News Disney to offer discount on new MagicBand designs as an optional alternative to complimentary solid color MagicBands

There was just another bump of additions.
Most of which aren’t actually available.

Just because you see a band in the list, even seconds after the hourly refresh, you can't assume it's actually available. In fact, you should assume it's not available.

I finally got the one I wanted for my solo trip. I had been trying since this offer began. I made it to the checkout several times with it but somehow it was no longer available when I clicked on the complete order tab. Glad it's done.

I’ve been out of the country for a week and just tried 20 minutes ago when I got home. No idea how it worked for the haunted mansion band, but we’ll see if it actually shows up. Interestingly, I was actually in Disney springs today as we had a couple of hours to kill between our cruise (not disney) and our flight to the DC area. I was not able to find the band in person, but didn’t try all that hard.

very poor system.. tired of getting to check out and something is out of stock.. tried different ones...also out of stock at checkout. There were 61 available....how can so much be out of stock 10 seconds after they were posted.

So I successfully ordered today. Gave up on one of our party and got them a solid color one, leaving only two "special" bands to order. We got a confirmation page and everything. Now we'll see what I actually get in the mail! o_O

Same thing occured to DW & I. I was able to "snag" a DVC band. Tried to get one for DW. "Out of Stock".

This is just a rotten Web process. It could be corrected by following the "lock" process used by Restaurant Reservations:

1) My Bands
2) "What's in stock" (pick how many: 1-X).
3) Assign them to: pick people (you have x minutes - and your picks are "locked" for that amount of time).

Current system is hunt & pray - resulting in multiple MB Reservations for the same trip. Having gone through "hunt & pray" about 6 times? I'm hoping WDW does not end up sending my family 6x2=12 free Magic Bands for one trip in NOV :(. I keep getting new order numbers - all free :(.

Bad for WDW, and probably bad for us :(. I'm actually now afraid to even TRY to upgrade :(.

I'll also chime in with the about a week party! Took me only a couple of days to get my email, and about a week to receive the MBs.

(and as a reminder, if you ordered just the free ones, those won't ship until closer to your trip!)
