    I have something similar, under my reservations my tickets are showing but under the cards and magic bands section it says I have no tickets and need to link them. For a few weeks I kept getting a message pop up every time I logged on telling me about Magic Bands and FP+ and asking me to link my tickets even though they are already linked. It stopped happening a few days ago but now my tickets do not show up anywhere. I think that perhaps they are preparing the accounts for Magic Band customization as when I called saying my tickets were no longer showing and making sure everything was ok the CM said they were expecting the bands to be in use by at least all resort guests by November. Of course I took this with a pinch of salt but I do think they are preparing the MDE site for when the magic bands are rolled out.

    Has already CSR been tested or is it scheduled to be tested in November?

    Jumping in. We are arriving on the 14TH at CBR. Kind of hoping to be selected, but as long as FP- is still running, it really doesn't matter to me. Can't wait to find out though!!!! :coffee: :goodvibes

    I believe it did a test in June. Hopefully the CM the previous poster talked to was right about them being rolled out to all resorts by November. If the current "test" goes well, hoping they roll out to more and more. We just might not get a lot of notice since November is entering the 60 day mark soon.

    There is a post over at WDWMAGIC claiming the following:
    Hopefully that's true!

    And nothing listed in between? Seems kind of random.

    Is it possible all stars music is getting them? I keep getting this page where I see empty boxes where I would put my fast pass plus selections, but when I click on it and I get a message that says "you cannot select fast passes for these dates yet"?

    Probably. It was in the context of a conversation regarding DVC resorts. Allegedly all resorts will be rolled out by October 31.

    If all resorts are rolled out by Oct 31, :yay:, I wonder when they will let us order our bands? We are 72 days away. I check daily to see if I can add our FP+ times but nothing yet. Just the same thing as CalSea12 said, a page that says the dates can't be selected. Hopefully at the 60 day mark. Those of you who reach the 60 day mark soon please keep us posted. In the beginning of my planning 6 months ago I was hoping we wouldn't be using the FP+ system for our trip but now I have made a 180 degree turn and really really hope we can use this on our trip. :dance3: I think it will make our evenings so much more enjoyable.

    I'm am hopeful, but posts on Disney fan forums are little more than speculation without official confirmation. Disney has indicated a desire for a full roll out "early first quarter" which starts October 1. The dates I quoted above were attributed to a DVC member services cast member over at WDWMAGIC.

    You know, I am getting a bit nervous now. I am arriving Nov 2nd and if they are rolling out all the resorts right as I arrive, I am really hoping it is not a giant mess. I am just going to make sure I have paper back ups of reservations with me in case of potential crashes.

    I am crossing my fingers it goes smoothly.

    We will get to test them on our trip in October staying at POR. While there DS & I will renew our APs for the Nov trip at POP. I am hoping we get to sign up for Nov too...since we will be getting there in time for a 4pm start on Nov 8 MVMCP. I'd love to be able to get FP+ for the pre-party period.

    And since DH isn't coming, being able to get TSM ahead of time while trying to get DS signed up for Jedi Training academy would be awesome! Its really tough on the Mommy and Son trips to get both of those in.

    Staying at Fort Wilderness Cabins in mid-November. Hope FP- continues, or this may be our last trip. :scared1:

    Staying mid november at AoA - I have travel companions that decided to stay offsite. they will just have to do regular tix and regular fast passes correct? So we will have to coordinate the fast pass time for them with what I pick if I get to do MB and FP+ correct?

    I'm not positive, but it is my understanding from reading the "I have used FP+" threads that you will be able to alter your FP+ times the day of. You might want to call Disney IT to confirm.

    Sorry I couldn't help more.

    We check in at POR on 11/29. I've seen others in September getting MB and FP+ for their stays at POR, and DW has a friend going in September that is getting it. So I know POR is ready. I'm kind of torn on whether or not I want to get them. I think it will be a lot better for DS and our two DD's to have the MB, but does anyone really know how it's going to work inside the park yet? I haven't seen any word of people being in the park and being able to pick up other FP+ for rides they didn't schedule in advance. I've seen people say they have KTTW cards that they can use to get FP, but nothing about just using the bands. I really don't want to get the MB's if I can't get FP+ in the park to ride the other E ticket rides.
