    Not me and I keep checking :thumbsup2 I know for our September trip that didn't show up for awhile so I am hoping that "surprise" didn't go away. Has anyone been following the October people to know if they are still getting them?

    We arrive 11/29. I just checked and now it says "personalize Magic Bands".

    No FP+ yet though.

    gah, my 60 days isn't until Monday. Not-so-patiently waiting to get in on the action!! So excited to have a few FP's booked for our arrival day since we won't be getting there until the afternoon on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. It will be nice to know we can hit a few rides without waiting in long lines!

    I think it is really important to try to reinforce that nothing is on the band. It is the #1 misunderstanding I have seen people make.

    That said, I was responding to you saying that the ME stuff wasn't "on the band". Your MDE reservation is linked to your MDE profile so it is as much "on the band" as anything else (park tickets, etc.) While those without a ME reservation would likely be accommodated if they showed up at the ME desk, their bands would not give them access simply because they have a resort reservation. You need a ME reservation for the bands to work properly at the ME desk/loading area.

    Nope. I believe that was one of the tests going on in September. I haven't seen anyone mention getting one recently.

    How do you check them? Do you have to pretend to change your fastpass plus selections? Also, how do we check to see if/when Wishes will become available? Since I don't have any fastpass+ scheduled for that time slot, will Wishes even show up for me?

    When we originally purchased our package we were unsure of whether we would be going to a park on our arrival day, but we ended up with an early flight, so we are. I am afraid to call and add a day to our tickets because I am afraid to mess up the fastpasses that I have already set up. Has anyone added an extra day to a ticket and what happened? I would really like to add that day to my tickets so that I can pick fastpasses for it, but I really don't want to screw anything up.

    and nothing yet. I no longer get the "box" when I click on FP+ although I still can't select anything. But no matter how many times I log out/log in, I still can't customize my MBs. :confused3

    I'm right there with you, also arriving the 30th! I was just able to customize our MB's, and although I will keep trying, suspect I too will be up at midnight on Monday booking FP+. Not because it's likely necessary, but because I can! :cool1:

    Now, I'm just mulling over the BOG thing ... not sure I want to risk locking up my MDE account ...

    We are not able to get in yet for FP+ or MBs, but I do have a question for those that are...Can you book FP+ for days not on your reservation?

    We have a 1 night RO reservation the night before we check into a WH Townhouse. Will it limit me to only picking FP+ for that day (or presumably the next) or will I be able to pick FP+ for any days within a window up to the 5 days that I have tickets for?

    My plan is to pick FP+ for the days that we would like to sleep in and try to get attractions such as TSMM at HS and Soarin at Epcot verses the MK days that I know we are going to make RD.

    Logged on this morning and lo and behold - was able to customize my MagicPants AND make Fastpass selections!!!! Our day has arrived :banana:

    A few queries/observations:
    1.While I was able to get an FP for Fantasmic reserved seating, nothing popped up for Main Street Lectrical Parade or Illuminations. Assuming these experiences will pop up later in October?

    2.We're doing a split stay AKL-Yacht. I was asked to customize two sets of Magic Bands for my family. Is this normal? Thought we'd be able to re-use the same set at both resorts...

    3.My infant son also has a band. Is there a different model for very small children?

    Should I be worried that the Disney app on my phone is only listing everything as FP+ for one. It's correctly listed for four on the website.
