I was told the bands can be active for up to two years. Apparently you manage them on line at MDE. The way it was explained to me was that you could have ten bands ... different ones for different outfits. OK guys stop laughing. Then you can just go to MDE and decide on the one you want active and all your information (room key, tickets, fast passes, charge card, etc.) will go to the band you tell it to go to. And you can switch bands hourly or daily or whatever ... you manage it at MDE. The thingy inside that makes it all happen has a two year life span they told me. So what I'm going to do is to make a note on my calendar that "purple band" expires on whatever date. I'm going to make mine 23 months on my calendar ... want to make sure it doesn't expire while I'm using it. Then you deactivate it on MDE and you can give it to a CM to recycle.

This actually makes a lot of sense to me because you can deactivate cards and bands on MDE now. I just tried to reserve fast pass+ for Oct/Nov trip but that isn't available yet... I have a feeling that will become available soon next month towards the end maybe... Everything the cast member told me last month is actually happening!!

Got my Magic Bands (and the invitation to participate in the MyMagic+ test) today for my Sept. BCV stay.
I'm sure the info is somewhere on the Disboards (too much info out there to sort through), but I'm afraid to link up my UT tickets because I want to use the old FP system. Will this round of testing be able to use the old FP system too? I'm curious about the new technology, but not scheduling my attractions. I would maybe schedule a day just because I'm curious and want to try it out. We didn't even do the dining plan/make TS reservations because we don't like being tied down to times on vacation. Last trip was more relaxing the last few days when we began to ignore our TS reservations.
And for those who know, do I have to change my UT paper ticket to an rfid card now? Best place to do that?
I'm ok with just dealing with whatever change Disney makes, I just wish they would give us more information.

FastPass+ But No Magic Bands. Yet???

We're staying at the Beach Club from Sep 18-25, and I made my FastPass+ reservations when the option appeared one day on the My Disney Experience App, and on the disneyworld.disney.go site, but there's no sign of anything Magic Band related.

This may be a good thing, because our tickets aren't fully reflected on the app or the site - We have 3 tickets, with Parkhopper and Waterparks, but the app/site only shows 2 and no parkhopper. Our paper itinerary is correct, and the customer service reps for WDW have assured me that their system reflects the the correct tickets. The rep told me that sometimes the site doesn't fully reflect everything.

Hopefully, when we show up at the Beach Club we can get Magic Bands. If we don't take part in the test, I guess it's a small thing, but it would be cool to be able to try the next big thing!

I vote for "My children did this to me in gratitude for taking them to Disney". Another one would be "How to rent Buzzy the fly, seeing eye guy after you face plant at Disney".

So, does anyone know if you can wear a magic band on each of you hairy fly legs ( in rainbow colors,) or would that be too over the top?

Signed, Buzzy the fly, your fashonista guy...

Teena - safe travels.

Even though you have a lot of work ahead of you, I know you will have a wonderful visit with your girls!

I was thinking the same thing. Do hope you feel better soon, what a way to start a vacation at Disney! I keep thinking, should I bring my running stuff, but who am I kidding, I'll be sitting on the balcony too, even without knee problems!

I vote for this one.

3 more days!!!! Packing is starting to pick up now, starting laundry today and then everyone just wears the leftover clothes. Already having trouble sleeping...I am more excited than the kids I swear.

Have a good trip Teena, too bad we'll miss getting to meet you. All the information you share with us is amazing.
