Good comment.

Most likely the Magical Express info is not on the band, all the people at the desk need from your Band is the resort you are checking in at that day. Cool!

We have never used the booklet for the return trip. We always get a letter in our room with a bar code at the top and use that.

Nothing is on the band. There is a chip in the band that "talks" to Disney's database where your information is stored. Anything linked to your MDE profile (as your ME reservation would be) is accessible by the band.

That works too. My point is that the actual magic band won't work for the return trip

Does your check in date fall after they go live with the system? If so, try going through on line check in again (you will probably get an error message). Then log out of your account and back in. You may have to do this a few times but it has worked for others. Good luck!

I finally was able to customize our MB's today, I did notice it said they will serve as our room keys and ME.

Perhaps once full roll out occurs the ME Drivers will be able to scan for the return trip

I had to link my annual passes myself. I entered the number on the bottom of the pass. Other people have said they have scanned the bar code using the app to get the annual pass linked. Good luck!

So today I logged onto MDE and I am able to make fastpass+ selections but no options for magic bands. I have not done online check in though. Do I need to do that to have the option for the magic bands?

I'm at CBR, has anyone else there been able to go any further (customize, FP+, etc)?

I have a split stay for 11/29(1day) and 11/30(6days) (Resorts: AOA and then POP) I was not able to customize MB yesterday when Nov came available. However, this morning when I logged in I noticed that my wording changed to "Personalize Magicbands" and today I was able to customize them. I too was able to customize 2 sets of Mb's since I have split stays. I am still 65 days out for my first night but 66 days out for the trip I actually have tickets. From what everyone is saying it looks like you need to be under the 60 da make to be able to do FB+. So I will wait until then. (Who am I fooling..actually, I will still check everyday)

While I appreciate the "technical clarification" --- that is exactly what I just said.

Since the chip is part of the band, then I believe most people will continue to say stuff like "my info is on the band."

Didn't work for me until I did the online check-in.

Tired of obssessing - last couple questions

I can't do this any more!!! MBs - no MBs. FP+ - BOG lunch ressies!!! This is gonna be a relaxing trip if it kills me so I am letting all of this go - sort of.

Questions:

DD still does not show tickets under our package ressie. I have 1 set and DH has 2 sets - none for DD. I contacted IT and I guess (hope) they are working on it but, if I have this right, will I not be able to get FB+ for her until the issue is fixed correct?

If she links her AP, will that show in my MDE (she is linked to plan/see/etc) and can I make FP+ using that as her ticket?

She will not be using the 2 day ticket she doesn't actually have yet until her AP renewal comes up. If the 2 pass gets set up for her in the system and is put on her MBs, how does she NOT use those tickets for park admission?

Thanks,

(a very tired) Pooch

If you purchase tickets directly through disneyworld.com can you link them right away to your resort reservation? If so, how? Thanks so much!
