Well hi there! First of all, please excuse the lack of updates the past two weeks. My office department has two people out on extended vacations at the same time AND we got a “special project” so it’s been just a big happy jumble of overtime. Honestly I’m not sure I even remember who I am right now!
Anyhow though, in between all of that I’m still going to Disney World… next week, in fact… in four days in fact. (Tiny yay in the background!) And, because I’m doing a single night at Animal Kingdom Lodge, on points donated to me by a friend who is a DVC member, I actually ended up being selected to test the MagicBands that Disney World is planning on rolling out sometime in the next few months. It seems as if nearly everyone staying on site this coming month gets to try these, but hey, for those of you who don’t hang out on Twitter with people who go to Disney World on like a weekly basis, this is a much rarer opportunity!
Anyway. So I haven’t had time to blog about them or anything (although this post at My Disney Addiction does a better job than I could anyway), but I will go over the whole experience when I have time. I DID, however, have time late the other night to record a vlog of me… well, talking about them a lot and kind of holding the up for you to see, in really bad lighting and bad quality. Yaaaay!
In all seriousness, it is at least slightly informative. If nothing else you’ll learn that I have trouble fitting them on my wrist and the plastic is more solid than I thought it would be.
But mostly, you should watch it because the camera just loves me! Obviously.
I promise that I will post about my experience setting up my FastPass+ reservations, and my experience editing them the next day (and possibly my experience editing them again if I go that route… because yes, you can edit them as needed), and also my experience with how the bands work. But it won’t be for a while, because I have crazy overtime, then crazy packing, then MAH VACATION and nobody’s taking that away from me!
