I'm not trying to be sarcastic or anything but thinking that .....


At this point, it really isn't even an invitation since everyone is basically being forced to try them. I mean if you don't customize, you receive gray bands like it or not.

We check in Nov 4th and still haven't heard anything about being able to test them. Yes I've customized them and everything, but still nothing official.

I got my invite today and we arrive in 32 days. Online it says I have until the 23rd to customize. I already did. However, we are doing a split stay so, I have one set for one place and another set for our second part of the trip.

Last day to customize was Sunday. Got an email invite Monday and a snail mail invite today. Also received my magic bands today, so my advice is not to wait for invites!!

Yes. The invites still say it is testing and invite you to test. They say you can decide not to test also

I just received an invitation today and my cutoff date was today (had customized the bands several weeks ago thanks to the Disboards!), but have not received them yet... Thinking they should be here in next couple days.

The e-mail I just received stated it was a test several times, and also mentioned it being a test right in the subject of the e-mail.

I have a feeling their communications are a tad delayed.
I was reading the 5:30am email that said band had shipped and while I was reading the email at 9:30am, UPS rang the bell and delivered the bands. Weird!

My last day to customize was yesterday according to MDE and got my email invite yesterday. It had been popping up on MDE however for about a week saying that I could customize and schedule FP+. I, of course, thanks to all of you, customized and scheduled everything a few weeks ago. I think I should get my bands tomorrow or Friday. Oh, and the date to customize on the email invitation was different, but I know others have reported same thing happening to them.

Not sure if this has been discussed, but did everyone see that people with FP+ will no longer have use of FP- after October 27TH?

Just got the invitation to test and we have two days left to customize - I cannot believe that the email came BEFORE the cut-off. Mickey Mail came the night before last.

We check in on Nov 25th and the email's customization date is Nov 14, but the MDE says it is Oct 25th.

I just got my emailed invite too, and we are also checking in on November the 25th.

Our bands had been customized weeks ago...
