    I bought Magic Bands for our upcoming trip. I linked them all successfully by the ID numbers but when I look at them on MDE, the pictures for the solid color ones are correct but the others (with designs) show the same generic yellow band. Is this correct?

    Hiya Meryl! and welcome to planDisney. Thank you for bringing your question to the Most Magical Disney vacation planning group on the internet. 

    Deco design MagicBands add a little bit of flair to your Disney Theme Park experience. In addition to thousands of different designs created over the years, some MagicBands also have a "surprise and delight feature" that triggers different sounds at different attractions or theme park entrances. Some of my Deco design MagicBands have initially shown up in My Disney Experience as one of the solid base colors. It will resolve and the correct image will appear as new design images are loaded into the system. It may not happen before your trip but be assured that as long as the correct number is linked to the Guest it will get them access to the theme parks and Lightning Lane entrances.

    planDisney Pro Tip: I am not sure which MagicBands you have purchased, but if they are MagicBand+ then get ready for some real fun. MagicBand+, with its vibration, gesture recognition, and custom LED color-changing lights, can be used in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge on missions to find bounty hunters in Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters (Disney's Hollywood Studios) as well as in all four theme parks as you interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection.

    Please stop back by with any more questions to help with your enchanted Disney vacations.

    Meryl, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
