Clever way to make sure your MB's don't fall off..

This idea came from my DD13,
use the Cra-z-loom rubber bands as like a watch band loop.. You could easily match the colors and it works!

That's a great idea - we'll have to try that out. Again, I have to wonder sometimes who makes these final design decisions for Disney - maybe it was the same company that designed BLT with the bathroom sink and mirror in the kitchen.
As soon as we tried our MBs on DGrD10 even noticed that there was no secure way to keep these fastened. Once they have been used for a few trips and taken on and off day after day, I'll be very surprised if the holes don't stretch out even more. Could they not have designed a little band like watches have that slips down and secures the band? Oh wait, they are going to charge us for replacements if we loose them - I've never been charged for a lost or disabled ticket or KTTW card since 1972.

FWIW, my BIL's MB fell off in Space Mtn two Sat.s ago, his first ride in a 7 day stay. Luckily it was recovered by a CM.

They are just little colored rubber bands. Kids use them to make bracelets. They are super popular at our grade school.

Thanks for the great idea, OP!

I have been wearing mine every day for a month and have had no issues. It has never fallen off and the pegs are just as tight as they were on day one.

I agree the bands are pretty tight, but We figured for added security it couldn't hurt. There have been reports of losts bands.

I found two MBs in the UK and turned them in. Don't have any idea how they were lost, but I suspect beer was involved.

It will be one of THE most common upcoming complaints, especially from families with younger kids.

Basically just colorful orthodontic rubber bands. You can get a colorful pack of 300-500 in the hair-care section at Dollar Tree. My sister uses them to put her toddler in pigtails

Beer is always involved in the UK.
