My family is. We had KTTW cards with lanyards last year and the kids wouldn't keep theirs on half the time so my wife and I wound up with them. Add to that I had the PP+ card and I was carrying around a ton of stuff. Much rather have the RFID band that includes my room keys, park tickets, charge card and PP+ all together.
I really really really want the Magic Bands for our trip!!!! For all of the previous reasons mentioned.

I hope so. I think they will be a welcome addition with everything tied to one. A little worried about how nasty they will look/smell/feel by the end of the week, but we'll give it a go

Okay, weird question about the magic bands. They aren't on permanently for the entire trip, are they!? I mean, we could take them off to sleep at night? I can't stand having those bands on - whenever we get them at local parks, museums, etc, I have to take it off the minute I get in the car. And my kids are the same way. There's no way we'd be able to sleep in them (I know, I'm kind of a princess that way!). Anyone know

From the pictures I have seen online, they definitely come off. They have a band similar to a watch with multiple positions for tightening. They look like they will be comfortable.

I really really hope they don't pop off. I would rather they are stuck on than worry my kids will be playing with them and loose them. "But Mama, I was just adjusting it" for the 145,000,000th time!! I read we will be able to choose color and there will be "attachments" you can buy to, well attach. And that you can pay more for a character one. Just another way to scrape a few more dollars outta our pocketts,,,again "But Mama I really want the princess one!!"

I think they will be okay. They look like a watch strap and kids wear watches all the time (well, mine doesn't, but I've seen other kids wear them)
Plus, there is so much other stuff for them to look at and do...they won't even notice the bands!

Just saw this and with room reservations just booked I'm joining in. This seems like a fun thread. I will be there August 2-10 at ASSp. Could I get a plain green Mickey head with the fab five motif. I don't need any name on it. Thank you. I have a lot of catch up reading on this thread ahead of me.

Happy Eater to all who celebrate! I'm enjoying my evening off last night for church and Easter Egg hunt and today to spend time with my family and catch up on the boards and get our bi-monthly menu and shopping lists together. Work has been so nuts, which is a good thing for my Disney budget, but it's nice to focus on my own trip and family for a bit!

Yes, and no. I think my oldest DS and my husband will love them. I am personally worried about them getting gross, sweaty, etc, but overall I think they'll be great! I don't see my youngest wearing his, at least not for long, but I guess at 2 years old he won't need one?

We are going with the military discount too. I am assuming we'd get the Magic Bands for our room and dining plan, but maybe have the tickets on the normal card tickets like they've always had. I imagine this to be so because in the past we've always had our KTTW card for room and dining and then a separate card for our tickets. We normally purchase ours on base at ITT but maybe if you purchased them at the park they'd put it on the band? I guess only time will tell on that one!

This is kinda what I was thinking as well. I'd like to think that they'd put the military tickets on the band, but they haven't put them on the KTTW cards, so why change now... I just want my free Disney bracelet!!

I know this probably isn't the best place for this question, but i thought i'd give it a shot, something to keep the conversation going i guess...

Right now on our last day we have a breakfast reservation for Whispering Canyon Cafe. I was reading up on this and there weren't a lot of great reviews for this. I was wondering what you guys thought. If you don't think i should go, where should we go instead??

I will have a 5 year old and 7 year old who have been to disney 2 other times. We already have a reservation for chef mickey's, and we are just looking for a fun meal that really says "disney" before we have to go home. We don't have park tickets for that day and I'd like to go somewhere we've never been (so that rules out Ohana)

Whadda yall think?? Thanks for the help!!

1900 Park Fare at GF has a nice breakfast buffet with May Poppins, Alice, the Mad Hatter and some Pooh characters. It is a lot of fun with great character interaction.

Free Disney bracelet...Yes siree!!!! If they did put everything on the band then I would really be a fan of them. Keeping track of four bracelets and four cards is not nearly as convenient as just the Magic Band bracelets.

We're staying at WL so we have a reservation at Whispering Canyon Cafe for dinner. I recently read a positive dinner review for there here on the boards. But of course, that's irrelevant since you're doing breakfast! Do you have boys or girls? What about 1900 Park Fare's Supercalifragilistic breakfast? Cape May Cafe? It's a little similar, minus Mickey, to Chef Mickey's though.

QOTD:

An add on to the last one. Would you pay to have a "themed" MagicBand?

I would cough up some money to have my daughters be Cinderella themed. I think it would be a great keepsake, and might encourage her to actually keep it on!
