Just got the Magic+ testing email..... for my trip that starts FRIDAY!!!

Though it sounds like they have given up and just changed the wording. It's more of a reminder not to pack them in the checked bag and that they'll be needed at MCO if using ME then an invitation to participate.

Just got an e-mail from Disney Destinations telling me that I need to customize my MB and confirm my shipping address by tomorrow. We've had the bands since Sept 20th; they are not going to ship me another set are they?

I don't think so. I have had my bands for a couple of weeks already and yesterday I got an email about customizing them by today so I could receive them before my 10/18 trip. Out of curiosity I went to MDE and clicked on the Magic Bands link and it shows our bands w/their ID numbers and that are currently active. The only option it gives is to deactivate them.

I just got an email with a link to a survey to comment on my magic band experience and we haven't even gone, but yet, I never got an email asking us to try magic bands in the first place. Seems slightly backwards.

We are coming from Birmingham, Al. We've been making this drive since I was a kid. My uncle has a condo on Siesta Key in Sarasota and we drive there every summer. I listen to books occasionally on the drive. That makes it entertaining. Or, we watch (listen) to Disney movies or music, too. It's a long drive, but worth it. We will leave about noon on Friday when my daughter gets out do class at college. So we will arrive late in Orlando that night to check in at Pop Century.

We drove in April and July and will probably drive again in April. Our drive takes us 21-22 hours which we split in 2 days. Now driving from Alabama.... that would be a piece of cake!!! lol
Have a safe trip!

Woo hoo! I'm working until 1pm today, then heading home to top off the packing. We're picking the kids up after school and heading straight to the airport. Can't wait to get to our happy place!

Hi everyone we are going on our first WDW trip on Oct 30 and I haven't received our ME tags or anything from Disney yet!! I did do up our Magic Bands and they said they would be waiting at our resort when we got there!! My TA did forward me e-mail from them showing the correct mailing address. Most of the others from the October and November boards have already gotten their "Mickey Mail" just wondering if I should be worried we are 21 days away or is it just cause we live in rural, Nova Scotia, Canada - and the mail takes longer?? Anyone know how they are sent here - basic Canada Post or UPS?? Any input would be welcome!! Thanks

I'm not sure about the Canada thing, I used a TA and the "Mickey mail" had to go through her. I arrive on the 27th and it came to me last week Monday. So your TA hasn't gotten the tags etc. yet? I have heard they don't ship Magic Bands out of the US, and international visitors would get them at the resorts.

I don't blame you for being worried, hopefully your TA can help and gets back to you soon. I hope you get your stuff soon, Mickey mail is very exciting!!
