Count me in on hoping for this too! Even if my resort (Pop) is in testing in December, I'm not going to be a part of it. My group of of three consists of one AP holder, one person with a paper non-expiring ticket with 8 days left purchased last January, and one person with a paper non-expiring ticket with 2 days left purchased 3 years ago. This person needs to buy another day or two to finish off the trip once we get there. This sounds like a nightmare to coordinate on the MDE website, so we will be using Legacy FP, sadly for probably the last time

I've ordered my AP voucher and the 10 day PH tickets for the family from Disney, but am waiting on the delivery to link them into the system. Nervous about the whole thing and a bit bummed that I felt the need to order direct from Disney to avoid as many glitches as possible. I still don't feel like I have a clear picture of how the system works, let alone how to maximize the benefit...and I am already stressed out over the trip being Christmas week. Hopefully, it will all become clear once I can get into the system and all will be well.

We check into AoA on 12/13 and BWV on the 14th. We are buying our tickets this weekend so I'm hoping we have them before they start inviting December guests!

Count us in. We check into Pop on Dec 8th and would really like to try the FP+. We may go back in summer but will stay off site since we will be bringing the whole family and not just DH and I.

What changes on the website to let you know that you get to try FP+? I'm not sure where to look.

Thanks. Just 74 days away!!

Count me in on the Dec wait.

I really hope FP+ is running New Years week. It will make three teen girls happy that their mother will not be whispering in the ear at 6am to get up to make MK opening (coming from the west coast it really takes a toll on my late night teens).

The 'Manage MagicBands' option changes to 'Personalize MagicBands' while you have an open MagicBand order.

My first post on DISboards !

Have been reading them a while and waiting for the December MB thread. Arriving 12/3 and staying at SSR. Linked everything into MDE. From what I read SSR has not been a part of "testing" phase but hoping that by December all resorts will be active. Is that correct? Also, I assume that I should pay off the remainder of my account before the 60 day mark ?

We arrive December 7th - December 12th to Grand Floridian. We have the trip already paid off. We have AP's and I have them uploaded into our MDE on the computer and my phone app. It says something about MB's and FP+ on our home computer MDE but not on my phone app...But I can't do anything with them yet. Can you say yes to MB but not FP+?

I am curious about something.... if you are not notified that you are being assigned a MB and you are to use the FP+ system until 60 days prior, how would you make your FP+ reservations when that window opens at 60 days as well?

We check in Nov. 30 for 1 night at Art of Animation.

We check in Dec. 1 for 7 nights at Saratoga Springs.

For the first time today I was able to customize our Magic Bands for the 1 night at AoA. I am still waiting for the Dec. 1st reservation to kick in to customize the second set of MB's.

Also, a side note, I'm not able to make any FastPass+ reservations yet, but from what I am reading, those start 60 days out and we're not there yet.

I can't wait for the bulk of our trip to be able to get MB's and FP+'s!

JohnCat!

Yes, all resorts will be active by then but Disney is still saying they are in "Testing Phase". Don't know when they will call it officially all online.

No, I you don't need to have your reservation paid in full by the 60 day mark. Nothing changes from normal reservations as far as the payments are concerned.

We'll be there for NYE!! This is our first time during the holiday. Scared about how busy it will be but I want to see the decorations. I didn't get our tickets yet. Should I get them before the 60 day window? Or does it matter. I think I want to get AP since we might go again in April. Do you get a MB and a card? How do people double dip without a card/ticket? So confused! I trying to soak up all this information. I've been to Disney 8 times in the last 7 years and I feel like a newbie.

Thanks TXTink ! I'll be arriving at SSR 2 days after you so I'll let you know if I see something positive. Hope you will do the same.

We're approaching our 60 day mark as well. Arriving on Dec 8th at Jambo House. I haven't taken the plunge yet to link our UT tickets, mostly because I'm trying to let them work out as many bugs as they can before I do so. From what I've read lately, we should be okay linking our tix since we have the paper version. I might try tonight as I'm very anxious to see them appear. Fingers crossed it works.
