We are checking into the Beach Club on 11/2 and we are part of the testing however never got an email invitation.

One day about a month ago I realized that there was an option in MDE that said "Customize Magic Bands" so I did and a few days later they shipped.

I did have a few issues linking my AP, but I was told to make FP+ reservations with DH's ticket and to copy them to mine later.

The whole thing worked beautifully and now we are two weeks away from vacation!!

I know some people are not happy with the new system and others feel there is now an additional layer of stress and planning but I'm really excited for MBs and to be able to try them out. I love the fact that we don't have to rush to rope drop and run to get FPs. For me it makes the trip more relaxed and enjoyable. I can't wait!!

We are not going to a park that day actually. We will get to WDW midday, explore the hotel and boardwalk, swim in SAB if weather permits and then dinner at 1900 Park Fare. One of my favorite things about that restaurant is that it's a great character meal without burning a park ticket. Perfect for arrival day.

Are you doing f&w? I was wondering if any booths will stay open through Monday?

You were absolutely right got an email yesterday from "Disney Destinations" telling me were invited to gee part of the testing. Then today received large envelope in mail with same invitation and instructions to create an account on MDE and customize magic bands (which of course we have already received)!

Ah, thank goodness for the magic of the Dis Boards

Magic Band Question

Somehow my nephew is showing up in both the family member list with a Mickey Mouse icon and also in the Friends list with a Goofy icon. The Mickey icon shows up with his magic band info. But all his fast pass+ selections are attached to the Goofy icon.
Does this make any difference or do I need to call Disney...

Yeah, they definitely need to do some coordinating somewhere. My customize before date was Wednesday. I got the email that my MB had shipped very early AM yesterday (Thursday) and the MB arrived at 10:08 AM Thursday. Today I got the invitation in the mail this morning, followed by an email invitation this afternoon.

ETA Oh, and my Mickey Mail came today, too.

Will probably be end of Oct. They didn't release Octobers until the very end of September.

Not a problem I have read about anyone else having. If no one else chimes in with advice, I would call Disney.

Are you the only member of the family with an MDE account, or do your in-laws have a MDE account, too? We had this kind of crazy problem when I set up an MDE account and made a profile for all the family members in our trip, which included my daughter, her family and my sister. Then my daughter created her own MDE and made profiles for all of her family members. She gave them different icons than I gave them, which was how I could tell which account they came from. It was a mess. Luckily, when I did this back in February, we only had to worry about the messed up ADR's. Doing this wrong with fp+ and MB's would be a problem.

It sounds as if your nephew has two profiles somewhere.

Yes you can select and replace. That way you only change the one you want to swap out for the parade and you don't loose the other two.

Your MBs will still ship, but that does not affect any arrangements made for your tickets. Two separate things, both linked to the MDE page.

Until your park tickets are linked to your MDE account, they won't link to your MBs. Without park tickets your MB is just a room key, essentially. And having your tickets linked to MDE will let you choose FP+ for your trip. If you are going to pick your tickets up at the park or resort, the CM can link them to your MDE account, which links them to your MB. Then you would be able to select your FP+.
