Do you have to have the trip paid off before you can do the mb and fp+? We are at 68 days today.

Have you been able to customize your MB's yet? We were able to customize ours yesterday, but still no FP+'s ... I'll be on-line every day checking! But, I have read here that most people seem to be able to book FP+'s at the 60 day mark and we aren't quite there yet.
Where were you able to customize MB's? I went to all logical places in MDE but no luck.

No, you do not have to have the trip paid off before getting the MB's and fp+. In fact, people have been able to get fp+ before they are able to customize MB's.

We are checking in on Nov 30th and haven't been able to customize MB's yet.

I went on the My Disney Experience online. I noticed the banner had changed. I don't remember the wording now (I was a bit excited at the time! lol). But it was something like, Customize Magic Bands. I clicked it, that was it. Sorry I can't remember exactly the wording or what it looked like. I would just keep looking for it. Also, when I looked on my android phone last night, I couldn't see anything about the MB's, but today it's on my cell phone.

Good luck! I am still waiting for FP+'s.... Hoping I am able to start planning for those soon.

I told her others on here have mentioned CM's manually entering them for them (without having tried it online themselves) and she went into the spiel that DIS is not an official Disney forum, yada yada yada
Anyways, I went ahead and risked it by scanning my paper UT tickets online with my android phone (they only mentioned iphones), and it worked perfectly!
I made sure to have already created profiles for each of my family members, beforehand so you can choose which tickets to link to whom. SO HAPPY it all worked out!! Pixie dust to everyone else! Now to wait on those mb's and fp+'s

Good for you, glad it worked out!!! I will try tonight. I've had the profiles done for a while now just waiting to link my tickets. I'm in Canada so we won't actually get our bands until we arrive which is fine - it'll add to the excitement of check in.

We are doing a split DVC stay...our first check in date is Nov. 30th....as of now I can customize our bands for the first stay...we don't switch resorts until Dec. 7th, so as of now, not coming up....

I just called DVC to ask them about it and they did say, they only release one month for testing at a time...

That being said, I'm thinking the Dec. test will be announced a monthish from now?

I guess we'll just have to wait and see....

I'm glad I found this Dec. thread as the only reason I knew we could customize for our Nov. 30th check in is because of that thread!

Love the DIS!

We will be there 12/2-12/6, staying at POR.
I looked at MDE today, screen looks different than yesterday, or it took me to another page. But still won't let me reserve FP or customize MB.
My 60 days will be here in 7 days, hope I can do something soon.

I think the people going in Dec that can customize MB or get FP+ are those checking in a day in November.
