Booking Room only vs package: How it affects My magic Band!
I booked a room only trip yesterday to AOA for an August 2013 trip (yay!) and was curious as to how I could use the MyMagic Band without getting tickets added to make a package (because the cancellation policies are much different!) I was informed by the Disney agent that only guests who had packages could use the MyMagic Band and room only guest still had to use the KTTW card. :sad: I then asked the agent, how long I had until I could change the booking to a "package" by adding tickets so that I could make use of the MyMagic FP+. She said that only plans with dining would be considered a package. :scratchin I thought this was weird as from what I had read from mousesavers and several other sites, that adding tickets to a room only reservation would make it a Magic Your Way package. My questions to you guys are:
(1) am I right about the room + tickets = a package
(2) What are your thoughts about only people with a dining package getting to use MyMagic Bands (as from a financial stand point and a person on a diet ---that unless dining is free, it is not worth it)?
(3) Anybody else know if the agent was mistaken about mymagic bands excluding resort guests without dining plans?
Plus, VP Tom Staggs told the N.Y. Times that all resort guests will get Magic Bands for free.
The person you spoke with was incorrect. A room plus tickets has always been a package without dining. I'm sure that won't change with Magic band.
All indications are that you will be able to add any paper tickets to the magic band based the terms and conditions of the magic band on the website.
I'm waiting on info regarding the magic band/fast pass plus and AP's.
It's going to affect me since I'm the only member of my family with an AP - I like to go often by myself - the others will have paper tickets from undercover tourist to add to the magic band. We are going in June together so maybe it won't affect us on this trip at all.
As far as is the dining plan worth it for someone on a diet - I've never, ever gotten the dining plan because we don't eat the way the dining plan is set up so it's never been worth it for us.
Thanks so much for your help!
