There was a test for some people arriving at two specific resorts between June 20 and June 22, and the test ended yesterday. Nobody knows when the next test will be.

They did release some merchandise related to the Magic Bands, so it seems like they'll be released soon.

Likely not before mid to late September at the earliest. Testing and implementation has not been that great but was told sometime in September. Still a lot of bugs to work out and some construction items to be completed

I called member services about this last week. We are going Sept.14-21. I wanted to be able to request different colored bands if we were going to have them. I could just see the kids fighting over them. She said that they are still not sure when they would be out. Told me to call back the beginning of Sept.

I know some people didn't like this idea, but I thought it was very cool. Am hoping to use them in Nov for our visit!

Yay for September! We arrive on the 22nd and I would love to have the bands for our trip! Keeping my fingers (and toes) crossed!
