We check in to BC on Oct 30 but most of our stay is during Nov since we are staying until Nov 9. We were able to select our MBs about 2 weeks ago and did on line check in a few days ago on our 60 day mark and all the FP+ opened up right away. However, after BC, we are moving to AKL for one night (b/c nothing at EPCOT area resort was available), IT person said that as of now nothing for Nov is not determined. She said sometime at the end of Sept, it should open up.

Staying at OKW and yesterday was my 60 day mark. No MB and no FP+ options. I will be doing online check-in, but I am waiting a couple of weeks.

I may give a call to IT later this week (I only work two days); so, maybe they'll give me some good news!

When I do become eligible (assuming I will), will it then just change over and allow me to proceed? It's a MYW package I booked and I verified it's all in there correctly. Thanks!
Hope you got your answers .....and hoping to get some answers to my questions.....

We arrive at the CR on Nov 1st. I went on MDE and tried to add our old tix from 2007......put in all info requested, but the screen went blank. .....heard others had the same issue?

Also.... I don't see "Magic Bands and Cards" listed anywhere. Is it on the drop down list on the left?? I see "reservations" and "tickets and passes"..... But not magic bands....????

Any ideas???

This is what I am seeing on the website, not on one of the apps. If you go to your profile on MDE, Magic Bands and Cards is the second item listed there. I haven't purchased tickets yet, but I do have a card listed there. You can also see My Disney Experience as the second to last item in the drop down list. It is also listed to the right when I am on the page that lists how many days to go and my list of reservations.

We check into Pop on Nov 1. I was able to do online check in but not FP+ or MB. Are there any tips from those that were successful?

We arrive at Beach Club November 29.

In my MDE it lists FastPass + and when I click on it I get "We're sorry. The selected date must be within one person's FatPass+ selection window." Does this mean were already in the test/roll out?

No, it doesn't mean anything yet. I think the FP+ windows might open up closer to our arrival dates....that's what happened for the September and October people.

I am hoping they will have MB rolled out to all resorts and working as intended by November as we are there during Thanksgiving and I feel anything being tested during that week would lead to disaster!! The more I read about the MB and FP+ the more I think it will actually be a wonderful system when it is takes off and that's coming from someone who was not at all hopeful about it when it was first announced! Also, 76 days to go!!!!!

I agree! We'll be there Thanksgiving week also. It's busy but manageable. If half the guests have FP+ access and we don't, I'm concerned we'll be at a disadvantage.

We think the system will be a nice plus, enabling those in our group who don't want to go to rope drop to still enjoy rides later in the day together.

Do you have to do online check in? I wasn't because I have 2 suites booked at AoA and we want to be close to each other - our reservations have travel with designated on them but that doesn't always mean that we will be put close to each other. But if I want to do FP+ and I have to do online check in then I guess if we aren't close we will have to talk to the front desk after the fact.

Can you ask at the front desk where you will be if you are getting there a day before but have a room only reservation (LM) before the suite? Then maybe I won't hold up the line for online check in trying to change things when checking into the suite.

Some people are reporting that MagicBands and FP+ are not dependent upon check in, but some say it's required. I'm hoping to not check in online because we have two families and would like to set up two separate charging privileges and this can only be done at the front desk. We were told not to do the online check in.

BC is part of the test. You should be able to make FP+ selections when you are 60 days out. People at the BC have been reporting that they were able to customize their Magic Bands at approximately 70 days out. I think you are at 88 days out now. We are checking in to WL on Nov 30th and we are 89 days out.

Thanks for your responses. I haven't linked my tickets yet, I guess I need to do that. I'm really not excited about this, we usually get more than 3 FP per day, I just don't know if this is going to fit our touring style.

You can still pull regular fast passes during the test period. They haven't taken that privilege away from the people with Magic Bands yet.
