I'm sure you're right, but we aren't like that (not that I'm saying you thought we were) I just wanted to clarify, the girl even commented on how good natured we were being, the guy near her asked why she got the nice guests when he gets the bad tempered ones Wink

Returned tonight and we have chocolate dipped strawberries! Omg! Wonder what tomorrow will bring? Hahahahahahaha

The temperament of guests is really a hit or miss. Either they'll go off the handle if something goes wrong or they'll be grateful that it can be fixed.

We definitely fall into the latter!

They are literally small boxes made of chocolate. I don't know what is inside the box. I'm assuming more chocolate or some type of mint candy.

link to the photos. I'm having a hard time adding pics lately.

This was the first night gift at AKL when we tested the MBz, we ended up with two of them because Mousekeeping is awesome. The other card was snow white i think...it thanked us for giving feedback and for being testers.

Hey Troy, we are heading to the world at the same time as you are and I have no options to customise magic bands yet either. I will keep checking.

In preparation for being able to order magic bands for my mom and I, I called my mom tonight and told her I had a very important question to ask her. I explained what the magic bands were and the very important question was "what color would you like?". She's trying to decide which color will go best with the clothes she's bringing.

and your checking the MyDisneyExperience on the computer, not the app.
What resort are you staying at?
Did you book a package or room only?
Do you have ticket or AP?

Just trying to figure this out, if your ticker is right and you have 41 days, you may get the option tomorrow. From what I've been seeing a lot of people get the option at the 40 day mark for some reason, it odd.

Yes checking online not the app(but checking it too) logging in fresh every time as well.
Staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort.
Booked a package. Rooms, tickets and dining plan.

Well we actually booked a day early to get the free dining so we are at the 40 day mark on MyDisneyExperience. Looks like we are out of luck but we will keep watching

No I wouldn't say you were out of luck, you still have plenty of time, heck i just got emails on the 21 and yesterday saying we had until the 8th & 9th of Oct to customize our bands, but I already have them. On the MyDisneyExperience it only gave me until the 19th of Sept. They processed the first ones at 8:01pm on the 19th and had them in my had by 10:30 the next morning. I'd still keep watching.

Gosh they look good, except my heart sank when I saw UPS delivery, the last time I had anything delivered by UPS for Disney it was a horrible experience as we had to collect from the depot and it's not that near to us, with no parking waiting rats!

They won't deliver to you Sally-Ann? You don't have to sign for the bands.

This was for Troy above - It looks like maybe you are going in Nov also. We are going mid-Nov so at about 54 days today I think. I chatted with a CM since I wasn't sure when to expect seeing the magic band info but she told me nothing had been announced about Nov yet. I did our online checkin right at 60 days although that gives me an error every time on the last page even though it looks like our info was accepted. Now when I look it says modify online checkin and has our info in there so not sure what the error is about - I sent an email asking about that.
