the best way to check for FP+ for parades and fireworks? Just keep logging in and acting like I'm going to schedule all new fast passes for the day and look for parade in the list? If I don't see it yet, hit cancel? Is there any way to see which FP+ are being offered without going through all that?

where does the actual invite come from to participate in FP+ and magic bands? Do u get an email? I do have something on MDE saying something about making day by day plans before you arrive ......it has that lady from the Incredibles who mends the suit saying "yes Darling, but first some training......." Does that mean I am getting magic bands for my Nov. 29t arrival? so confused

All guests checking into a Disney World property resort in November get the MBs. You should be able to personalize through MDE site. Some have had to do online check in to get 'personalize' to show up.

I check for fireworks and parades regularly. I read that you have to cancel and replace to get the fireworks and parade options. So far we have IllumiNations and Fantasmic! but none from the Magic Kingdom. Hoping soon! Since they just put in the revised hours for November, I'm hoping the entertainment options will be available soon.

Question

So I have to completely cancel my fast passes and then choose new ones - I can't click "Select and Replace" to redo my fast passes? I'm not seeing illuminations on either of our epcot nights doing it that way.

Thanks to everyone here for all the guidance on trip planning!

The invite will come via email but don't wait on it. If you are staying at any Disney resort after Oct 26 then you will be getting magic bands. The video is in regard to the MDE and introduces you to Fastpass+ and other things you can do with MDE.

I personally would not cancel & rebook new fast passes, especially if you already have the ones that you want & the times that you want.

Fireworks & parades do not really need fast passes in my opinion, unless you are going during a very busy time of the year.

There are plenty of places to stake out a spot for fireworks or parades, I would not use a fast pass for either of those during a non-busy time of year.

I get it but IMO Illuminations would be great for the 3rd choice right now I've only chosen Soarin and TT I let Disney pick the 3rd one for now we are going Nov 1-11 and I haven't seen any parades or night shows in FP+ except F!

You should be able to select your FP+ now, if you are getting MBs. Have you tried selecting them from MDE page? Are your park tickets linked to your MDE? Those are required for FP+ selection.
