This has to be the pinnacle of Disney IT failures. Half of the ones they say are available suddenly aren't when I select them, then even when I get the entire family lined up, it won't let me check out. I've tried different browsers, computers, etc... and nothing works.

I have one more day to try to get this to work and we will have to revert to standard bands. This is truly pathetic!

It was like that on the day I placed my order - I literally kept trying every free moment I could during the majority of my day/evening and it felt like Groundhog's Day until it finally went through. When it gives the "oops" message, try refreshing your browser instead of using the buttons provided by Disney. That seemed to hold on to the progress I had made before the system took its dives.

A number of Limited Release ($29.99 retail price) MagicBands are currently available as an upgrade, including the DVC Member MB. They cost $15.00 after the $14.99 credit.

Hello. Where do you see the credit applied?

Thanks.

I’m still trying for my haunted mansion wallpaper band.
Ugh!
It’s always almost there, but never with DH’s pirates band he wants!
I just received my AP band, the white MK “most magical place on earth” band. Really nice in person!
I think this is just a fun thing to spice things up a bit.
Hopefully they will handle the influx of interest soon!

Disney Food Blog had a video on magic bands today, discussing "upgrading" your magic band in particular.

As for me, I'm perfectly happy with solid purple.

I have tried off and on for two weeks and always get the “oops, try again”. Can you call? I notice some are gone and some new are there. What to do???

I came across this a few days ago. https://forums.wdwmagic.com/threads/...6#post-8770275 Maybe that approach will give you some success?

I've never purchased a Magic Band, but I thought this might be cool for my kids to pick one out for our next trip. But it's apparently a disaster. Unless it gets better I probably won't bother trying. It just doesn't seem worth the frustration.
