Will MBs sync automatically if changes to FP+ are made?

If, after getting the MBs, we change our FP+ times, will the MBs sync automatically? What if I add Photo Pass after I get the bands?

Thanks.

We made FP changes when at Disney during our week and everything was updated on our MBs. I would imagine too that pictures would get added (but if you purchase MM, I think it takes 3 days to apply...no?)
It's all attached to your MDE account so if you see it online, it would be on your MB.

Nothing is on the bands; the bands are just a way to access what's on your MDE account. If something is on your MDE account, your Magic Bands will be able to access it.

So I have a question and I apologize if it's been answered before.

I am staying onsite, I've got a package with a dining plan and my question is, if I eat at any given quick service restaurant does the system know enough to burn my dining plan credits instead of charging me by itself, or do I need to ask to use the credits specifically?

Thanks!

I would think you always have to tell them before they ring you up, how exactly you want to pay. I mean, that was true before Magic Bands as well. I'm sure they have to press a different button on the cash register (do they still call em that?) based on how you're paying.

Because, just as with the Key to the World card, you have the option of having your credit/debit card tied to your account when you pay things, you have to tell who is ringing you up if you a. Are Using a Dining Credit b. Charging to your Room c. Using your Credit/Debit Card on file.

Otherwise, how would they know? Same with snack credits, if you have those - you tell them you're using a snack credit. You can't just wave your Magic Band in front of them and expect them to magically know what your intentions are after all - the Disney Magic is powerful but they haven't conquered mind reading yet!

Sorry if this has been asked and answered before, there are so many posts and the search didn't find anything for this question.


So I have 3 Magic Bands assigned for each ticket for A, E, and M. I also have 2 coming for a resort reservation for A and E. M will not be part of this trip. My friend (P) is coming for a day or two, so could I hand M's band to P and use the fast passes assigned to M? If I hand M's band or the resort bands for A and E to P, will they be linked to my memory maker?

Arrival - Activation

When we show up with our Magic Bands for the first time (tickets are already associated with the bands online), do I need to go to any booth to "activate" them? Or can I just head right in through the turnstyles?

Is this still true? I'm assuming it is but will explain anyway.

Apparently I either hit a fluke time or did something wrong, and instead of putting in a birthdate for DS I put an age. So he was continuing to show as 8 after he was 9. I think it was in January that I put in a new DS and this time used a birthdate. So his age will change appropriately.

I linked our hotel stay to "that" son. So this MB, should it ever ship, will be on "that" son's account.

Alas, all the others are on the "other" son's profile. (no one but me has an actual account, they are all just names on my MDE account)

So that means he won't be able to use those others MBs, doesn't it?

Maybe I could call and have them switch the son on this reservation to the other one?

(memories of our first WDW DCV booking, where CMs kept adding sons to my account with variations of his name...by the time we were there we had 8 actual people and 10 names on the room, 3 of which were my ONE kid, and it didn't appear to be a problem that we were over room capacity in the system, which was odd)

She was easily the friendliest and most helpful CM I've spoken with (and they're all friendly, of course, but she was great).
I knew there was a reason I was so taken by your initial post. It's hit us. (same name situation as your family)

Booked two nights (separately) through hotels.com, with whom we have NEVER had this problem before, and the steps for adding the reservations to MDE were different than they were January of this year, and now both sets of MBs are stuck.

Did anyone ever figure out a direct number to call?

Sigh.
