I had to do it in 2 orders - the first time, they had the bands that Hope and I liked, but not Julia. Luckily, since we had our room only reservation, I was able to order Hope and mine and get Julia her blue band. Then, I just kept trying with our other reservation and was able to snag Julia's today!I have been able to do two orders of two bands each. It took me checking every day multiple times a day before I could order them. It is very frustrating, and it's harder the more bands you want to order, because you have to get lucky enough to find a day when all the ones you want are available. I wish I could say I think Disney IT will fix this, but knowing Disney IT...
Good luck with the opening! I hope you can post some info to how everything going. I am dreading the same craziness of Toy Story Land. Friends of our were there on opening day and she said it was a 3 hour wait to just enter the "land". Not looking forward to that!I was able to several weeks ago- they came so quick too.
We will be there the week Star Wars opens. Depending on if we are able to do AP Previews- we will be there at 6:00 am either opening day or the 30th. If we are able to ride the ride during a preview- will likely not do opening.
It was frustrating! There were bunch of times I had all the bands I wanted, but then couldn't check out!!!Got ours, but it was definitely a struggle. I think I was checking multiple times a day for 2 weeks straight in hopes of being able to find bands we all liked plus actually be successful in checking out. Not an easy task!
Thanks for the tip - I just started to check all the time and refresh frequently. Crazy!We did but it was a mess. I brought my personal laptop at work and set it up to just constantly refresh until I found the one my daughter wanted. It took weeks (luckily I can close my office door lol.) Then it look over a week to ship so I thought maybe she would be stuck with the dreaded gray. Happily it shipped today. Frustrating though!
Wow - I would think they would have a better system before rolling it out. This seems to have a little bit more than just "kinks". lolWhat a nightmare this has been. I called and emailed several times. Once I got an IT lady and she told me I am not having any luck because I am trying too much! Huh?!? Cookies or something. She also said I was online at a very popular time. I told her I was up at 6am without luck. I also tried at midnight with no luck. Then the genius told me if all else fails I can buy them at shop Disney. Really???
I sent a very strongly worded email detailing all the flaws of this new MB program. I got a reply that told me to wait for August to order my September Magicbands as they are “working out the kinks”.
Ummm... Mac user here... I have no idea what you said. lolOne trick I was told that seem to work for me, and for someone else is to use google chrome and put yourself in "incognito mode" and then try. If you are already using chrome... there are 3 verticle dots on the top right, underneath the X if you click on those, it will give you an option to open a new incognito window. Try that... Crossing my fingers for you.
I was able to get my order in - but that was my next step going to Hope's computer which is a PC.
I thought Julia would like the Dole Whip one, but no - I was also able to get that in my cart yesterday, so I held off. Thankfully, I found hers today and it worked!! Do they not ship it because you are in Canada?We were able to buy the dole whip one last night. Not sure if Matt did anything different. But we pick it up at the hotel when we check in.
