My DH wants the SWGE band, my sister wants the 2019 Mickey & Friends band, and I would like the castle band. I’ve been able to do two out of the three at best. They do, indeed, seem to change availability somewhere around :43 past the hour. So there I am refreshing my browser every hour, like playing a slot machine waiting for triple cherries! Do we HAVE to have them? No. But now it’s a frickin’ quest!I'm not alone in thinking this system for magic band orders where the stock randomly changes and it's nearly impossible to get what you want is insane, right? I mean, no one at Disney thinks this is how it ought to work, surely?
I had the same experience for the 3 in my family. Once I discovered you could buy them through the App, I just left the app open on my phone and refreshed periodically through the day. Eventually it worked! Perseverance.I've never seen more than 22 options at any one time, counting the 8 solid color options that are always there.
For my group of three, I've never seen the three we want at the same time.
When I've seen two of the three we want, only one of the two has actually been available to order. When I go to pick the other one, it lets me pick it initially and then says "just kidding! try again!"
