    We are traveling to WDW in January 2014, and I'm reading about the magic bands. Are they available for everyone now? or are they still in the testing phase? Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer!

    I'm so thrilled for you to be traveling from snowy Illinois to the Most Magical Place on Earth next month. The MagicBands are certainly an exciting aspect of Disney Parks' newest technology. Yes, they are still in testing phases so I cannot guarantee your travel party will be selected to participate, however I'd suggest setting up a My Disney Experience account in the meantime. I noticed my account was allowing me to select FastPass+ options and customize MagicBands. A few days later, I was notified via mail and email. It seems guests have been notified in different ways and at different times. (some 30 days, some 60 days, etc). 

    Whether or not you utilize MagicBands, Jennifer, I'm certain you'll have a simply magical time at Walt Disney World! Best wishes and please send us any last minute planning questions coming to mind.
