    Mickey MagicBands +

    Does anyone know when they are going to start using the MagicBands? We are traveling to WDW in June and really want to use them. In my Disney Files Magazine, it says you can go online and personalize your band, but I cannot do that until they are rolling them out (not just trial).

    They are the wrist bands that are used to get into the parks. They are in testing right now. I was wondering if anyone know when they would start making them available to the guests.

    Once they actually give the bands to people they will work immediately. Annual psssholders are already being switched to rfid plastic passes and those who wish to will be able to exchange their current paper passes for plastic rfid chip ones. Then soon annual passholders will start getting the magic bands to replace the passes, if they want to. I'll be switching mine this month to rfidv so I can enter via the new turnstiles made just for rfid passes and bands.

    You'll be able to take them off. Plus their will be many styles you can choose from at extra cost. Plus their also going to have other accessories if you don't like the bands. Things like watches, and bracelets from famous accessory manufacturers.

    There's a good chance yes. Pretty sure they have been doing random testing. When you get there if you don't get them it can't hurt to ask. Good luck. And have a magical time.

    Really? Because i was just there end of Feb and i am a passholder with paper tickets. I went to Guest services and they told me that they couldnt give passholders the new plastic cards yet. That we'd be receiving more info via email or mail and i havent heard anything. i was so disappointed cause regular guests got to get them and i as a passholder couldnt. Ill be back in April so hopefully ill be able to then.
