    So we check in to Pop in 4 days and today I received an email from Disney Destinations saying that we are receiving MAGICBANDS when we check in and that we can start planning our fast passes+ right away. So I booked all of our passes (3 a day plus 1 extra in MK) for our entire trip. My daughter wanted to know what colors we were getting so i called Disney and was told that they will probably be grey. I also asked if I would able to use the fast pass system as well as the fastpass+. I was told that I will have our regular tickets to use in addition to the MAGICBANDS. I think that being able to use the fast pass and fastpass+ at the same time will benefit us tremendously in terms of being able to ride the popular attractions more than once and being able to make the most of our time in the parks.

    Well, that's pretty interesting.

    I just checked "My Disney Experience" and lo and behold, I could customize our Magic Bands and make FastPass+ reservations.

    We're only going to be there for one day after our cruise so this was a bonus since our primary objective was that my DW wanted to see the new Fantasyland. So, made our FP+ ressies for "Under the Sea", "Enchanted Tales with Belle", threw in the HM since that's a necessity and Disney threw in a freebie in the form of IASW.

    So, bands customized, FP+ made.
    I really didn't think we'd even be eligible since we're only staying for one day.

    Awesome!! We just found out last night they are giving us MagicBands, so we went on and customized and started planning FastPasses. I didn't realize we were going to be able to use FP+ as well as regular fastpass! That is so exciting! I can't wait for ours to get here!

    I think fastpass plus is instead of fastpass. I don't think you can have both.

    We were not given tickets or cards of any kind. When asked what I should do if we had any problems while out and about with our bands, we were simply told to find a CM and they would assist us.

    Using both was not an option.

    Wouldn't be the first time a cast member was wrong but that is what I was told. I will definitely let you guys know for sure.

    LOL, isn't that the truth. And your experience may well be entirely different than ours! I will say they were a major benefit to us over the last few days. Have a great time, BH!

    I am so jealous. Was actually considering paying the extra 120 and adding tickets to my reservation with Disney to try and get the bands lol

    Ours arrived yesterday!

    Oddly enough, they look almost exactly like Becca's. And everyone else's.
