    Do they just transfer from the existing band to the new band?

    You can have multiple bands active, and switch back and forth...My wife is excited about matching her and DD's bands to outfits, since we all have 3 sets now. LOL

    I am hoping to stumble on an OLAF?

    Can you order them online or can they only be bought in the parks?

    They can only be bought in the parks and have to be linked to A MM+ account or Ticket Media upon purchase.

    Then you just got lucky with a CM who forgot. They've been cracking down on making sure they get activated.

    I wasn't expecting any special effects while wearing my Haunted Mansion magic band, but the FP+ scanner played Grim Grinning Ghosts. It's not much, but I'll take it!

    Was this the only "extra" you noticed with the band. I was wondering if there were any surprises associated with the HM band since it on my must have list :goodvibes

    Not sure of supply and demand at this point, but the new HM gift shop, Memento Mori, had a bunch of these HM magic bands a couple of weeks ago. I had guessed they had sold out soon after first appearing, but apparently not. I would love to have one, but when you get regular ones for "free" and they want you to shell out $25 for this custom option, that's hard to swallow (for something I'd have no reason to wear/use other than while at WDW). Heaven knows we have made some questionable, spur-of-the-moment purchases at WDW over the years, but I just couldn't quite justify this one.

    Saw heaps of them yesterday at Memento Mori, the Emporium, and the pin shop in Frontierland.

    I believe they are limited release. No edition size was mentioned but they are limited.

    they have so many different terms for these themed magic bands it's hard to keep them straight. Some only have a thousand or two for sale others are for sale for a certain period of time some are sold all the time. I guess as long as they sell they'll keep putting them on the shelves.
