    I read about a family being a "test family" for the wristbands. How were they able to do this? Did they volunteer or were they chosen? We go in 30 days!!

    Hi Lynn!

    Your vacation will be here before you know it and I bet you're too excited to sleep already!

    We haven't been given any information on how Disney is selecting Guests to tests the MagicBands.  It seems that Guests may be chosen for a variety of reasons or it could just be one of those magical moments that happens at Disney.  If you have booked a vacation to stay on Disney property and are selected to tests the MagicBands prior to your trip, you will receive an email from Disney with information. If you are selected once you arrive on property, you will receive your information at that time.

    If you do get a MagicBand during your trip, keep in mind that they will be testing, adjusting and adding features to MyMagic+ and My Disney Experience over the next few months so it may not be seamless at first. I personally think it would be super exciting to be among the first to experience MagicBands and give them feedback on my experience. It would make me feel like I was a tiny bit involved in creating Disney Magic for future Guests.

    Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for updates.  If you're on twitter, you can also keep an eye on @DisneyParks and @WaltDisneyWorld which are two of Disney's official twitter accounts.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that you get to sport one of the cool MagicBands during your trip!

    Please feel free to visit again with any other questions. We'll be hEAR for you up until you embark on your pixie dusted trail!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
