My e-mail was sent from Disney at 4:17 a.m. this morning and my magic bands were here at 9:32 a.m. for our checkin on Nov. 21.

To me they are a little oddly shaped. Not quite round so it hits against my wrist a lot.

I hope this isnt true. 3 fast pass isnt enough especially when they dont have all the attractions listed. I was hoping to go before that happened.

This is NOT true! I was worried because we leave in less than 3 weeks, and we have family meeting us for a couple of days. We have Magic Bands and FP+, and our family members will not. I just called Disney, and spoke to a castmember AND she double checked with her supervisor. She said that this whole thing about not getting the old Fastpasses after Oct. 27th is a complete rumor. She said that we will also be getting a KTTW card, and will still be able to utilize the old Fastpass system even though we have FP+. She said not to believe anything unless it is officially released by Disney.

The crease really bugs me in my band ! Today I placed a heavy book on it for a few hours and now it feels MUCH better when I put it on. The kids had me do theirs too.

I will have to do that because it creases right on the sides of the Mickey head. Most uncomfortable...

I hope this is a case where we can believe what a CM told us?

Arriving the week before Thanksgiving and we just recieved our customized MBs today! I am retired military so won't have tix until arrival. Dying to make FP+ Ressies, but hopefully there will be decent options left. If not, we will still have an amazing trip!

I have been told by several CM's including a manager of IT (who was helping me with a problem where our FP+ weren't showing in our itinerary on MDE) to be sure to use your KTTW card to pull additional fast passes so you aren't limited to just three. When I questioned that I thought MB meant we weren't getting KTTW cards, they all said, no, we're giving both to you, in case the MB doesn't work for any reason, and so you can get more than just 3 fast passes!

I am hoping everyone on here is right, but I heard the opposite from a pretty reliable source, so we shall see. I am preparing for the worst, just in case.

I was told the same thing via e-mail when I gave my feedback on the new 3-fastpass maximum. I hate the whole idea - we are park commando type and will speedwalk from Splash to Space 5 times a day if that's what we have to do to get a particular ride out of our system. Damn the blisters, full speed ahead. We don't pay $3-5K to ride three rides a day. I just don't get what was wrong with the old system?
