On your hotels.com reservation it gives you a Disney confirmation number. Link your reservation using that number to your MDE. Then you'll be able to customize. That worked for us.

Just an FYI - you can also purchase covers in different colors and designs for your bands. That and other bling as well. I'm sure they'll be in most of the gift stores.

Anyone know if you can use a magic band received for a resort reservation before the resort stay? We have our summer vacation planned in July for BW (YAY!), but I was a sucker and couldn't resist the new SW dining experiences so we are doing a quick (cheap as possible) trip offsite for a long weekend the last weekend in May. My husband and I already have two sets from our runDisney trip and I'm thinking our kids will be pretty jealous if we have ours and they don't yet. Our kids will only have annual pass vouchers before leaving and if I've understand correctly, we can link vouchers to magicbands but won't be eligible to order the AP magicband until they are activated. I understand that I could just buy them some but I will not be doing that since they will be eligible to get 2 sets from WDW already. Any thoughts?

Ok. Our bands are customized, now what?

We have APs, have customized our bands and they say they are ready to ship, but we won't be there until June. I can't make fast pass reservations yet. If I have them shipped out now can I add the reservations later, the month before we arrive?

Once your time opens you will be able to make FP reservations if you have the bands or not. It's more about your stay and tickets than the band. You don't even need a band to use your passes.

Adding to this, I called again about the MB AP process and got a diff response. They said I could create my MB but I see the passes linked cuz I bought them on disney.com. No bands to customize but my resort bands.

Sorry to be a nerd but I want my pass holder MB package with slider cards etc etc hahah

Thank you
I know I don't need the bands, and everyone has to do the reservations for their 3 fastpasses, but since it's an option, we want them. I just wasn't sure if I did need to change the reservations if I'd be forced to use the park kiosks. I'm not staying on property so I didn't know if there were different rules for just a passholder.
Honestly the way we do the parks so spontaneously, I don't know if we'd even make most of the reservations. At the moment there are no park hopper considerations, and it's not at all unusual for us to enter a park, stay a bit but decide it's too crowded and hop. If we used one reservation we're stuck with that park.
We usually get there much earlier in June than we will this year. Our school district was hit with a load of snow days I know we'll be hitting lots of crowds!

Received two sets of magic bands for myself and husband. Called Member Services. They told me to bring both sets of bands. They asked for the USPS last two digits of my second shipment and it seems that is the primary account. The other set was sent because we have annual passes. So confused. I'm so hoping this doesn't screw up our next trip. It's a 40th anniversary and I really do not want any blips.

@Murron. We have 3 sets of bands- took them all with us on our trip in March. Decided each morning which one to wear, based on mood/color/park. And they all worked just fine. We have two sets from staying on property and one from AP. (12 bands in all!) and our FP+ were linked to all 3 bands - never had a problem! Biggest problem was deciding which to wear. Two out of three are decorated and blinged- third is plain.

So I now have three MBs. Two for resort stays & one Passholder. For my upcoming visit, I was thinking about bringing all three of them to see if I could alternate to a different one each day b/c they are all going to be decorated differently.

Does anyone have experience doing this? How did it work?

I'm also going to have to rely on the concierge to switch them for me each morning unless I lug my laptop w/me so I can change it myself before I leave the room (no, I do not have a Smartphone..just a lil behind the times).

They are all interchangeable and can all be used. No one has to switch anything.

Oh, that's great, thanks! Should I switch the CC on MDE to the one I want for the room account before check in to make it easier then? I usually keep that one on MDE but use another that they swipe at the check in desk for the room charges...don't want any confusion w/the charges if the bands are linked to the info on MDE.
