Magic bands
 
Ok can someone give me the how to.
I've read all of the articles that pop up in my FB newsfeed but still have no clue how all of this works...
Will they give my DS2 one? Will our photo pass be on thee?
What is all of this linking stuff?
I have the Disney experience app...and for as many times as I've been to Disney I feel very unexperienced....HELP

I am with you. I have been going to Disney for years and am a DVC member but when it comes to magic bands and FP+ I am so confused. We are going in Dec. (12/20-12/27) staying at BWV. I know we qualify for magic bands but how do I get them? When can I start to make FP+ reservations. Right now I don't have park passes, we were going to buy AP passes when we get there, do I have to have passes to make FP+ reservations? Hope someone can help.

No, they're only for those who would need a ticket. Three years and up.

Not at this time. Might be a feature in the future.

You can link your tickets, dining reservations, and resort reservation so they are all visible using MDE.

You have to log onto My Disney Experience and add your reservation # to your account. Then at about the 30-45 day mark, the MB option should appear.

If you have tickets linked to your MDE account, FP+ becomes available around 60 days out.

Yes.

I will add that I read of one family where at check-in, they gave one to the 2 year old, just for fun. Nothing will be attached to it...but if they have older siblings, no doubt they will want to get in on the fun.

I wouldn't promise anything, but go in optimistic.

We are going in a week and they mailed my two year old a band. I got to pick her color and everything online while picking ours.

We just got back, and our photo pass was in or bands. We were never given a photo pass card. They just started scanning our bands. All the pictures showed up on the mydisneyexperience website.

It's nice not having to reach for your card anymore.

Though this may not apply when you go...we leave 10/31 for the GF...we are DVC members who traded points for a last minute vacation (literally booked in less than six weeks)...I received a mail request that said we were eligible for FP+ a week later and an email request after that and ordered our bracelets! From what I am reading it looks like they are still working out the kinks...That's why it's a test system...Good luck and I hope things work out for you!

I just customized my Magic Bands today and did Fast Pass+ for our first day. :figment:

I am all linked on my disney experience and no mention of magic bands anywhere. We aren't going until March. Is that why I don't see it?

We are going in April and no mention either? We booked a 6 night/7 day ticket but there are no tickets linked to the account? Just wondering when they show up? I know we wre a long way out...

Since I posted last week a few things have happened. I was given access to customize my magic bands on Saturday which was at about day 63 from our trip. Then at day 60 I was able to do online check in and book FP+ events. I did have to call and purchase my APs and then used the voucher to attached to My Disney Experience so I could use FP+. Any issues I had I called DVC members services and they were able to help me or walk me through it. Good luck everyone.

We are going on Nov 15, and just got our MBs last week. My 2 year old received one.

Ours arrived last week and my 22 month old daughter has one.
