Yeah that could very well have something to do with it too. The site says they are testing through Oct 31.

IAPanther, is that the page with the credit card info on it. I always have to re input my credit card info for some reason even though they have it on file. once I do that, the error goes away.

Just checked my disney experience - still nothing sad
We are staying at OKW resort, which may not have been involved in the testing, but I thought all resorts were being given Magic Bands after 31st October?

i spoke to a reservation specialist on Friday asking if magic bands were available for us folks staying in Fort Wilderness (Campground not Camping cabins), I was told that they would not be available for about another 30 days, and that there were 15 resorts not yet rolled out....

Gosh they look good, except my heart sank when I saw UPS delivery, the last time I had anything delivered by UPS for Disney it was a horrible experience as we had to collect from the depot and it's not that near to us, with no parking waiting rats!

They won't deliver to you Sally-Ann? You don't have to sign for the bands.

UPS here normally make you sign but they won't leave it as there is nowhere secure to leave it and We are out all day. Hoping that as it is only 21 days to go may not send it and we pick up from the resort.

Ours finally did too. We arrive on Nov 16 and have until Oct 17 to customize. Just wondering has anyone "bought" any of the add-ons to put on their bands. Do they attach securely or fall off easily??

We got ours the other day. I picked orange, DH picked red! I love them. I'm hoping to get a second set for my Xmas bucket list trip in December with my parents, but I heard somewhere that if you have a pacemaker or defib, you can't use them. My dad has a unit that is both, so I guess he won't be able to use his magic band. Kind of a bummer for him!

This is what I found Kris:

Are there any medical contraindications with using the MagicBand?

The MagicBand packaging does include a few medical notices, particularly for guests using implanted pacemakers or cardioverter-defibrillators. If you use these or any other medical device such as an insulin pump, neurostimulator, or hearing aid, you're encouraged to seek medical counsel about RFID interaction with your physician and/or your medical device manufacturer. Please read the warnings enclosed with your MagicBand.

Still nothing sad
Am I looking in the right place? I am clicking on magic bands in the right hand list on the MDE website (not app).
I guess OKW is not getting magic bands yet?

Magic do you mean what they are? Some people have posted pictures of some of the add on stuff, but they don't sell the stuff in the Disney store online yet.

I saw a pic somewhere. There was different covers for the bands and these charm things that pop in the holes. Remember the rubber watches where the bands had the holes and the other side you had the little plastic knobs sticking up that you just pressed into the holes? Same thing, so I guess the charms have little knobs to pop in the holes.

I was referring to the charms, decorations or ways to spruce them up with bling
biggrin

And what I was really fishing for is if there is any Evil Queen charms as I am still pouting that the bands
don't come in purple waiting

There are some sleeves that you put on them I am hoping purple will be an option. There were some examples on you tube. For those that are crafty I but you could easily sew some covers, they are very small so wouldn't take much more than a fat quarter of fabric. I saw some muppets and mickey and Minnie items didn't see any villians yet but the Bandits are going to join the realm of Pins and vinalmation of collectables and they know we love our villians. So how far can they be. I wonder if Mandy has seen any Halloween themed Bandits yet?

Our Magic bands appeared on our 'My Disney Experience' on Wednesday for our trip in November. We got our colours choosen and our names put on them, but we'll have to wait until we get to the resort to get them because they don't ship to the UK before hand.
