Have not had any problem with Travelocity - yet. Booked our room only reservation for Sep 4 through them and was able to do on-line check-in at 60 days and make any special room requests. Received my Magic Express luggage tags right on schedule and received my Magic Band yesterday. Have another room only reservation for November which was also booked through Travelocity. The reservation showed up automatically on MDE and received confirmation from Magic Express by e-mail two days after making the reservation.

What number are you putting in on MDE? It only shows my Disney reservations, not my Travelocity?

I put the hotel confirmation room # for the hotel. That worked.

Then I put the Will Call confirmation number underneath my ticket voucher barcode.. I called Disney and they said it should work. I don't get it.

We are booked through Travelocity for Sept as well. How do you check in on line, I can't seem to figure it out. I called Disney and was told I can't do anything until 10 days prior to arriving since I booked with Travelocity. I wanted to make a room request also. Thanks.

Really? We can get the magic bands/FP + through Travelocity? I thought that was only for packages booked through Disney? I did get my travelocity hotel only ressie linked on MDE, but how do I do the rest?

Yeah, I booked through another on-line service via my credit card and got the magic bands for the June test period.

Create your account on MDE if you haven't already and then link your reservations. You'll need the Disney confirmation number to do the link (14 characters if I remember correctly) which may NOT be the confirmation number you got from the travel site. If you don't have the Disney confirmation number you'll have to call the travel-site customer service to get it (I had to).

Once your reservations are linked and you're confirmed to be booked at the resorts running the test program you'll have an option on your MDE home page to order the magic bands on the right hand side-bar (under link reservations).

Good Luck!

That I couldn't tell ya for sure.

I think I've read elsewhere on the forum that everybody (including one and two year olds) can get them but they don't have to wear them. (Basically whomever gets listed on your room resservation/has a ticket will get one but I don't know the specifics)

I'm surprised Disney said it would work. I had tickets through Travelocity and a split stay booked. Had to cancel the tickets because they were attached to the second half of my stay and couldn't be used at check-in.
Prior to cancelling, I tried to add them to MDE.
My understanding is the vouchers from Travelocity are not in Disney's system until 2 or 3 days before their use date.

Travelocity let you cancel the tickets? I thought those were non-refundable?

I made a room-only reservation through Travelocity for October & haven't had any problems at all. I was able to pull up my reservation on MDE & I received my Magical Express envelope last week. Between the Disney discount, an additional Travelocity discount, & Ebates, I saved a ton of money!

Long story, but I was offered a refund when they couldn't guarantee me that Disney would issue me the tickets prior to the date on the voucher (which would have been day#3 of our vacation). During all the back and forth, I found a pop-up page that said I had till Sept to cancel the type of tickets I had purchased. Apparently, it is different for every date and type of ticket booked.

Many Disboard members stated they had no problem under circumstances similar to mine but Travelocity and Disney refused to put it in an email that the tickets would be usable. Squeeky wheel I guess. Still waiting for refund to hit my account. Won't consider it resolved until then.

I'm wondering if anyone has been able to get it to work closer to their vacation. I assume Travelocity does this to prevent fraud (so the tickets can't be picked up before you're actually on vacation). I'd be really interested to find out exactly how far out we'll be able to link the tickets...and hopefully do a little Fastpass+ planning.

Maybe someone here has a vacation coming up soon that was booked through Travelocity and will be able to fill the rest of us in.
