Cheers.
AGREED. I refuse to pay for my room key/FP holder/charge card. Even at a "discounted" rate.

It is. And they will indeed.

Almost a pure money maker for Disney just for the bands themselves-to say nothing of the increased revenue per guest per day by making it so easy to spend $$$ by tapping your MB.

They got me. We're in for ones for our mid-June trip, but probably won't do it a second time.

Anyone have thoughts on doing these custom ones for AP bands v. Room ressie bands, or doesn't it matter? We have been declining both for a while as we have sooo many (kids actually made very long jump rope out of old ones).

With how dh likes to buy the full price ones, I'd rather get the discounted ones. But will we collect them all with our split stays....

I won't pay for my key to enter my room but I was trying to check it out to see what it was like. Donald Duck was all I could get to even with multiple tries.

I decided to see if I could get a look at this using Edge because Chrome continued to tell me the page had been removed. It opened in Edge. And for free bands I was given the choice of gray or green. That's a nice upgrade. Or not. Many choices to pay for though.

Doesnít matter. All active MBs that are linked to an MDE profile can be used interchangeably.

Yes, while I was on my regular computer so I tried it on my IPhone and lots of choices are missing, including all the ones I wanted. Assuming they are selling out.
