Good good. Sounds like Orbitz doesn't have the same problem that Expedia/hotels.com (same company) has.

My MagicBands have been shipped! I should be receiving them on Tuesday, which will be in plenty of time for leaving Sunday. Looking forward to receiving them.

multiple tickets on band

We have leftover days on non-expiring tickets already on our MagicBand accounts plus we just added 4 day expiring tickets. We want to save the non-expiring tickets for those trips where we are only going to be at Disney for a day. How do we "choose" which set of tickets to be active on the magic bands?

Thanks,
Kate

You stop at Guest Services at the entrance to any park and ask them to set the priority on the tickets on your account. They can make it so the 4 day expiring tickets are higher priority.

Using Magicbands before check in

We are flying into MCO on 3/18 at 10 am and have a car rental. Our room will not be ready until sometime after 4pm. after retrieving luggage would like to head straight to AK with our bands. Question is, do we need to check in first? The park is closing at 7 that day and we were going to head over to Boardwalk afterwards.

I know we probably will not be able to charge anything and I am fine with that. We have 4 day tickets already attached to our reservation and bands.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

As long as you don't have a dining plan you need activated, you can head straight to a park if you wish. However, we have generally had good luck with our room being ready early, YMMV.

Just a quick question I'm hoping someone can answer for me. I have always had a my disney experience account & I just added/managed my husband and daughter. Recently we made my husband his own account so now when I sign into mine I only see mine and my daughters magicbands that can be customized. I'm assuming now on future trips my husband will have to sign into his account to customize his bands? & also will the magic bands now ship in different boxes (mine & my daughters, and his alone) or do they ship out based on your reservation number? Thanks a bunch in advance!

This question may already have been answered, but if we leave before the MBs arrive at home will they provide with them at the resort when we check in? Or do we have to buy new ones? TIA.

Anyone staying on property gets them free. I'm pretty sure you would be able to get colored ones (as opposed to grey ones) , but obviously they wouldn't be personalized with your names.

IF you have your cards (with rf chip) linked to a magic band can you use either one you choose at the parks?
