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've been getting this every once in a while for the last few weeks. Since it doesn't happen all the time there's a small instant of hope, until it's dashed by the pop up.

Who else is going in November and hoping to have MagicBands?

We are checking in Nov. 2 as of right now, but I am thinking about adding on a night or two at AoA before that so that we can go to MNSSHP. I guess I have decided to get them so that I can reserve a BOG lunch and a few rides that we have never rode due to long lines, plus my kids will go wild over the bands especially if we get them at home before our trip. I really hate being limited on FP though As far as I can tell, we don't have the ability to order MB, but we are also at Music which may not be part of the test

By the way, can you check in more than 10 days early now?

Just did online check in today for the first of our hotels, BCV and there was no change in the MB or FP options. I was hoping!

Someone who is staying at the BCV from the end of Oct to early Nov said that they could make FP+ reservations for their Oct dates and for Nov 3rd, but not for Nov 1st and 2nd. They called a CM and was told that they should be able to make FP+ reservations for their Nov dates on Monday. I hope that means that November will be released by then.

I honestly wonder if CMs are just making things up as that makes no sense. I have FP+ made for 11/1 and 11/2. I'm not staying at BCV, but if they can make FP+ selections there shouldn't be certain days that they can't make choices.

I hope so! We are staying at 3 different hotels so I'd like to try it during one of the stays. I don't think testing has happened at the other resorts we'll be at yet. We are only at the BCV 2 nights starting on the 5th.

Agreed. If your trip starts in October please post in the October thread. We are all very interested to find out if anyone with a trip STARTING in NOVEMBER is receiving FP+ and Magic Bands.

According to his ticker.. October 31st (if my math is correct!)
So far, all I have seen is that people who have a check in date in October, can make November selections. Anyone checking in November 1st or after is not able to make any selections.

I will probably be reprimanded for posting here, but I am following both the October and November threads. I check in October 31st and am not able to make any fastpass selections. I keep checking this thread to see if anyone at my resort has been able to, but not that I've seen. Staying at FW cabins.

No reprimand!! Welcome and thanks for letting us know your check in date!

We're all waiting for something....anything to give us an idea if we're going to be able to use Magic Bands and FP+ on our November trips....

Or at least, if you are going to try to "help" by posting here, prominently display your check-in date!

Not sure if this is helpful or not... I am renting BWV points for 11/1-5. I added that reservation# to MDE - it linked just fine. I already have MBs from previous trip to Pop in August.

A couple days ago, I was able to 'Check in Online' and schedule all my FP+s for each day of my trip. However, the selections were limited to only those attractions that currently use FP-. No shows, no fireworks, no character greetings, etc. I scheduled them anyways just because they were there, but if more is offered, I'm sure I will change some things around.

Conversely, I have a reservation for Thanksgiving as well at Riverside - no option for FP+ yet, no option to 'Check in Online' yet.

I actually can schedule FP+ for anytime this month and October, which means feasibly, I could be staying offsite and using my magic band since I already have one with an AP linked. I'm curious when the rest of November will open up - if I'm able to keep FP+ ability, we may stay offsite just to save some $$.
