This stinks. There is a Disney Infinity unlock inside the bracelet that we were hoping to get. Can't get the unlock without it.

If you put the band on the portal it will unlock the elusive Disney Dragon that is almost never seen!

I hope the Magic Bands aren't mandatory in the future. I hate wearing a watch or anything on my wrist. Hopefull it always remains an option, and after seeing them in action, and how dopey they look on someones arm, yeah, PLEASE make this just an option and NOT mandatory! .02

I have become friendly with one of the cast members that at this time is only working with the bands and any problems that might arise. (yes, I had problems...lol)
She told me by Nov all the hotels will have the bands

There's been posts int he DVC section from DVC people testing... and I've got a friend going later this week and is on points at BLT & AKV and is testing, I lucked out and have not gotten the request to test when I go in less than 2 weeks. I asked her if she was indeed testing for both resorts and she said yes.

Here's one posting and the OP clearly states they were on points:

TIA

I just got an invitation via UPS to participate in the Magic+ testing. We arrive late Sept. at the BCV and we're staying on our own points. We switch to the BWV later in our stay (all linked on My Disney Experience) and I was able to make FP+ reservations for the entire trip. I don't know if my wristband will unlock our BWV villa or if it will be useful for charging after we leave BCV. But I'm excited to try the bands and schedule our FPs in advance.
