    Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong section....

    When I logged into MDE today it said i could customize our Magic Bands! (weeeeeee!)

    BUT

    It's only listing grey as a choice.... is that the only color they offer online or am I missing something?

    Thanks for any help!

    1- I've seen that complaint before (yesterday, I believe.)

    2- Nope. That's been the only choice for those who have NOT customized their bands in advance
    but have just gone to their WDW resort and had bands assigned after arrival.

    Don't know what is your situation, but it might change if you wait a bit,
    or log out, then log back in.

    I just customized mine this morning and had all color choices except purple (which I thought was an option but maybe not).

    Possibly a glitch yesterday? Maybe check again...

    Good luck pixiedust:

    What are your options? I have a few weeks before my December band shows up but I was able to choose my fp+ choices. :confused3

    Your countdown has your trip over 60 days out, that may have something to do with it.

    We live locally and are DVC members, so we visit often. I have 5 stays booked between now and April 2014. A few days ago the link showed up for the April stay with only the gray as an option.

    MB links for my 2 Dec stays have now shown up correctly. I would wait until you are at least at the 60 day check-in window before you get concerned and contact IT about it.

    thanks laura! will do!

    we didn't do a package this time around, so i still need to order our park tix and link (we're going back and forth on adding an extra day or two to our trip), so that might be mucking things up too.:scratchin

    purple was not an option

    options are:

    Blue
    Pink
    Red
    Green (to me sort of a lime green)
    Yellow
    Orange

    and of course Gray!

    Excuse the quick thread hijack... :)

    I thought there was a purple one too but after a bit of searching it seems the colors are:

    Green, Blue, Pink, Yellow, Orange and Red

    And of course the infamous Grey.

    I assume you have an AP? I was wondering as I didn't know how it worked with DVC members & AP holders.

    We check in on 12/27 and I had was able to customize bands today, even though we are still 69 days out. I had all color options. Very curious.

    Also, I like the gray bands. They go with everything!

    You can get MB free if you are staying at a WDW resort.

    After the full rollout (no, we don't know when that will be,) any guest
    at WDW will be able to purchase a MB (no, we don't know how much they will cost.)

    Make sure you click Done when you are finished. That lets them know that you have completed customizing your bands. They will not ship out until your customization window ends, no matter when you do them, and you can go back in at any time and change things.

    Once your customization window ends you will see a message that says the bands are being processed. Right now they are sending them out the evening after your window closes and you get them by 10:30 the next morning. There have been rumors that they will send them USPS once everything is rolled out, but right now they are over-nighted via UPS.
