Mobile Magic band upgrade

The rumours are you can upgrade magic bands from today. Does anyone know if this is true? Iíve just looked and itís still not available.

Thanks

Some people online are saying theyíve spoken to CMís and itís only for bookings made from today onwards and not those that have holidays reserved already- which is a bit unfortunate I thought, if true, as we can update the colours etc of magic bands up until quite late on canít we.
I would have thought it would have been on the website by now as things do kick in by 6am our time usually... but thereís still time I guess. I checked first thing too as Iím curious to see the full range. Fingers crossed

Exactly...

some people responding to some of the blog posts on the subject are saying they are going to cancel and rebook just to get one!

It would be cheaper to buy one once there, surely, than cancel.

It would be nice to have the choice, but I wont lose sleep.

I guess if they're US bookings they can cancel without any loss of deposit, then rebook. If it was the same price and not costing me anything the cancel, then I'd certainly consider it.

Can't understand why it's not being made available to existing bookings though

I canít believe Disney would want to miss out on all those extra $$$$. Think of all the people already booked whether itís for this year or next.
