    Okay thanks...good to know we won't miss our chance to test the bands. Hopefully they won't cause too many headaches.

    Actually, it looks like you can still customize them until the 10th (or the 9th?) and choose your colors and have the names printed inside them. I don't know if they will then mail them to you or if you would receive them when you check in, but at least you can choose the colors.

    I'm staying at boardwalk villas on november 19 and we got the invite 3-4 weeks out and the focus is on Epcot rides right now and epcot DVC resort and guests be cause they want to see how well it works for us in the morning due to we enter epcot from International Gateway Entrance instead of the main gate and they were selecting smaller groups meaning our group is just 2 and some groups of 3 for this test cycle. Also there is a deadline to register for this so don't delay

    Are you talking about magic bands?? I'm lost as to what is available only to Epcot resort guests.

    I just came back and I was hesitant to use the bands but I have to say I really liked them. No fumbling around for room keys or park tickets

    Ugh, I know I posted this before, but it is nowhere to be found. Who knows where it may turn up???

    Anyway, I linked my party tickets to my DME, which I assume linked them to our MBs, before reading that you shouldn't. So now, I went in and deactivated them to, hopefully, alleviate the issues. I will reactivate them on party day. Do you think that will help or do you think the issues will still be there, because they are linked???

    I don't think its really an issue of activated or deactivated. The problem I've read about is with people thinking because they linked them they will be on the MB's. They won't. You'll just need to bring the physical tickets with you. I have them linked and active on my account as well.

    Great! Thank you! I thought I read that people's bands were prioritizing the party tickets over other tickets. I was planning on using my actual tickets for the party anyway. Thank you for clarifying .

    Sorry to hear it . . . hopefully you can go either very early or very late and get in fairly quickly.

    Thanks. We don't mind waiting. I did it on my trip last February and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere.

    Since you are in the UK, they will not ship. If it says you can still customize, you can do that. If you can't customize, gray bands will be waiting for you at check in. Either way, you will get your bands when you check in.

    How exciting that you get a last minute trip to DW! :thumbsup2

    Thats fantastic!

    Have personalized the magic bands- but decided to keep them gray anyway, was unsure how bright the other colors would be, am excited now!
