We are 10 days away from our trip with Magic Bands ready to go. I did online check in and the confirmation showed that DH's magic band had no room key access or charging privileges but DD has room key access! I have both. How do I get his MB to have both, too? I tried to see if I could change his settings but can't online. Should I call before we go or just wait until we get there? I don't want to take away from precious park time to fix this. Thanks for any advice.

You need to call Disney to make sure he is listed on the reservation. If he is, and everything is set up correctly otherwise, you will need to speak to the IT department.

Hi. we received our magicbands! I am so excited. Silly question, can you wear them through the metal detector at the airport? Do you think it will mess them up?

Thank you, I just talked to IT because the reservation is under my husband's name! They said it looks like he is linked and should have access. IT attributed it to a glitch on the confirmation page and not to pay attention to it.

I think the answer is it should be removed like anything else when they say to empty your pockets, etc. -- a watch, wallet, keys, cell phone, anything like that. I wear a watch but I remove it going through airport security.

Our trip starts February 1st at Pop Century. When should I be looking for magic band information? I watched a DIS unplugged broadcast/podcast from August 6th that was very informative. The guys mentioned your band has a four digit pin code that you enter when using it for purchases, so that if you were to lose it no one could use it to charge things to your account. Very clever!

When everything is rolled out, you should have access to the system 60 days before your check in date.

Right now, they are opening things up a month at a time. Currently, guests with December check ins are waiting for access. Some are well within their 60 day period. Once Disney opens things up for them anyone with a December check in who is not yet within their 60 day period will get access at that point.

Nobody knows when the system will be fully rolled out so there is no way to know what February will bring. Just keep checking these forums for updates.

From page 1:
"You can link your profile to someone else's and you will then be able to link to any of their friends/family as well. Once this is done you will be able to make FP+ reservations for everyone."

We are going to WDW with my brother and sister-in-law. If we link profiles, once the trip is over can the link to each other's account be removed? We are FL residents, they are not, and we go to Disney a lot - but not them. There is no reason we should stay linked. Just wondering if it can be reversed.

There really is no reason to unlink. You can make plans for any subset of the people to whom you are linked. It is not everyone or no one.

If you do want to unlink you just delete each person from your family and friends list. If you think you will ever go to WDW together again, however, it is probably best just to stay linked.

We have a party of 15...some of us on property, some who live there but have not stayed on property recently (so no magic band) and some staying with the family who lives there. It sounds like, at this point, only those of us who are staying on property will receive magic bands. Any word on when AP holders can link to a band, even if they don't have a resort reservation? Or if our offsite family can purchase a magic band? I ask because only some of us will be able to make fast pass plus selections in advance and some will have to paper fp's in the parks that day. And do I understand it correctly that if we have the bands and make the fp+ selections, we can't use the paper fp kiosks in the park right?

So for those of you who linked AP's did you have your will call # linked to a reservation first?
I linked my PAP's with just the will call number. I also purchased the PAPs with the DVC discount last December. We go next week and I will find out if we get physical tickets or not. I was told we still need to go to guest services to get our tickets activated.

One other glitch. My DD is a cast member. Since they use their CM ID to get into the park they have no physical ticket, therefore, I cannot use FP+ for our trip. I have to have a ticket tied to her MB. Oh well. Maybe they'll come up with a way around that later.
