There is no information on the bands themselves, they just link to your account.

For a new trip you will get new MB (check MDE to customize) but any active band you have will link to the account.

So I will receive new magic bands regardless and then all of my magic bands that are active will work?

Yes. If you customize them, you will get colors. If you do not, you will get gray.

I have a few questions regarding the Magic Bands.

We've stayed at Beach Club last Oct/Nov during the test stage and upgraded DS and my tickets to APs knowing that we could use those bands later on our return trips.
We have AKL booked 8/15-8/21 room only reservation.
Yacht Club booked 8/21-8/28 pk (free dining offer) with 4 day Park Hopper.

1. How does Disney know which ticket to use on DS and my Magic Bands? We would obviously want to use our APs, not our 4 day PH.
2. Also, our FD starts 8/21 but decided to go early, 8/15. Could DH use his ticket early with Magic Bands?

Sorry if this has already been said, or mentioned, or answered, but you can have the magic bands have a different name, like a nickname, correct?

So, you used to be able to have some key cards have charging privileges while others did not (kids). Are we still able to designate that with the MagicBands? And when would we do that?

Yes. At the front desk, I think.

Yes. Also, the name is printed on the inside of the band so it is not visible to others. It is just a way to keep track of whose band is whose.

icons to Magic Bands?

Someone told me they thought you could add icons, such as a heart, when customizing your Magic Band. I don't see that as an option, though. I only see choosing a color and name. I was able to play around and copy and paste a heart from the emoticon choices on my iPhone. But I don't know if it would go through when ordering. Does anyone know what she's talking about and if this is even possible? Thanks.

The only choices from Disney are the color and the name on the inside. They do sell jibitz, covers, and sliders.

People have painted them, added jewels, etc. after they receive them. That is probably what they were referring to.

I believe those can only be purchased at their stores. I think she's talking about accessories.

Hi I have a question about my Magic Band and my AP voucher. Currently I have an AP voucher linked to my band. We are staying onsite and will make FP+ reservations next weekend. I'm wondering, though, when I go to activate my AP, do I give them the voucher card to activate, or the Magic Band? What happens to my FP+? Since the number on my voucher is what is linked, will it wipe out my FP+ reservations once I activate the AP? Will it have a different number? Sorry if that's a silly question, I just want to be sure I understand how it all will work

What if not staying at a resort

I was not able to read all the previous information because there was so much! Can we get Magic Bands if we are not staying at a resort?
