From what I understand, if you're doing a split stay, you get a set of bands for each resort. We're staying at CSR for one night and then moving to BWV for the rest of our stay, and are getting two sets of bands. Oddly enough, I was able to customize our bands for BWV last night, and only just got the ability to customize the ones for CSR this morning. I guess CSR came online after BWV?

In any case, I'm excited! I was actually hoping we'd get to test the Magic Bands, and it's been kind of fun to play around with FP+. It's a little annoying to have to have two sets of bands, but it's not a big deal to us.

I just checked this morning and the set of MBs for CSR popped up (10/18-10/25) with only 5 days left to customize. I could only do the POR at first, but that was the 2nd part of our stay. So now we have the 2 sets of bands. I think the room keys are linked to the MBs from what I have heard on the MB thread, so that is why 2 sets are need (seems wasteful to me though since you can supposedly still use the MB for "future" trips up to 2+ years, why not just "reload" whatever when you make the resort switch?) Probably something they will have to figure out for split stays... eventually...

I too am worried something will go wrong or maybe DD or DS will grab the wrong band or something. So far they have also had KTTW backups though, but not sure for how long?

It seems like the magic bands here are for mid October. We arrive early October, Oct 2....was hoping to get some of these MB, they sounds awesome. Not sure if I should have hope or not.

I found it by googling "Buzz's Coronado springs resort site". It is the 1st or 2nd one that come up.

I don't know if it has been posted yet or not, but my family was just able to trade our mugs that we received at check-in last week for the new Rapid Fill mugs. The CM at Cafe Rix said that the Rapid Fill program would begin tomorrow, Sunday.

I have read about these and am still not understanding what they are, other than the obvious, mugs.?.

The mugs have RFID chips that limit your refills to one every two minutes (as the machines are currently set). Mug prices are based on your length of stay and can be used at any resort. Mugs are activated at the time of purchase.

I hope this helps!

They're trying. But that's not stoping some people from inserting paper cups into the mugs and switching them out quickly so the flow doesn't stop.
