    I remember reading somewhere they might start doing some initial testing in Feb. Just wondering if anyone has seen anyone else use them yet.

    We just got back and nope not yet! I think it's getting fairly close though as all credit card readers and the entrances to the parks have the symbols that match. :)

    As part of the test and adjust process for MyMagic+, a test that includes MagicBands will take place Feb. 17-19.

    Cast Members acting as Guests will be staying at Disneys Animal Kingdom Lodge as part of the test.

    The test will include in-park activity at Disneys Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Test participants will use MagicBands to touch to enter their rooms, touch to enter the park, touch to redeem FastPass+ selections and touch to pay (except table service restaurants).

    MagicBands are a valid form of room entry, park entry, payment and FastPass+ redemption. Cast Members should proceed as they would with any other Guest using a Key to the World card.

    Just CM testing at the parks at this point. They attempted to roll the bands out a a couple of specific resorts. But there were so many problems, that round of testing lasted less than a day.
