If WL is chosen, will that include the Villas? I am really hoping that it does!!

magicbands

We are staying at POP the first week of September and have received our Magicbands. I was never notified, just happened to notice on My Disney Experience that I could customize them and select Fast Pass +.

Same date we are checking in at POP...ours was the same way. No notifications, just a huge "WOO HOO" by me when I randomly checked and realized we could assign FP+.

They haven sent invites because I think they are slowly updating the servers as to who is getting bands. As the next couple days commence we should hopefully see more hotels and the actual invites.

No. Magicbands will be supplemental but not mandatory. Cards will still be available.

Talking We got magic bands now...

We only have 23 days until our trip to Disney world. We are staying at POP from sept 5-10, 2013. I didn't get an email or anything but I went and checked the magic band link and there it was 3 bands waiting to be customized. I first booked our resort at All Star Sport and asked the CM if they were doing magic bands there all she said was the resorts that currently doing the testing will most likely be the same resort for September. So I switched to POP cause I have been seeing people Instagram pictures of the magic bands and they were staying at POP. The CM also told me that not everyone staying at the Resort will get to try it out and it's like when they run out they run out kind of thing. Hope this helps keep your fingers cross! Hopefully Good new should come soon if you are staying at POP.

Just a FYI..

I was just able to ordered our Magic Bands. We are checking into the CR on Sept. 6 thru 15. No notice or email but was on MDE and click on the magic band link and there was a notice to hurry and order your magic bands now. (and it did say hurry)

I logged in to MDE today and was able to make fastpass + selections, so I called WDW to ask how I can have Fastpass+ selections without a Magic Band and the girl on the phone told me that when I logged out and logged back in that all my fastpass+ reservations would probably be lost and that I may get a notice 17 days before my arrival that they extended the test at Pop. After I made every fastpass+ I wanted, I logged out and logged back in and there were magic bands waiting to be customized so I picked my colors and confirmed my shipping address. I will let you all know when I receive the bands!

I hesitate between all star movie and POP when I made my reservation.. checking sept 7..We decided to go with buzz at all star.. BAD choice, at POP we would probably have magic band and didn'T have to run to get TSM fast pass

I feel your pain. We wavered between AKL and WL and picked WL. Now it seems AKL is getting bands. Too late. Wasn't meant to be I suppose.

Hi Everyone. I haven't been on in a while but our trip is approaching in October so I was interested to hear about the 17 days out. So people aren't being chosen before that? I keep checking like I am going to see something. Does anyone know if there is a change to your Disney experience site? Right now mine just says " Manage magicbands" and then if you click on it says "Whether or not you have bands...blah blah blah" Anyone out there chosen that saw some differences?
