However, if FP+ options are opening up as far out as 11/18, who are they for? "Most" people have an average Disney stay of a week to 10 days or so? Lucky ones, get 2 weeks.

But openings as far out as 11/18, is over two weeks from even 10/31 checkins
Who knows
But I have heard of UK visitors having 3 week long vacations.

Yup, a lot of UK guests go for 3 weeks. Disney even sells a 21 day ticket!

MDE looks different for me today. Still no option to customize magic bands but when I click on make FP+ selections it gve me the screen that the dates were not able to be selected for my party. Crossing fingers that it means we will get something soon. We are 64 days out right now.

Yes, I do. Official checkin date of 11/10 as of right now.

This is my screen as of today, now that I've made my selections. Maybe we will be seeing a 60+10 scenario, I hadn't thought of that. I just assumed that everyone's changed today.

Grr... Staying at CSR and arriving mid November... would have liked to try out the BOG early reservation option.
That test is only through the end of September from what I have read. I have my MB and FP+ picks but have not been able to get BOG for Nov. 3rd.

For those of you not yet eligible to book FP+ or customize MB's, what does your page say when you go to the FP+ section of MDE? Mine says this:

"We're Sorry! The selected date must be within at least one party member's FastPass+ selection window."

Anyone else?

Same. I do show tickets under my reservation, but also nothing in Magic Bands section.

I think it is definitely 60 + 10. I can only see up to 11/10 and several other posters have reported the same thing. Since today would be 60 days out from your check-in date it looks like it might be giving you a window for several days into your stay.

Yesterday it only showed up to 11/9 for me so it is definitely working on a 60 days out time frame.

Funny, those are generally the same two tabs I have open for my internet browser as well...

We are 61 days out for a BWV stay and we have no changes on MDE. Maybe tomorrow? I'm not holding my breath but it would be a really nice surprise

BWV is not one of the testing resorts right now. No resorts are currently testing in November. That may be because...
  • November reservations haven't been loaded yet
  • They are suspending testing in November
  • They are rolling My Magic + out completely in November

If they do continue testing in November BWV may be added...or it may not. If MM+ rolls out completely you will have access to the FP+ system and MBs. Only time will tell.

I hope it is ok to post this under this thread. I think I have something new on my MDE page.
On the right side it shows 5 choices in the top box. They are:
Link Existing Reservations and Tickets
Create Family and Friends List
Manage Magic Bands
Make Fast Pass+ Selections
Make Dining Reservations

Before today I don't remember seeing Create Family and Friends List.
I feel kind of stupid posting this question because I have been stalking my MDE page for weeks and if it has always been there how have I not noticed this? So is this new to the page or have I been oblivious to it?
