I can't find the specific thread I was reading before where a lot of people were discussing getting bands without an email and such.. We are staying at the YC - checking in Aug 18th. Noticed through MDE that we had the ability to book FP+ and customize MBs, so we did.. It now says out MBs have been shipped and have a tracking number. No email yet about the test, we are not yet at that 17 day mark but it leads me to believe that others that are staying at YC or other test resorts in the time frame set for the test that were able to set it up but hadn't hit the 17 day mark yet may still get their customized bands.. Possibly even before they get their email. Again, couldn't find the thread about all of this so if someone already posted similar information I am sorry - just wanted to let everyone know. PLUS I am excited to get my Magic Band!!
