    32 Days out. Checking in at POR on Sept. 20th.
    I just logged into MDE and noticed I have the option for MBs and FP+.

    We are staying at Port Orleans French Q on 9/25-10/8...haven't been able to even select Fast Pass + options or magic band.

    Should we be able to book the fastpass+ even if we aren't in the magic band test?

    My husband and I are going 9/15. I just called Disney 5 minutes ago and switched our reservation from CBR to POR. I can now personalize my magicbands and make FP+ Selections! :cool1:

    I was able to customize and save the bands. It has an address and edit address button. Do you have to do anything else? I found it odd that there was no submit button. Does this seem right? Will we just get an email that they shipped or am I missing something. Thanks.

    I customized ours last week, I think on Thursday, and they still say that they're being customized and will ship soon. I have about 20 days before my trip.

    "CBR needs to get with the program."

    Amen! I am so annoyed that they haven't been part of any testing! I am going September 25 and staying until October 5, oh how I wish I could test the bands!

    We got a letter in the mail and via email inviting us to try the magic bands. We got it last Thursday and we are arriving at Pop on 9/2 and leaving 9/7. I am excited about trying out the new system.

    When you say Contemporary, does that include Bay Lake Tower?

    So I'm staying at the art of animation resort from September 8-13. On my disney experience it let me customize my bands and choose fast pass+ but I've still not recieved any emails:( I customized on Saturday. When I called disney they said they didn't know if my resort was getting them, and it could be a fluke, and to wait due the email. Now I'm nervous:( I really want them!

    I wouldn't worry! From what I've read from others that is pretty typical. Most got to make FP+ and customize MB way before the emails or letters in the mail came to them. Most had their MB at their house before being notified of being a tester. The IT people have said if you're at one of the "testing resorts" then you are included in the test. So no worries! Congrats!!! :thumbsup2

    OH! And :welcome:
