What colour of MagicBand will you/did you choose?

We'll be arriving the last day of November, and the option to customize MagicBands just opened up for us today!

So, now I must make the ever-so-critical decision of what colour my band should be.

What colour did you and your family choose and why did you choose that colour? (Or, alternately, what colour will you choose, and why?)

can I choose NONE?

I hate wearing any kind of Jewelry. I've been married 18 years and the last day I wore my wedding ring was at the ceremony. If I go to concerts I get extremely irritated at wearing those tyvek wristbands. The last thing I want on me when I'm hot is a rubber wrist band that make me sweat even more.

we pretty much got them all. 2 orange, 2 grey, a pink, red, blue, yellow and 2 green. I wanted to see them all so I "encouraged" my party of 10 to get different colors. LOL

Me: Green (duh)
DH: Blue (though he switched from red to yellow to blue in a 14hr period)
MIL: Orange (good thing I asked, I would never have picked it for her - all I knew for sure was "not pink")
FIL: Yellow (but purple was the first choice - too bad it's not an option)

But you don't have to wear them! Just hook 'em on your belt.

Or alternately, don't get one at all. I saw something when I was clicking through about being able to exchange your band for a card.

Oh, here it is!

Quote:
Each MagicBand contains an HF Radio Frequency device and a transmitter which sends and receives RF signals through a small antenna inside the MagicBand and enables it to be detected at short-range touch points throughout Walt Disney World Resort. MagicBands can also be read by long-range readers located at Walt Disney World Resort used to deliver personalized experiences, as well as provide information that helps us improve the overall experience in our parks.

If you prefer, you may elect to use a card instead of a MagicBand. Cards contain a passive HF Radio Frequency chip and cannot be detected by the long-range readers.
So there you go! "None" is indeed an option.

Do you get a new MagicBand for each trip? I thought you were supposed to keep them to reuse on multiple trips.

We're a family of 7, and there are 7 colors, so we each have a different one.

I got pink because I have 5 sons. As the only female in the family, I'm always assigned pink. In fact, I purposely buy things in pink when I want to be sure that no one "borrows" my stuff.
