Just customized my Magic Band and booked FastPass+ times

I really wanted to be part of the Magic Band and FastPass+ during my upcoming WDW trip (9/30-10/7) at POFQ. Unfortunately, POFQ is not one of the resorts included So...since I plan on staying off site on 9/29 so I can check in early on 9/30 and get started with my plans, I decided to book a room only reservation at POP on 9/29. I am an AP holder so I don't need a ticket plus I got a room discount. As soon as I booked my room and completed on-line check in I went ahead and made FastPass+ selections for entire stay (9/29-10/7) and customized my Magic Band. Everything worked like clock work. Now all I have to do is countdown the days until I can see how it all will work

Congrats!! I'm really hoping we get them for our October trip! We're staying at Pop, which seems to have a lot of people getting them. Fingers crossed!

It's great to hear you are having a good experience. I am not sure how my experience will be since I am splitting between POP and POFQ. On other forums I have read conflicting reports. I'm hoping that since I have AP my FP+ selections will stay with me when I switch to a "non-testing" resort. Worse case scenario is I have a magical time at WDW the good old fashioned way - without MagicBand and FastPass+

Glad to hear all of the favorable comments on the Magic Bands. A CM friend of mine told me that the comments he has heard are mostly good. We got ours last Friday and we leave in 12 days. We have booked our Fastpass+ attractions and have all of our ADRs, including BOG and the newly refurbished California Grill, set. Only thing now is to get on the plane and get to the Magic!
