Finally

I'm SO excited. Yes, I'm doing the happy dance. We are exactly 45 days out and finally this evening I was able to personalize my magic bands and make fastpass + reservations. YIPPEE!!! I checked this morning and it wasn't available yet, but tonight there they were ready to personalize and choose! Our arrival date is December 2 so maybe they are beginning to roll out December!

My grandson will be at WDW using a MagicBand with his parkhopper ticket in his Mom's MDX account. When I meet up with them, will I be able to convert his PH ticket to an annual pass as long as it's before the PH runs out? (As per usual -- like it was before?)

Magic. Band Customization

In an effort to help others make sense of the customization window I thought I would post some additional information. As of this afternoon, I couldn't customize our Magic Bands for a December trip. I logged onto MDE this evening (right at midnight) and I can now customize our magic bands.

We arrive 12/15 and have not yet done online check-in.

We check in 11/17 at the Polynesian. I did give them an address to ship to (in the US) but I haven't gotten any notification about shipment other than the update on the MDE account. Any info would be great. I am trying to plan ahead and want to make sure we either get them before we leave or not have to worry till we get there. Thanks =)
For those with a US mailing address, they are shipped to you. All others will received them at the resort. Since you had until 10/18 to customize, yours should ship out very soon. You will probably get the shipping email the same day they are to be delivered.

With 76 days till check-in, I just logged on this morning and clicked Personalize MagicBands like I do every morning and today it said I could customize! We check-in on Jan 3. It says I have 45 days to customize (till Dec 3).

The only color option for us right now is gray though Do I need to call Disney so they can fix that or do I need to wait a few days/weeks and the colors will show up?

I'm just so excited for this trip it's hard to wait! My little heart is going pitter-patter!

I'm just so confused as there seems to be no consistency to when they are letting people customize MB for December.

We arrive December 7th to GF... And I still don't have customize MB... I only have manage MB... Ugh this is getting frustrating.

I don't want to do online check in... And I know that has gotten a lot of people to customize, but there are others that haven't done online check in.

This is a change up for December arrivals. If you want costumized bands you need to check in. If you don't check in you will get grey bands when you arrive

This isn't necessarily true. I was just able to customize bands for our 12/27 check in. We aren't within 60 days so I cannot do online check in, but all customization options (all 7 colors) were available to me.

Curiouser and curiouser!

Looks like the answer is "yes" and it won't affect his access to QSDP or FP+ for this trip -- and will get him a card also (since our trip next Spring will be partly off-site.

I'm checking in on January 5th and I can customize our bands but it also only shows gray as a choice. I am hoping that it is because we are not close enough yet.

Same experience here. Last night MDE allowed me to customize our bands and we're outside the 60 days period so we haven't checked in online yet. Based on the varied experiences, I assume Disney has some system in place that is not necessarily tied to check in date.

For whatever reason, MDEx has allowed me into the customize MagicBand area for my February trip since the day I reserved. But I too can only see gray as a color choice. Curious to hear if/when the color choices show up for you folks, or if you decide to call about it.

It was the same for me too (for Jan. 3rd check in) but the other colors showed up 74 days out from our trip. Literally right now, a few hours ago it was only showing grey.
