Baleigh and I (and hopefully her friend Kaela) are popping down to Florida for a very short trip in two weeks. I booked the hotel on Wednesday night, and on Saturday a very official UPS overnight envelope arrived. Well, very official except for all the cute Disney stickers on it! Anyway, it seems we've been invited to test out the new MyMagic+ system while we're there...they're even going to send us bracelets! I went online Saturday and "customized" our bracelets, I can't wait to see them!

Hopefully Disney will have ironed out any glitches with the wristbands by now. [That is if they had any glitches.:shrug1:]
On our recent trip, Ricardo introduced us to one of his fellow CM`s who had one of the wristbands and was involved in testing them out. It`s amazing what technology is in place nowadays.

Looking forward to hearing what you think about the, I've read good and no so good reports.

Guess what was on my doorstep this morning when I woke up??

15758.vB

First impression: APPLE. The packaging (and eventually the contents) all had that minimalist yet classic and tasteful design I've come to expect from Apple products.

Again, the packaging was quite impressive. As I've come to expect from Disney - everything, everything is all about the experience. There was a distinct sense of excitement as I opened the box and then lifted the lid to find these:

15760.vB

Well made, well presented, quality bands. One size fits all, but still customizable (for children, or smaller wrists, the colored bit of the band can "snap out" of the grey bit and become a smaller wristband).

15761.vB

Just seeing our names below made us go :mental: :mental:

15762.vB

No mixing them up, even if they're the same color!

15763.vB

We tried them on and they seem quite comfortable. We're anxious to try them out! I just have to sort out what to do with them now!! LOL!

Well that didn't take long to arrive :D

I don't know that I'd been too keen about the white band you get when you take them off after the holiday :lol:

To be honest, I REALLY dislike bracelets of any kind (even shiny, sparkly ones) so I'm not at all sure how I'm going to do with these. But, as it's only a 4 day trip, we figure this is as good time as ever to give it a go and see how it plays out. I've just been online having a play with the scheduling system - it seems weird "scheduling" a fastpass and not even being in the park for two weeks.

I can imagine, it's one thing to book ADRs in advance but fastpasses, very strange :lol:

It really *is* "brilliant" :)

Talk about personalizing the experience...

I'll admit that I'm not 100% sold on the entire concept (at all), but the personalization component is definitely in the "win" column for me...and that's from someone who's been 25+ times...I can only IMAGINE what it would be like if it were your first trip.
