We are 3 separate parties traveling together, but staying at different resorts. When I connected my family to our dinner reservations, it didn't automatically link on their end. My mom called and now she has access to the dining reservations, fast passes and MY resort reservation. Kinda odd I thought!
Anyways - received Magic Bands on the 19th in the am. The pm UPS guy brought an envelope with the invite, which addressed DH and myself as DVC members. I called, and apparently just a mistake. Cast Member also said there's a known issue with mailings happening late.

25 days and still no sign of our MBs shipping. Yesterday the CM told me the tracking info would become available "at any moment now". Tomorrow will be a week from the date our MBs had to be customized by...we customized them a month earlier.

Our trip was booked last Sunday, the 15th (last day of the fall promo) for arrival at the Polynesian on 10/7. I saw the link to order MB's on the website almost immediately after booking. I ordered our bands then and they were shipped out the next day (Monday) although they still showed being constructed. They arrived via UPS air on Wed. morning, and the letter telling about them and how to set everything up arrived next day air the following day.

It appears as if there is no rhyme or reason to the way the MB's are shipping. I customized mine on 9/18. I hade until 09/22 to make changes (30 days out). I just got a text message from UPS that they are scheduled to deliver tomorrow.

Got my bands this morning, woooooot!! I was sleeping when the UPS guy came and I ran down the hall of my building in my pj's, slid in my socks, and managed to crash into the poor guy as he came in the door

I cut the grey part off the band's strap - it was HUGE on my wrist. One more thing to add to my vacation pile

Thanks

All of you anxiously awaiting the UPS delivery of your magic bands, be glad you don't live outside the US. I wish ours could be delivered
