We had double names on the site. One Midge had dining reservations and the other Midge had room reservations with a Magic Band. I could not fix the problem so I called Disney and they were very nice and fixed things. Sunday, we customized our bands and we received them today. I picked the plain, brown box off of the stoop and it was addressed to my husband. I did not know that it was from Disney because the label did not have a Disney return address. My husband opened up the box and I knew what we had!!!!! My hands were quivering as I opened the inner box and saw our bands. Aren't they just too cool?

Glad you got some cool mail from Disney. Did all your FP selections get messed up too?

I don't know if my girls will like Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain or other big rides. Maybe after our first day I can go in and modify to better suit the rides we think they will like.
I think I am just grumpy about not being able to get Fantasmic. I know it will be ok. WE ARE GOING TO DISNEY!!!!
A must FP for us is Peter Pan! That line is carazy long. We opted for it and Storytime with Belle (another loooong line) over the Mountains. Splash is our favorite standby line because it is so cool and refreshing once you are inside.

This would be my advice. Get FP+ for anything that doesn't have a standard FP since you can double dip, you'll be skipping otherwise unskippable lines using FP+.

Not sure if you're still tracking this, but there was another update to the Iphone MDE app this evening.

We are not serious planners, so I did not have any FP plans. I may go in and make some selections, but that may be too much planning for my family.

That is what they told me last week too, that I need to put the new app version. I told them it was already running version 1.4. I uninstalled and reinstalled, still didn't work. They said they would look into it and get back to me. It has been over a week with no updates so looks like I have to call yet again. You would think it would be easy for them to just add the info to the app since it is showing up properly on the website.

Your right, I think everything should be good by only using the website. Just wondering how the app will function with things such as changing FP times. Do your FP+ reservations show up in your app, or because it doesn't have the tickets in the app, it wont show or allow you to change FP+ times.

I just downloaded the update, i saw everything except for the tickets as well. I'm not within my 60 day window yet though...not sure if that has any bearing on the matter. I did see some tickets from a previous trip that would now be outdated though...LOL

Darn. I thought this might be the fix to my tickets showing up on the website, but not on the app, but it still doesn't show up.

I'm insanely excited for the new MB and FP+ options. I'm not convinced it will be a better experience, but I'm ready to give it a whirl. i appreciate the pictures of the MBs because the colors seem different in a lot of the photos I've been seeing. Sometimes the bands in the photos seem really brightly colored and sometimes they're lighter/duller. I'm trying to decide what color I want so I can convince my family to pick different ones than my favorite.

Has anyone had a split stay and gotten their tickets a day early with the magicbands yet? Is it easy to do or our tickets going to end up separate. Just wondering if anyone has done this yet. Thanks!

Not sure if this will help, I did a split stay offsite then on site (currently on day 2 of onsite). I had my tickets already though, from UT. I was able to link those tickets a couple weeks before arriving and customise my band. I used the paper tickets for the off site days with no problem and my bands were at resort for me and working fine with the linked tickets yesterday.

The only issue I'm having is I can't change any of my FP+ selections on the app for some reason. I could do so at the in park kiosk yesterday and concierge was able to do changes last night for me. He thinks it has something to do with me having a gap in my park days between when I was off site and yesterday.
