the Next Generation planning system is being said to be expanding to more Resorts at Disney World for the month of August Disney was only testing at four Resorts with the magic bands for a certain amount of guest and now have rolled over the testing for the month of September and October testing for the next period will Start Sept 3 through October 31. In order to participate in the next testing group Guest will have to book between those dates. There has been no word on whether Disney will continue to test them for the Month of Nov-December but they do expect to have completed the testing for all guest and available by the end of 2013. The New Resorts joining in on the testing goes as followed.
the testing isn't a full roll out but as it's coming to an end it will be expanding to the rest of the other resorts including DVC and Moderate Resorts that haven't been selected to be part of the Resort Test Group.
Happy Tuesday Ladies and Gentleman's today i am officially taking part of the magic band testing that is going on in select Resorts. As many people ask how can i go about getting my hands in one of these the way you receive these is you have to have a Resort Reservation to only the resorts taking part of the testing the best thing about these magic bands is having the ability to reserve your fast past 60 days out for testers you can reserve 30 days to 17 days before arriving to your resort. Above i have a screenshot of my reservations i have for Epcot which allows you to reserve V.I.P sections for illuminations fireworks and other sorts of attractions or character meet and greets. In the coming weeks i will have more details and video footage on how the system works.
By Now everyone knows Starbucks is the new sales plan to come to Magic Kingdom but now Fountain View has been in refurbishment for some time and its next to serve Star Sucks which i hear its already coming along smooth and should be up and running in the next couple of months. Disney Hollywood Studios is following along and will be next to add Star Bucks to their Menu .
I got some amazing news for this years Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party. Jack and Sally from Tim Burtons Nightmare before Christmas will make an appearance to Mickeys Not So Scary, the meet and greet will be held at Town Square on Main Street U.S.A. also joining in this year Mike and Sulley will host the Monstrous scream-o ween ball dance party on the Rockettower Plaza Stage in Tomorrowland. I'am beyond excited to hear this and i will be attending the Halloween Party come September 13.
I bring you another more recent update on the Magic Bands and MyMagic+ as well as fastpass+. Two well known bloggers got to test out the Magic Bands today and their video pretty much shows and goes into detail how these will be working once they get fully rolled out from switching your fastpass+ to opening your resort without the room key to buying food and beverages. Hope you enjoy it as i know i do because my trip is coming up and hopefully i will be testing it out since the contemporary resort is one of the testing resorts.
