Not exactly. AKL in one way or another has been involved in all the tests since the beginning. (A lot of the original Magical Express testers were staying at AKL in 2012). We really have no idea what Disney is doing!

Can't be 100% accurate because they did testing in July and AKL wasn't included that month. But I'm talking Magic Bands only. Not fastpassplus. Magic Bands have not repeated a hotel month to month YET.

Magic bands were being tested at AKL and POP and a few other places in July.

I think we were one of the originals testers of FP+ in May 2011. They greeted us at Magical Express at the MCO airport. We've had 4 trips since that time and no FP+ testing etc. We have the DVC PAP deal (what a great thing that was) so last May we didn't have to do anything with that...i.e., bands etc. I guess we'll find out -- we'll be in BWV in September 4 to 20.

I would love to test the fastpass+ but not so much the bands... my daughter hates wearing things on her wrists....

I believe once you have the band you can always link a pass to it and the RFID will register as your ticket for entrance. There are AP holders who attended a test and now have bands with Their passes on it. Not sure about room keys. .

Yes, as long as you have a band, any ticket you link on the site will be on it. If you have more than one band then the ticket will be linked to them all so you could switch out the band color as your mood changes.

My AP is linked to the site and I have a gray and green band. I can grab either one when I'm heading to the park and each works the same.
