    There is a rumor going around that you can do both.

    Lol we didn't get the bands and are here at AKL now. Doubt we will get them in Nov unless they roll it out completely.

    I am in Magic Kingdom and I have my MagicBand and my room keys. I just used the keys to obtain fastpasses for BTM . You CAN use both the bands and room keys to get fastpasses.

    Very interesting, BH! Did you have to ask for your room keys, or did they just give them to you?

    So you've got a magic band and a key? I thought they were one and the same thing now....

    I didn't ask for the keys, I was given them at check-in. The cast member stated that eventually the band will be the only thing a guest will get but that because the MagicBand is in testing mode and that it still has a few kinks in it they give us the keys as a back up. I saw the band fail when I was in The Wave when a customer tried to pay with the band and the bartender asked for the key instead.

    At the beginning of the month we stayed at the Yacht Club, right now we are at the Contemporary. Got magic bands and keys to the kingdom both times. The cards are given as a back up in case the magic bands dont work.

    First trip, they didnt work for fp+ even though I made them online, they never worked at the parks.

    This time around we decided not to take chances and grabbed 1 regilar fo for toy story mania, used it and also were able to use the fp+ for the same ride

    So yeah, at least this time around we have usen both

    Fascinating how things differ from time to time. When we checked in we were only given the bands - not even offered the keys. Guess it's a good thing our bands worked without issue!
