    Default got our My Disney Experience invite!

    So after logging on last night & playing around with the system I do have to say that I love the idea if it works as good as it seems.
    For those of you that didn't know, after picking your 3 attractions it randomly gives you 4 scenarios that you have to choose from however afterwards you can go back in to each individual fast pass+ reservation & change them to practically whenever you like for return times.
    For example the computer generated times might not have known we were park hopping so we wanted later or earlier return times & we were able to go back in & change them.
    I think its interesting that they have included rides that in the past have never required a fast pass in the network.
    Being part of the test group I'm excited to try it & hopefully give my feedback afterwards

    I think this is what I DON'T like about the new system....If the ride/attraction never needed a FastPass before, then why now? "Let's make 'fake' back-ups at all rides and attractions"....

    Why don't they just come out and say that if you don't have a FastPass/FastPass+ you can't ride or watch....

    When is your trip? Just curious if you got the notice to participate around the 17 days out I've heard of.

    My trip is coming up in about a month so I'm hoping to get to participate!

    That is exciting. I can't wait to hear how it works out for you. I hope I get a chance to test it.

    It was just about 17 days exactly prior to our trip. We are staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge. They give you a date that you need to react to the invite to get the bands in time.

    For anyone interested, the test resorts for Sept so far appear to be BC/YC/BCV, AKL, POR, Poly and AoA. There's also chatter that POP and CR will extend the August testing through September.

    We are visiting 9/3 to 9/8 and staying at POFQ. Is the FP+ invite only? If we don't get an invite, can we still use the regular FP?

    We visited these exact timeframe in Sept 2010 and barely needed to use FP except for maybe Soarin or TSM. Hoping for the same this time.

    Hi, all! I don't recall receiving an "invite", per se. It is possible my DH read/deleted an e-mail that I didn't see. However, at about 20 or so days before trip I went into mobile app for MDE and was surprised to see I could add FP+ to our plans. So I added one trifecta with success. Does this mean we are part of the test, too?

    You should be since you're at POR. Go to Manage Magic Bands and you should be able to pick your colors and so forth.

    Right now POFQ is not part of the testing. You can keep checking MDE online in case they add it. You will still be using regular FP with no problem.

    We are staying at POR and arrive 9/10. I never received an e-mail invite but I too logged on to My Disney Experience today and was able to customize our bands and make Fast Pass+ reservations for multiple days. I even received a confirmation number for the shipping of the bands. My travel agent called Disney directly to confirm that we were in the test period and the CM said that the system should not be working for me if I didn't have an e-mail invite (I was making FP+ reservations as she was on the phone with CM). I guess I'll wait and see if the bands actually do arrive within 10 days. Overall, it was pretty easy to set everything up once I got "the hang" of it.

    I will be staying at POR the second week of November...will they still be part of the testing or are they beta testing in September for that resort and then change it to a different resort?

    At this point it's hard to say. They've only released info through Sept 28. The fact that they're extending the August resorts and adding new one for September leads me to believe they're close to going live so there is a possibility that it will be resort wide by November.

    Probably should start to hear something in the beginning of September. We're staying there next week and I was a little disappointed to hear they ended the testing at BLT in July and didn't extend it.

    We never got an official invite either. Just logged into MDE and when I went to FP+ it allowed me to make reservations. A few days later, when I went to the Magic Bands tab, it asked me to customize our bands. And three days later we received them!
    This was about 24 days out, so perhaps if I'd not noticed on my own that I could select FPs, I may have gotten the email at 17 days out.

    I feel like I'm the only one who didn't get invited! Checking into the Beach Club on 8/31 and no bands, no FP+, nada.

    M not so sure we will even need fast pass+ going right after labor day but it was still exciting to be part of the test group

    Question FastPass+ Confusion

    I just recieved my invite via UPS rather than an email yesterday, which is strange in itself. I have a MyDisneyExperience profile setup and am a DVC member to boot. WDW has my email address in many databases I'm sure.

    I am not happy about a few things here and maybe someone can correct me.

    Only 3 FP+ per day in one park per day. Not great for a family that park hops or has been able to pull more than 3 per day in the past.

    Am I correct in my statement and is anyone else not happy about this revelation?
