I am also a TA and the site tells me the same thing

Thanks for the number! I am having the UT issue, so I'll wait it out a bit longer and see what happens. Appreciate it.

I doubt they would get all the resorts up and running by the end of October (some only for a week) and then shut it down for a month or two and launch Jan. 1. You never no though, but I hope not.

I wish CMs would get on the same page or just say I don't know..

The guy I spoke with said emails for nov. will go out next week.. AFTER the rest of the FP+ choice are added

I asked about being able to use both FP- and FP+.. B/c it's still in TESTING we would be able to use both..
Just bring AP and/or key cards to pull FP-..
Nothing about it going LIVE.. :

We check in oct 31st.. But only a few FP+ have been opened up in each park for nov 1st and on... :-(

Here's why I don't believe we will see testing end with a hiatus until a go live.

There is a massive conversion of line entrances and signs converting to FP+. There are attractions which have no legacy FP but have been enabled for FP+... and a few that have even had legacy FP removed to make room for FP+.

The only thing that should stop a go live is a terrible problem... we are hearing that things are getting better every week with fewer problems getting fixed faster.

The only thing left is a load test... and we will see that in October. Listen carefully and watch how it goes!

my 2 cents- so take it for what it's worth- probably not even 2 cents.... lol

i think it's just a little bit of the telephone game. Management gets the shift leaders together and says "testing is being increased with new resorts each weak until october. Testing is not yet known or setup for november"

the leads talk to their groups and some of them take that away that "testing is in october and then it's over". Some take it as "testing is in october so go live must be november". Others take it as "testing in october to be followed with continued testing in november"

Probably the day shift talks a little to the night shift in the break room before shift change and before the night shift can get the speech from their leads. And that adds another layer of conjecture, confusion, whatever.

if you read between the lines and assume the telephone game is going on, all the different stories aren't that far off.

I think you are probably right as well. In regards to all the reports of "no testing in November", i think they just don't want to promise anything one way or another without seeing how October goes first.

It is my understanding that there will still be some fast passes at park rides set aside. Meaning so many will be allowed for fast pass + and a certain amount allowed for walk ups.

Hmmm. Mine showed up right at 60 days. I didn't do check-in yet, but I checked that it was there of course. : ) I wanted to pay off the trip (doing that this afternoon) before checking in. Somehow it seemed backwards otherwise!
Hopefully that link works for you. Let us know.

Just FYI - a little off topic, I know.

I had problems with online check-in. Someone in the November thread on the Countdown form had a link to the old check-in (I think it was mydisneyreservation.com), and I did online check-in there. However, for whatever reason, I could get the normal request screen to pop up. So, a couple of days ago, I went back to the main WDW site and edited my check-in without an issue.

Anyway... we could have an announcement as early as today, it could be as late as early October. Personally, I'm not going to be worried until about October 15, but that's not going to be fair to the people that wouldn't get to customize their bands.

It was there for me on day 60 but gave me an error. I tried about 4 times with no success. I had given it awhile before trying again and when I went back and ever since the option has not been there. I'm going to try the link another poster provided and see if that works.

EDIT: Was able to check in through the website previously provided, thanks smplicty29. When I went through it stated it couldn't put through my room requests though so I called and was advised that it would not accept it because I have already submitted room requests previously. So I'm officially checked in and have confirmation.
