1. Trip is paid for.
2. The entire trip was done online thru WDW site-- everything is linked & showing on MDE.
3. I have already checked in online.
Try this, others have reported it worked for them too.
I had to repeat the process about 5-6 times until it worked:

modify check in
get to error message
log out
log back in
check side bar for message "Personalize Magicbands"

I guess I just wanted to check in with the experts to ask: what's up with that? Should my toddler be getting a band as well, or do I need to call Disney and find out if he's been converted to an adult (or at least an older kid) somewhere along the way?

To clarify: I'm okay with him having one - I read somewhere they have a GPS in them that could help should someone get lost so we were actually just planning to stick one of ours on him whenever he was out of the stroller. I mostly just want to make sure we aren't suddenly going to have to come up with extra money for his part of the trip
Yes, he will get one. The bands are meant to be brought back for several years so everyone gets one.

So excited to setup my magicbands and fp+! A trick to try for those who don't see the option is to try the mobile app, a different browser, or clearing temp internet files/cache.

After logging in and out several times, I was able to customize our Magic Bands!!!! So excited!

I cannot make any FP+ reservations, but I am guessing that is because we are not checking in until 11/29 and are still 66 days out.

Cannot wait till our first Christmas trip!!

Thanks for tip to get MB to show up!! Just customized ours for our WLV trip. I'm curious to see if we'll get another set when we move to BLT after our cruise in the middle.
Have to wait until tomorrow to do FP+ once I purchase our passes. Hope there are some times left
I can finally go to sleep now . Will be dreaming of colored bands

Very excited for our fastpasses and bands too!

A question that I am sure has been answered, but too much to look through. When I was making our selections one member of our group shows as under 7 and we do not have an option to pick him when reserving FP+. Does he not need one??

There are four children on my ressie all designated as under 7, but I can select FPs for them all. The only people under 7 who don't need FPs are those under 3, who don't need tickets.
