    Only if on cash ressie, DVC points not included in current testing, I actually thought it was CR only. Friends we are traveling with (we are here tight now) are using their points for a split stay BLT/AKV and are not included. We are cash AKL and are loving the FP+ and magic bands!

    It sounds like getting the new system to work with the DVC system has been a real pain!

    My understanding is they're not testing at any DVC resort with reservations booked on points.

    Some threads on dvc forums suggested that at least some bcv and one of the akl dvc was also part of test, even on points, and some even were offered the mb and fp+ even if just renting points for those.

    This stinks. There is a Disney Infinity unlock inside the bracelet that we were hoping to get. Can't get the unlock without it.

    If you put the band on the portal it will unlock the elusive Disney Dragon that is almost never seen!
