Do you see anything going on around Tahiti and Rapa Nui? Or the beach and sunset pointe?

Hi There,

This is my first post - my family is going to be staying at the Poly for 10 days in October and I'm very excited for the prospect of having Magicbands. For those that do have the bands, or who have been able to customize them how far ahead of time are you able to do so?

We're 59 days out and were able to check in yesterday with no issues, but I'm not able to customize FP+ or Magicbands.

That said, we are still a ways out. Thanks a ton

Thanks so much!

My poor husband just wants me to leave it! I'm kind of driving myself nuts about the magicbands!

I'm not in that area and haven't done much exploring yet but I was walking that way and saw some construction works out looking around and stuff like that. Not sure what they were looking at, but no other signs of anything going on.

I haven't been over by Rapa Nui, but there is nothing going on by Tahiti or the beach.

My experience with September 7 scheduled arrival was we were able to customize bands at 21 days out and they were delivered to our house 17 days out. I never received an email or mail notification to get me started.

I don't think I was able to customize the prior to this as I was constantly checking My Disney Experience but it is possible that I did not catch it as soon as I was able. I had entered my Annual Pass tickets linking them to my resort reservation and selected FP+ options maybe a week or two before that.

Thanks so much for your help. I clicked on 'Select Fastpasses' tonight by accident and it worked! So we have almost all of our fastpasses selected for our trip.

That would be great! I wish I had a trip planned to see it in full use vs just the weekend use they were doing early August when we were there.

It really made the mid day pool less crowded on the weekend when they carted people!

I DID IT!

I called Disney tonight and switched us from POR to the Poly. I really wanted CR but the kids wanted Poly. Although I didn't tell them I changed the reservation-hopefully it will stay a surprise!

Does anyone know how hard it will be to get a king room?

You can't put kids in with you in a king room or so I have heard. The beds in the regular rooms are Queens though and they have a daybed.

We'll be at the Poly October 12-20 on a room only reservation and using old non-expiring tickets from previous visits. Will this impact our getting a wristband, or mean we won't get one since we won't have a new ticket tied to our reservation?

I'm usually up on all things Disney, but I really haven't been paying much attention to MDE and the magic bands, etc. I think it's b/c we have a hard time planning what parks we want to go to on what days, let alone what times we want to ride what rides! We don't even have reservations for a room 180 days out, let alone know where we want to eat and when. However, I do think having the wristband would be kind of neat, and wondered how that works. Maybe there's a thread I should be reading instead of always looking around the resorts boards

Look for Rabbits! Plan to be on the monorail by 8 to get to MK by 8:45. Don't use POLY bus to AK. Walk to TTC and use theirs, no extra stops. Pool was favorite thing of whole trip & get bartender to customize you a smoothie!

***take your EPIPEN if you are allergic to BEES!***
I got stung just walking by the pool.
