Our Magic Bands arrived at Derek's this morning!! Since he made the reservation, they were shipped to his address. I figured he could bring them to the resort when we arrived to meet him......but I discovered they have our room & our Magical Express tied to the bands. So Derek now has to mail Mike's and my band.......lol I'm not sure if we'll be able to do any of the FP+ once we get there or not.....Derek will be signing us in, so no park tickets. I know doing the FP+ is something we could do if we had tickets. I'm wondering once Derek purchases the MNSSHP tickets if I'm able to link them in the Disney Experience and then get to pick FP+ at Magic Kingdom for that day??





We're getting really excited as in 3 weeks we'll be driving to Portland and staying at a motel close to the airport that allows us to leave our car in their lot during our trip.

so exciting!!

Yeah, I just heard you need them now for magical express. I had not realized that before.

I read that it is not recommended that you link your party tickets to your magic band, but you can always ask at guest relations

Either way, you are going have a great time!

I hadn't heard not to link the party tickets.......I figured that would be the only way we'd get to try the FP+. Guess we'll need to look into this more!

We will DEFINITELY have a great time!

I'm so excited........ I secured a Be Our Guest ADR this morning!!!! This after I had lost that same reservation about 30 minutes earlier. I've been going on & trying to get BOG or Cinderella's Royal Table for the last few weeks. (once we found out we had to change our Magic Kingdom day). So this morning, I'm checking availability and it came up with a 4pm dinner at BOG so I clicked on it immediately. Well then the WDW website decided to make me sign in again. After signing in, it kicked me all the way back to the beginning dining page and by the time I got back to BOG....the time was gone. I wasn't happy....I got beat by a website......ugh! So I decided after getting kids on the bus to try again and nothing, but a few minutes later the 4pm dinner time was available again......this time I got it!!!! Now, my fear is.....there's a bit of a glitch in their system......so I'm going to print out our confirmation and have it on me.....just in case!

Now if I can get lucky enough for someone to cancel a CRT breakfast time.......that would just be the extra sprinkles on our iced cake!!!

I can't believe it.........I just got Cinderella's Royal Table for breakfast on the 10th!!!!!! I'm in shock to get BOG & CRT, 23 days out!!! The Disney Dining CM I talked to after doing both of these, couldn't believe it either!! She said we should go play the lottery!!!

Wow! Great luck! Ironically, the ADR I had trouble with was Tusker House! I got BoG and Cali Grill with no problems but I had to fight for Tusker!

Ok wait...you can link DME your Magic Band!? I'm so afraid to start linking all my stuff! How do I know what's already linked?

Maybe I lucked out on that one too.....I got that one about 3 weeks ago (about the time I found out we had to switch our MK day due to castmember blackout days).

So go to the WDW website, click on My Disney Experience, click on Manage Magic Bands, click on each band separately and read down to see what has been linked to your bands. Magical Express and our resort room key are the only things on ours.....not sure why they didn't add our dining credits....but hopefully they can do that at check in. We didn't add anything to the bands ourselves.

With them being so new....I don't blame you. I think if you purchased a vacation package through Disney and you have the My Disney Experience.....all of that info would be on the bands already. If not, I know you're supposed to be able to link your tickets so you can do the FP+ choices but since our son is a CM at WDW.....he'll be signing us in at the gates and we don't have tickets. So even though we qualify for the FP+......we can't do them because of the no ticket thing.

I'm hoping things can be added at the resorts when we check in.....then it would be in their hands!!
