    Yes, I have customized my bands and done the fast passes. I am going in October and December (the reason I am watching this thread).

    Mine got fixed a few days before I was able to do fast passes. Suddenly one day it showed them as tickets. Two days later I was doing fps and customizing my bands.

    I called on Friday and got transferred to someone in I.T, Ticketing and they indicated they would be fixed. I forgot to ask how long it would take. Ugh, I hate to call back.

    67 days out. Doing DVC at SSR with annual passes. Almost thinking that it's a bit too "non-basic" to work during this period.

    we'll see, fingers crossed.

    Has anyone with a November reservation been able to customize/order bands yet? There are people reporting on the October board that they could order bands prior to 60 days and checking in online.

    the IT CM told me to watch for an email any where from 24 to 48 hours, so if I don't here from them by tomorrow afternoon I will call again!

    Hugely disappointed that I won't be able to do anything until I exchange my AP vouchers. Right now I'll be locked out until I get down to WDW. Going over Thanksgiving and I know everything will be booked up by then. I'll just have FP- to rely on.

    We're Oct 31st - Nov 4th staying at AoA in LM room and was able to customise our MB's yesterday without checking in (not sure how long they have been available for though) how ever our account is really stufft up and has been since first booked. I'm the one who did the booking, it was all done under my name, my credit card etc but the system shows it as being booked by my travel partner and the ONLY way for me to see the reservation is to go under her name or my family; if I look at it with my name I get nothing, it's been SO frustrating the last few months trying to book ADR's (as friend couldn't do it due to work), I have never wanted to throw something at a website as much as I have Disney's in the last 8 months.. What's even crazier is the Disney computers on their end show that I made the booking and everything is in my name :crazy2:

    Interestingly enough, the reservation shows her TWICE (so two Rebecca's instead of Rebecca and Lisa) but when she was customising the MB's it showed both of our names and let her change my name to anything I wanted as well as choose a colour - DME is seriously warped up the wazoo! I have no clue if I'll be able to do ANYTHING with FP+ we shall see in a day or two when we hit the 60 day mark but am praying to the Disney gods above that I can at least be some what helpful with this vacation.

    Even though I don't think I'll be part of the testing (staying at OKW), I did add out tickets from UT last night. It worked perfect! I scanned them in to the app and then checked this morning on MDE and viola....they're there!

    And I did call and talk to a very nice CM last night before I did it. I work in IT so I understand all about "glitches". She told me yes, there are some issues, but that most should be worked out by the time I get there. The main reason I wanted to link the tickets is because I would like to have them on my KTTW and not lug ten cards around (five room keys and five tickets). But I told her I would be more than happy if she could mark my account for Beta testing. We had a good laugh about that.

    She had no idea if the people that have overlapping months will be allowed FP+ or not. But I do feel a bit more confident since I added my tickets to my reservation.

    Please keep your fingers crossed as I just convinced hubby that FP+ was a good thing.

    We arrive 11/14 and to my knowledge can't customize our bands yet or make FP+ reservations. I booked the trip myself through the site, and when I log into MDE and click "Magic Bands and Cards" it keeps telling me to link it. When I type in my confirmation number, it says that it is already linked. Is this what happens for everyone not eligible to do anything yet? When I do become eligible (assuming I will), will it then just change over and allow me to proceed? It's a MYW package I booked and I verified it's all in there correctly. Thanks!

    Many public schools are starting so late bc the Jewish holiday falls the same week as Labor Day. Monday is Labor Day and Thursday and Friday are Jewish holidays.

    Heard through the grapevine that POR starts getting Magic Bands starting on September 3rd. Staying there in mid November so hopefully will get linked and be able to have bands and do FP+.

    That's what I thought. Maybe PP accidentally hit copy+paste.

    finally got all the kids travelling in our party added thanks to IT! the really weird thing is I called three different times and got the same lady each time, she was shocked too :rotfl2:

    she said I'm in the "queue" to get my AP added, they put them in order of arrival dates :rotfl: not even in WDW yet and already in a queue waiting :rotfl:

    We will be at BWV Nov 11-18. Any idea if BW will be part of the FP+ system yet? Did BW already get picked for testing? I sure hope we can use it. I have linked our UT tickets but I haven't been able to do anything beyond that in MDE.
