My pics are to important to me..

It will be regular PP+ cards for us until I hear ALL the glitches work out..

We are going at the end of October and I already have my magic bands! In regards to PP+, I was told by a CM when I called for clarification that although magic bands will be able to be used for regular photopass (if you add them), because you need the special card on a lanyard to differentiate you as a someone with photopass+, that you will always need the card for that purpose. To get your dining and ride pics etc... Does that make sense? You need the photopass+ lanyard basically so CM know that you have it.

You're welcome. As far as the DDP, all of your credits are pooled so they should only have to scan one band. The same was true when KTTW cards were use. Disclaimer: We never use the DDP so perhaps another poster who does can verify the above.

Eventually you will be able to use a card for the FP+s, allowing those guests who don't want to wear the bands to opt out. During testing, however, you need to be checking into a testing resort to get access to the bands and FP+. I know it stinks, but technically you are checking into a non-testing resort since it goes live the next day. Is there any way you could cancel your first night and book it somewhere else that is testing (Pop Century, Port Orleans Riverside, Art of Animation, etc.) and then check into POFQ on the 30th? Or perhaps you could move your stay completely to POR since they are testing. Just a couple of options. The Legacy (old, paper ticket style) FP machines are still in the parks so you will still be able to get FPs on your trip.
Yea I know.... And since we leave in 4 days and are driving, we will have to go without this trip. Don't want to go through all the hassle of canceling or moving a day.

Help with understanding if I "Linked" my tickets right

Hi all,

I tried posting this question on another thread without any luck....

I am able see my UCT purchase tickets under the My Reservations section of MDE but not under the Magic Bands and Cards.... Are my tickets linked?

We are staying at BLT with rented DVC points and want to give myself every opportunity to get our MAgic Bands before our Nov 16th trip.

Have I done everything I can?

Thanks!

Go to the main Disney page and hover your mouse over the My Disney Experience tab on the top right. Select My Reservations from the drop down menu. If you see your passes under the Tickets section you are all set.

BTW, you should be able to personalize your bands and select FP+s now. They opened access to the system to November check ins this evening.

I'm actually on hold with Disney to fix my linked UCT tickets!

I checked and I can customize the Magic Bands. I'm doing a split stay, 1 night at CSR and 6 at AKL. It gives me the option to get 2 sets? Do i?

If I get 1 set, when we switch resorts will they just add the room keys to the band?

Can we add our tickets to the Magic bands at the resort?
Thank you all, back to reading through to see if I missed all this!

Not sure if this has been asked before, but....We are staying offsite a few days before we check into AKV. We were planning on going to Epcot during one of those offsite day. Can we use our magic bands with our linked tickets before we check into AKV?

Nothing is stored on the bands. They contain a chip that "talks" to Disney's database to access the I formation in your MDE profile. Therefore, any band that is programmed for you access the same information in your profile. Your two bands should each work for your entire trip. I say should because the system is still new and there are some glitches. You will want to bring both sets of bands with you, just in case.

As for using the bands early, I know you can with an AP, but I am not sure about regular tickets. I would assume they would work. You will not be able to schedule FP+s for those days in advance, but you will be able to use the kiosks in the parks each day.

I would definitely bring both sets with you for this trip. There have been a few glitches reported and having them would make any issue easier to fix. The odds are that you will not need them, but better to be safe than sorry.

FYI, we have chosen a different color each time we get a new set of bands. That way, since they will work interchangeably, we can choose which color we want on any given day.

Have a great trip!

Question Linking reservations with friends

I made a separate post but maybe someone here knows-

How do I link up our reservations with our friends who also have MYW packages? I added all of their names to my friends list but only one person is showing up when i go to add the attractions.
I have their reservation number, can't I put that in somewhere?

Okay...step by step...

1. Send an invitation to the person who manages the other account.
2. Once he/she accepts your invitation go to Add a Guest and click on Select from Mutual Friends
3. From the drop down menu, click on the guest you linked to.
4. The rest of the people in their account should then load.
5. Do this for every one of the people in the other account.
6. Once this is done you should see the specific icon (Tinkerbell, Goofy, etc.) that your friend chose for each person in his/her group.
7. If, after this process, your friend cannot see your family he/she should to the above to add your family to their profile

I've never had to do step 7. After I've invited someone and they've accepted, I was included in their Family & Friends list.
