I booked a room at OKW through my Vacation Club(RCI) can I still customize the bands for my family ahead of time or do I have to wait until I check in at the counter?
- Asked by monique from VA on 1/4/2014
I am so glad that used your RCI exchange to stay a Disney's Old Key West Resort. It is a lovely resort and I'm sure you are going to have a great time!
MagicBands are a part of the MyMagic+ initiative that Disney is rolling out. MyMagic+ is a great way for guests to connect many of the aspects of their Walt Disney World vacation. Because this is still in the testing phase, please know that anything I say here is subject to change.
I spoke with a cast member at Disney Vacation Club, who let me know that you will likely be a part of the MagicBands testing. She suggested that you monitor both your regular mail and your e-mail for an invitation to do so. Also, you should be sure to set up a My Disney Experience
account. You can use this to manage parts of your vacation such as your dining reservations.
You should receive a confirmation number for your Disney's Old Key West resort stay. When you receive that, you can enter this number into My Disney Experience. Then I would also suggest that you monitor My Disney Experience to see if the opportunity to customize MagicBands is offered there.
I hope that this information is helpful for you, Monique. Again, since this is all in testing phase, please know that it is subject to change. Have a wonderful time planning your Walt Disney World vacation, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
