    I am traveling 11/17-11/25 staying at OKW and it is hard to find out if they will still be dong testing there or not during that time. I have loaded all my reservations, tickets and did online check-in but we are just under 60 days from when knew a status?

    Hi Ashley,

    I love a stay at Disney's Old Key West Resort.  We were there last year in November, and it was such a lovely, relaxing setting for our vacation.

    I believe that you are asking about testing of MagicBands at Walt Disney World.  This is a really exciting time at Walt Disney World, as Disney continues to roll out parts of MyMagic+, designed to connect many of the parts of your vacation experience.  Currently, MagicBands are in the testing phase.  As such, I do not have any information on which resorts will be testing at which times.

    It sounds like you already have your vacation plans in My Disney Experience, which is great.  I suggest that you keep checking back on My Disney Experience, as some guests have discovered there that they have been selected to test the MagicBands.  Others have heard via e-mail, and some Disney Vacation Club members have been notified via UPS.  I suggest monitoring these channels to see if you have been selected to test MagicBands.  

    If you are not selected to test the MagicBands, do not worry.  I just returned from a trip to Walt Disney World where we were not selected to test MagicBands.  Everything worked just as seamlessly as it always had for us in the past using our Key to the World Cards and Annual Passes.

    I hope that this is helpful for you, Ashley.  Have a great time planning your trip, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
