Oooh! I really really hope so! Although others don't think it's likely.

They either have Magic Bands from a previous stay to have a reservation that starts by 10/31.

You know what? I am going to adopt the same thinking Picktails. I'm with you!

Maybe we just get the answer the CM wants to give us when we call. If they feel like giving us hope they say "sure there is testing in November for all resorts who are already being tested, keep an eye out for your invite" or "sorry no more testing for November or December wait for January for everyone to get it".
I am getting a bit annoyed by all the different answers those of us who have made phone calls are getting. It is not right. The CMs should all have the same answer. Disney knows they are going to get a ton of phone calls about FP+ they should be giving all their CMs the same info therefor we should be hearing the same info. Why don't they know what is happening in November, come on it is September. These people are paid big bucks and they have been working out the kinks for quite a while.
Sorry about all the venting
I am trying to make our plans for each day and feel like I need to be making 2, one for if we get FP+ and one for if we don't. Kind of a pain in the butt!

Ok now I feel better I hope we get info on our MDE soon. I have given up on the CMs.

Read more about my follow-up in this thread http://www.disboards.com/showthread....2#post49540462

I would call IT and have them raise a ticket. let me know how you make out.
Maybe I will call IT back tomorrow just too irritated to deal with the whole mess again today!

I get the same screen with the Sept. dates.

The September Invite thread has been discussing the ghost reservation issue for 4 weeks. There are over 100 pages since the room only/ghost reservation discussion began and hundreds of posts contain some reference to the subject. There have been many posts by DIS Veterans on the September thread (and other threads) disseminating the same information I provided here in a previous post that was deemed inappropriate. The September thread alone has 179 pages, and close to 154,000 views and Ive read every page. Some posters have called the room only/ghost reservation unethical but Ive not seen anyone reference the subject matter as inappropriate and against DIS policy.

There are threads on how to get the FP+ system to give you the bonus fp for MK, how to use FP- and FP+ at the same time (double dipping), how to get multiple FP- during the same time frame using old KTTW cards (triple+ dipping), and how to make a BOG reservation for lunch without having been invited. These are subjects that have only come to light in the past month. Refillable RFID mugs would have to be included in this as well.

Im not saying these subjects do or do not violate a DIS policy. What Im saying is I hope you understand my confusion in hearing today that a room only/ghost reservation is not appropriate when it and other similar subjects are discussed so freely throughout this forum.

I agree!

People who can book FP+ for November fall into 2 categories right now:

1. People who check-in during October at a test resort and their stay goes into November.

2. People checking in during November but who already received bands from a test resort earlier (Aug/Sept/Oct).

Maybe a glimmer of hope for November check-ins. There are now lots of reports that as of today, all resorts (magic band testing and non magic band testing) checking in during October are able to make FP+ selections (no magic bands yet though). Looks like they are starting to open up the system, for all resort guests to get FP+ and Magicbands.

Maybe open up FP+ to everyone in October (maybe give everyone in October who cant customize grey bands) and by November both FP+ and customized MagicBands for all resort guests.

EDIT: It appears all resorts are able to customize MagicBands for October now. There was that glitch where you had to do the check-in again. After they did that, they could customize MagicBands (for resorts like BLT, CSR, BWI, etc.). Looks like a full October 1st rollout. ))

Looks like they are starting to open up the system, especially the FP+.

Maybe open up FP+ to everyone in October (maybe give everyone in October who cant customize grey bands) and by November both FP+ and customized MagicBands for all resort guests.
When October first came on line for the testing resorts there were a lot of reports of FP+ opening first and the MB customization following a bit later. I am guessing that is what is happening here.

In any event, I can't see them adding all of the resorts for the second half of October and then suspending the system in November. I think this bodes well for a full roll out.

Edited to Add...Many other threads have posters reporting that MBs will become available if you go back into on line check in and then click submit/done.

So far I have seen posts from the following new resorts that can do FP+ and MagicBands for October:

BLT, BWI, POFQ, CSR, GFV

I haven't seen anyone yet say they can't book FP+ and Magicbands yet since about 3pm this afternoon (mind you some of them were told they have 24 hrs to customize the bands since they are less then 30 days from check-in.)
