    Hello - we just booked our next trip for November 2017 and I'm trying to figure out whether we will be sent original Magic Bands or Magic Bands 2? I want to order the customized bands, so trying to plan ahead :) Thanks!

    Hi, Allison! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you so much for sending us your planning question. I also hope you are excited for your November vacation to Walt Disney World® Resort.

    I have great news! You will for sure be receiving the MagicBand 2 for your festive fall vacation. On my family's most recent trip, we had so much fun selecting our colors during the customization process because you can remove the middle "Mickey Head" RFID chip and interchange it with a different colored band. Just don't forget the middle piece needs to stay with the family member it is linked to, you can change out the band colors, but not the middle piece.  

    I also like surprising my family by using a nickname for their inscription on their MagicBand. For a November vacation, you could use funny Thanksgiving themed names that will make them laugh when they open the MagicBand box. 

    Also, don't forget to mark your calendar for your 180 day advanced dining reservation window and your 60 day FastPass+ selection window. 

    I hope this helps, Allison! Please let me know if you have any additional questions, I'm planning a November vacation myself so I am here to help.
