Anyone else have mb but no fp+? Was able to personalize the mb earlier today. I keep on getting the September date screen when trying to get a fp+ from the web interface and on the smartphone app it says that a valid park admission is required to select a fp. The only thing I can think of is that the system doesn't know I have park admission tickets. We did a magic your way package with a dining pin. The hotel reservation and package does show up under resort hotel reservation but under the tickets and reservations section there is nothing. Is this it? If not any ideas?

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!!
We are checking in on Nov 30th. I assumed that we couldn't get MB's yet, but you are only one day earlier than we are. Maybe I'll play around with it tomorrow.

Just checked MDE and what do ya know.....saw that our MagicBands are now available and was able to customize! Checking in on 11/30/13 at POR. I thought I'd at least have to wait until I did online check in to get the bands. So excited!

Thank you Disers. I was just able to select my fp+ and customize magicbands for our November 2 check-in date. I had no trouble with either process-the magicband customization popped right up. I'm so excited for our upcoming trip!!

After you customize bands do they automatically ship. It says "customization complete". But also says to complete customization by Oct 10. Am I missing the finalize or ship option?

No as far as I know they don't ship until after the last date you have to customize... In your case after Oct 10th.

Yay! Have been able to book my FP+ choices - checking in 10 Nov 13 and customize our magic bands! I didn't get any notification about being chosen for a 'test' (though I did book through Dreams Unlimited so perhaps it went to them and they didn't send it on) so I'm wondering if the system is being completely rolled out in November? Oh well - I'm pretty happy with my selections. It's a fairly quiet time of year I think so hopefully lines won't be too bad

oh and asked her about the BOG FP since I'm still not able to get that, she said at this time its by invitation only ....ok if we don't get the lunch FP since we did snag a dinner ADR!

Finally, after about 7 failed "Modify Check-in"s the magic bands changed to personalize. Now have MBs and FP+ (But no parades or fireworks).

Has anyone had any success getting FP+ for those listed as your "Friends"? We're a party of ten but the two families have two separate reservations. I can get my FPs, but it won't let me select them as well. Any thoughts?

I am checking in at this time too (Nov 11-17), but have not been able to do anything with magic bands on MDE--I also have not been told that I am in the test. Did you just click on the magic bands in MDE and it just show up? I have my reservations linked and was able to make FP+ selections tonight--that is for all days except Sat Nov 16--for some reason it will not allow me to select that date. Anyone else had this happen? Should I just keep checking back to see if that day opens up? Seems weird it would let me pick them for all the other days, including Nov 17.

My family of 9 have 2 reservations and I was able to book them FP+ with us. I have them linked under friends and their reservations are also linked in to my MDE.

Y'all don't stress, parades and fireworks come much later. It's been that way since testing started. Like days before check-in later. We got FP+'s and MB's. Take a moment to say YAY! :-)

I guess this is where I am---what did you do, just keep trying to check-in until it finally worked?
