I am soooooo excited!  I ordered ours the other day.  I got pink and Meredith got green Smile  Today, I pulled out the tickets I ordered before prices went up from Undercover Tourists, and linked them.  I'm not ready to pick FastPass+ times yet, but I can't wait to do it!  I need to "review" that info first anyway.  Plus, when you log onto MyDisneyExperience, you have your countdown clock.  33 days now!!!

Now if I can just remember where I wrote down the confirmation number for our culinary demonstration, I'll be in great shape lol!

They are very cool looking! I have a friend testing them this week...can't wait to hear what she thinks! I spoke to our AAA agent last week when I paid the vacation off and she called Disney while I was there...Right now they are 'testing' the Magic Bands until November 30th according Disney so I am still crossing my fingers that we can get them!

Oh, they're so cute - love how they come in a box with your names on the packaging, even. Disney really knows how to make things feel special...

Oh those are cute! (I could see them on Photo Bucket, just had to arrow through) I'm hoping we get to use them in March since I always dread having to dig the cards out of my purse and put them away again. 

Your trip is so close - can't wait to hear all about it when you get back :)

Melissa,

I made sure that I added our reservations to my Disney account online.  I had booked through Mouse Fan Travel.  My travel agent actually sent me an email about it.  It was a PDF from Disney saying that we had been selected to try them.  However, it had nothing about us specifically on it; definitely a generic letter.  If I were you, I would contact your rep at AAA and see if they can find out anything about it for you.

And YAY!  They came yesterday!  I love that they have our names on the inside.  And mine is spelled correctly!  Let's see if I can upload a pic. <a href="http://s204.photobucket.com/user/mbbowen/media/IMG_1845_zps8735f6aa.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb241/mbbowen/IMG_1845_zps8735f6aa.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_1845_zps8735f6aa.jpg"/></a>.  Ok, I don't this is working, so if anyone can tell me how to do it, tell me!  I uploaded to PhotoBucket, but I don't know what to do now Frown

Oh, how fun!!!  I'm not thrilled about FP+ (just not that great of a planner!), but the magic bands are cute/fun.  You'll have to let us know how it goes!

Oh man.  That sounds like fun for Mitchell.    Not a lot of time left to change his father's mind.   Good luck!

We are going on Princess next summer.

How exciting! How did you find out you were eligible? I really want to try them, although I am not so sure about the new fast pass + system... We are staying at AKL bout didn't book through Disney because we booked before Disney announced their discounts so we used the AAA one. I wonder if that will make it so I can't use the magic bands? We are 80 days out and have everything on the Disney Experience app as well but it won't let me do anything with the Magic Band section.
