They haven't officially rolled out magic bands yet that I know of, I believe they are currently just testing them... So once they announce that they are really in use you should be able to order them I would assume

They are already in use at the Polynesian and they are supposed to be in use at all resorts by February. I'm assuming some folks were successful at ordering them. I'm wondering how they were able to pull that off.

Yes Like I said they are being tested at all the resorts this month. When you can order yours it'll be under the "magic bands and cards" tab on your my Disney experience. Last rumor I heard was that people are expecting them to be released to everyone November 1st since the last test date is at the end of October. But that is just a rumor and not anything that was put out by Disney.

How to link the paper military ticket before I go

We have been chosen to test the Magic,bands and my husband just purchased the Military Salute to the Veterans tickets, which states that they must be exchanged at Guest Services. How do I link these tickets prior to going? I would like to do the fastpass before we go. Is that possible?

First log onto My Disney Experience on the Disneyworld website then sign in or register. Enter the family and/or friends in your party under "create family and friends list." This should allow you to pick magic band colors for each under "Manage Magic Bands."

Click on "Link Existing Reservations and Tickets" on the right. Select "ticket or pass." You'll see a large sample ticket and other small sample tickets under it. Make sure you select the sample with 17-20 digits. Enter the number on the very bottom left corner of your paper ticket where it says "ID or ticket order number" and click next. It will then ask you to assign this ticket to a guest in your party. Make sure you write down which paper ticket # you assign to each magic band.
You can also link your resort reservation in the same way. Hope this helps!

Thanks for this thread. I think most of my questions about linking our tickets to the MB have been answered. I have a quick question about purchasing tickets.

My mom will be purchasing our tickets for November with the Military salute(dad is retired army reserve). In the past, we have purchased these tix at the park ticket window. It was more convenient that way for us. Can you still do that, or do they have to be purchased on base or at SOG now? Thanks a lot!

Not 100% but as far as I know you have to get them on base/sog

the paper ticket you linked is NOT the ticket you will use in the parks... so now you have FP+ associated with a ticket that is not a valid ticket. When you get an activated ticket at the park it will have a different number on it and you will not be able to use the FP+ reservations you made. This is how I was lead to understand it. The reservations are tied to that paper ticket you have and it's bar code and when you exchange it at Disney you will have a new ticket number and a new bar code that will be different. To my knowledge you can't transfer the reservations you made with your excange voucher to your actual ticket once you get it.

Sorry, but i think linking the vouchers may have made it impossible for you to use fast pass plus at all unless you can change the ticket number associated with your magic band when you get there... and then you would have to make new reservations for FP+ as the old ones were associated with a ticket that was never really a ticket...


hope that wasn't too long winded... google disney military tickets fast pass for more info.

Seems like someone else may have been able to link just the voucher so I'm confused now!

I live at Keesler - my tickets came really fast - 2 days after I ordered them from ITT, they called to tell me they were in.

I'm just back - loved how easy it was to link our Salute tickets to our MBs and schedule FPplus. I never could get the exchange vouchers we had to link up so I had to link the activated tickets once on site and it worked with no problems. Plenty of FPplus options were available and we got everything we wanted. I have 2 days left on the ticket that I'm using in December and will see how the split stay goes with the tix.

The Salute our Soldiers tix (the 4 day ones) have to be purchased on base or as SOG. if it is the regular 1 day military park tix I believe can be purchased at a tix booth but I believe there is tax on them rather than on base or at SOG. Good luck

Thanks a lot. Previously, on two separate trips we have bought the four day military tickets at the theme park ticket windows, and I had thought maybe it changed. I guess it has. Looks like we'll be stopping by SOG when we get there. Appreciate the info!

I ordered my tickets from Keesler AFB, it did take 2 weeks for mine to come in. What I was told is that they wait till they get a few purchases before they order. What I got was a Walt Disney World Exchange Certificate tickets. On the back it says 4 Day Park Hopper Salute. There is a number down at the bottom of the ticket. I did link this number to my MDE and it comes up as a Military Salute ticket. I made FP+ selections. From what I read on FB page Military Disney Tips, once you activate your tickets you will receive new ticket, you then go put that number in your MDE and FP+ selections can then be transferred to the new card. So would need to activate card prior to going to park. Will be December before I can see if it really does work, but figured it is worth a try.
