As long as you have DME arranged for your reservation they will be able to see the information when they scan your MagicBand at MCO.

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.
Thanks for the info I called ticketing today to see if I could get a voucher in the mail and was told no then transferred to IT. IT is looking into it for me. The IT tech I talked with seemed really good so I'm hoping she can do something to fix this, but she has to call me back on Monday because ticketing closed and she needs to get some more info from them.

Tons of great info!!! Thanks everyone for your posts. We're at OKW and VGF starting on December 21st, so are patiently waiting to try to add FP+ reservations on MDE. If we can, great! If not, we'll go the old fashionned route Regardless, we'll be at Disney for Christmas, so will be happy either way!

Just wanted to add my voice to the MDE versus MDX debate... disney officially calls it MDX in all literature and training.

My opinion would be to use the term MDX. I think Disney is to trying to eliminate confusion of DME, Disney's Magical Express and DMX. Just as a CM can not use the term wristband or bracelet when speaking of a Magicband.

When you have the QS dining plan, can one person go through the line and get food for everyone, or does each person (including the kids) have to scan their Magic Band for their order?

(Are they like the tix used to be -- with all credits available to everyone in the room?)

I believe this is still possible. We never get the dining plan so I don't have first-hand experience. Hopefully someone else will come along to provide more info for you.

Shortly after creating this post I did go back and put MDE/MDX wherever necessary. I think it is good to have both there for right now, since so many posters are referring to it as MDE. I actually think the best way to write it is MDEx but for right now I will leave things the way they are.

How do you put someone on your Friends List but not Family List, as we don't travel together very much but I don't want to remove them. Is there a separate list or is it just the same "Friends/Family" list?

Hope that makes sense!

When you edit the individual in your 'Family & Friends' list, there is a check-box titled 'Add to Family List: This friend often travels with me.'. If checked, they are in the family section. If not checked, they are in the friends section.

I need some info and help!!
I booked a surprise trip last week for 12/30/13 to 1/3/14 at PoR. In MDEx, under the manage bands and cards link-all that shows are the KTTK cards from us summer stays at Poly and POFQ. Those cards are old and not active. When does the MB icon show up to customize? I have read every thread but cannot seem to find out the answer.

December arrivals are not yet eligible for MyMagic+ (MagicBands & FastPass+). If Disney holds to the same dates as for Oct & Nov arrivals, it should be enabled in the next week or so.

Ok, thanks! I saw that check mark, but wasn't sure what it would do.

  • All information in this post is subject to change as MDE/MDX and My Magic + are fully rolled out.
This has probably been said by someone else but I linked my MNSSHP tickets to my account and had no issues.

If I book a room for this upcoming Friday, will I still get MagicBands and FastPass+? That is only a few days from now.
