I bet if you check it in the morning, it will pop up. It just takes some time. I did all my FP's then went back and mb's were available.

At long last, I have customized my Magic Bands! I did not have to do online check in, and I didn't get an invite. I just kept logging on to the site every few hours until the section turned from Manage to Personalize. Just wanted to let anyone know who is still waiting for theirs! We are at Pop Century Nov. 15.

Sooo...the failed modify check-in thing worked...YAY!!! But I have a question...does anyone know if all those failed attempts to modify check-in actually messed up my online check-in?

Was anyone able to get the mickey and Minnie meet & greet at adventure outpost animal kingdom? Trying to get it for nov 4th but it says it is closed for refurb. I don't see it listed anywhere that it is supposed to go down for refub.

PERSONALIZE MAGICBANDS is now showing! So excited but now to choose colors! Oh, I did not do ONLINE checkin, so I do not think you need to do this to have PERSONALIZE appear.

Chose all of our FP+ lastnight!!! No problems with that at all. Went on this morning and just ordered our MagicBands!!!!! So excited!!!!!!!!!!

I did NOT have to do online check-in to get the MagicBands to show up. We never check-in online.

Good luck to everyone else still waiting!!!!!!! Thank god for these boards or I would not be so ahead of the game.

Yay finally! Glad the rumours about a halt over the busy period weren't true.

I didn't realise settling on a colour would be so hard though. But good old reliable blue it is.

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.
Saturday Nov 16th was being stupid for me to.....and still is. It was grayed out. idk - I had to do it from my phone.

So personalize magic bands came up for me. No checkin and no need to modify anything. Since we got a split stay at AoA and AKL I guess we get two sets of Magic Bands? If both end up shipping can I use either one or do we have to switch out when changing resorts? I wish we could book some FP+ but it's just not meant to be this trip.

So finally decided to join the boards after a long period of lurking. My arrival date is 30th November to POFQ and still can't book FP+. When I select it from the drop down menu it gives the error of 'We're Sorry! The selected date must be within at least one party member's FastPass+ selection window.'

When I go through my itinery, it lets me select the people I want for FP+ but when I hit continue it just refreshes the page. It is a package booked through Disney with tickets and hotel reservation showing. I thought it might be something to do with being more than 60 days before checkin but it appears others have managed it.

Any ideas? Also tried on IE, Firefox and Safari

No. I have not checked in online yet and was able to customize MB's.

I got the same screen to confirm shipping address. I didn't go any further because I had read your post. Now I am afraid to! I really want to pick colours. Could it be because we are in Canada and they aren't shipping them outside of the States? Maybe we don't get to customize anymore, only get the standard grey so they don't have boxes of MBs sitting around the hotel waiting for guests to check in??
