Got to say, the Magic Bands work really, really well. Pick them up at check in on Friday, already bought Em's an "add-on" for hers(Disney are sooooo clever at adding revenue streams) used the for the room, getting in to the parks, fast pass, dining...... no problems what so ever. They also fit me and stay on!!! which is a major think I was worried about.

Yeah they worked great for us too, never had a problem. The one thing we never did with them was charge anything back to the room.

Yeah when I called them they said you could add gift cards to the magic bands online but I don't see where you can do that. We will just have them add them once we get there if able cause I don't want to screw anything up....LOL

What you saw in the picture is all they have at the moment. They are available in resorts and in the parks but every place has the same selection.

No we didn't and they take you off the waiting list a week before your trip... But I check every day and we will also check when we get there

a big thank you to you all.

And yeah... just a tiny update. Isnt too much but Jess found out that there is an opening at Old Key West but it isnt for the whole trip. So when we get to AKL were going to see if we can split the stay up. I dont think we will be able to... but were going to try.

As for that.... I have a couple more hours here at work, then im cut loose. This day is just going by sloooooooooooooooow.

The bands worked fine for us after the initial hiccup. I even swam in mine and it was fine. We found a sorcerer Mickey addition on the floor and so I tried wearing it and it just kept falling off. It caught on things really easily. Have a great trip enjoy yourselves

Wow guys! What an awesome surprise! Are you still going to try and get a room at OKW? Or do you think now that you have that awesome view, that you will just stay put?

We had them check when we got here and there wasn't anything... I'll keep checking every day but I'm not holding my breath on anything coming available
