There was a lot of logging out then back in though. And some who had done online check in had the Personalize option appear after modifying their check in, even if they didn't change anything.
thank you very much, much appreciated Once you customized did you immediately get to choose your fast passes? Or did you have to wait a few days....

Actually got to pick FP before Personalize appeared. That's how I knew I was getting MB soon! Since full rollout for DW resorts begins Nov. 1 the time frames are all a bit wacky and hard to predict. I would just keep logging in and out, trying to access everything from the web page and not the app, and doing moline check in. All online check in really does is let the resort know when to expect you. You don't have to provide a cc or room request.

We got the option to customize our MB's last Thursday, which was day 65 I think. It appeared in the evening for us. Today is day 60 for us. I've reserved some fp+'s tonight but I haven't done online check in yet. I'm really not in a hurry to do it. I will probably wait a little while before I do it. We're not paid in full, either.

There doesn't seem to be a consistent pattern for when someone can customize their MB's. I saw people with check in days that were before mine who they were able to customize days before we were. Maybe that will change when testing is over and everything is live.

I have not done online check in. Since we are staying CL I don't really see the urgency for me to do it until we arrive at the resort (we are paid in full). As for the magic bands; the option to customize just appeared right around the 65 day mark which at that time I did just that. I attempted to see if FP+ would work once I did that, but it did not. Then on my 60 day mark the option to do FP+ magically appeared and I was able to go in and make my selections for my entire stay. Hope this helps and good luck in the next few days.

Hi there,

Once they ship, they will arrive overnight. That's how we got ours. We received an email that they shipped and they were at our door the next day.

Cool!!! I have them coming to my office so they won't sit on my doorstep.

Also, I didn't know this till my co-worker brought her's in, they have your name inside!! And the black and color part can be separated for kids so they aren't wearing a giant, adult sized band!

I didn't like mine either--it was curled up so tight in the box that it kind of held that small shape when I put it on my wrist. I couldn't imagine wearing it for our whole vacation. I laid it out flat and put a book on it for a few days to straighten it out. I still don't like it, but it is better than it was. I also tried it on with the RFID Mickey head on the side of my wrist instead of the top, and that helped too.

Maybe give these things a try? If you still don't like it maybe you can attach it to a bag instead of wearing it.

Good luck and have a great trip.

I know you weren't asking me--but I have some recent experience. We are doing a split stay with BC at the end of October and were able to customize 60 days from our BC check in date (WL wasn't testing yet at that point.) Once WL started testing, we were able to customize for that resort--but it was closer to 40 days out. I think it was a shorter time frame for WL just because they weren't testing yet. Since your trip is later, look for the Magic Band information in your My Disney Experience at 60 days out.

Another interesting tidbit--it let us customize at midnight EST. Since we live in Colorado, we were able to customize and get FP+ at 10 p.m. at 61 days before.

Thanks I will try the book idea I did think it felt a little better with the mickey head on the side. Now I just need to figure out how I will get DS to keep his on

Um, I may be a day early about asking my my DH is driving me nuts about the MB's! On the My Disney Experience, we are 61 days out and I don't see the MB option. When I click "Magic Bands and Cards" I don't see any options to pick them. I have all of my reservations in and it is paid in full. Will a new button pop up when I can choose the MB?

**Edit** Read a few pages back and answered my own question. Will wait patiently for the magical day for the Personalize option to appear!

A press release from last week stated Nov. 1 is full roll out of MBs for all DISNEY properties, so no worries, you will have one for Feb!
