How to personalize your MagicBand


I wanted to try a couple of ways to personalize my family's MagicBands for our upcoming trip. I tried two different methods and will report how each holds up during our trip to Disney World later this month. So far I think the ones made with temporary tattoos are going to last the longest. (I will post an update after our trip at the bottom of the post to let you know how each held up.)

After applying stickers or tattoos you must paint the MagicBand with clear top coat nail polish to seal it. Be carful not to cover the area with the Mickey head in the center of the MagicBand. This is the area with the RF (Radio Frequency) reader that makes the MagicBands work. I suggest applying the polish while the band is closed (or at least making a circle) This will lessen the chance of cracking when it bends. 

Pros and Cons of each

Temporary Tattoos

Pros: 

  • More variety to choose from
  • Cheaper
  • Easier to apply
  • Easier to fit within edges of band
  • Doesn't peel off
  • Easier to add holes for snap
Cons:

  • Color not as vibrant
  • More likely to ruin tattoo if not placed exactly right
  • Requires water
  • Hard to judge placement due to placing facedown 

Stickers

Pros:
  • Vibrant colors
  • Easier to judge placements
  • Easier to remove and replace before final coat
Cons:
  • Less variety to choose from
  • Cost is higher
  • Requires multiple layers of nail polish
  • Hard to cut down to size of MagicBand
  • More likely to peel off
  • Hard to make holes for snap

The Monster's Inc. and Phineas and Ferb MagicBands were made using tattoos. 


To apply the tattoos, simply follow the instructions and apply as if it were skin. I used my pocket knife to cut the tattoo along the edge between the color section and gray section. I then used a damp cloth to rub off any access tattoo that may have stuck to the outer edge. After it was dry to the touch (within a minute) I painted on a layer of clear top coat nail polish. 
Note: be sure to remove the thin clear protective sheet on the tattoo before applying the tattoo. If you don't you'll end up with a tattoo stuck to that instead of your MagicBand. I learned that lesson the hard way. 
Note: Lighter MagicBand colors will most likely work better with tattoos.

To apply the stickers I simply placed them where I wanted. I found it very important to cut the stickers down to the size of the colored section of the MagicBand. I applied the stickers first then cut them while they were on the MagicBand. To do so I used my pocket knife, but a pairing knife would work just as well. Be sure not to cut too deep or you will go thru the band. Once the stickers had been applied and cut to size I painted on 3 layers of clear top coat nail polish. The stickers are thicker and can come up easier if you don't have multiple layers to hold them down. 
Note: if any of your stickers cover any of the holes, you will need to seal the holes from the other side with nail polish and you will not be able to use those holes to close the MagicBand. If you do not seal them, water can get in and get between the band and sticker and cause them to fall off sooner. 
Note: You must use plastic stickers as the paper ones will disolve when wet. 


The Tigger, Princess, Mickey and Fab 5 MagicBands were made using stickers. 









I found these clear plastic backed stickers at Hobby Lobby. Prices ranged from $1.97-$4.97 each

These sheets of tattoos were only $.99 each at Party City

















UPDATE: The bands held up really well! We also had no issues with the bands working. I was a little worried because I put a small sticker and enough nail polish to hold it on just over the center Mickey Mouse that you touch to all the scanners, but it did not effect it. The MagicBands with temporary tattoos looked exactly the same on our last day as our first day. (We were there 9 days.) The ones with stickers mostly held up. At least one sticker on my youngest son's began to peel up, but remained on. I had a little peeling on mine near the edges, but you had to mess with it to notice. My oldest son's band was completely void of stickers by our last day. He is 15 and is very fidgety and just couldn't leave them alone as they began to peel. We did not wear our bands in the shower or to sleep. This might make them not last as long, but you never know. They were just to bulky and uncomfortable, so we took them off once we were in the room for the night and put them back on on our way out. I would imagine the stickers might peel more if in water a very long time. The tattoos should be perfectly fine in water though. Knowing what I learned this trip, I think next trip I will stick to temporary tattoos. They were cheaper, easier to find and I don't have to worry about them possibly pealing off. But if I find really awesome stickers that I love I may use them too! One thing I did notice is that hardly anyone else had personalized MagicBands. We got so many compliments from cast members and others in line wanting to know where I got them. They were all really impressed that they were homemade and often asked how to make them. It was also a nice way to start a conversation with the face characters. All the princesses noticed my daughters band and used it as a way to get her to warm up to them.

Feel free to let me know if you personalize yours and with what characters in the comment section below.

For the past 6 years Indy Disney Meet has organized an annual gathering of Disney fans. Each year people from all over the country gather to enjoy a day of Disney chatting, games, food, pin and vinylmation trading, prizes, kids' activities and more. 

Indy Disney Meet will also be raising money for Give Kids the World Village of Central Florida thru games, raffles, and other activities. 


The event is FREE to anyone wanting to attend. They do ask that you bring a pitch-in dish. You can contact the event organizers to let them know that you will be attending and bringing a dish, so they don't end up with 100 seven-layer dips. You may contact them through their facebook page HERE

To learn more about the event and get updates please CLICK HERE.

If you are traveling from out of town, Indy Disney Meet has arranged for a great deal at a local Cambria Suites. 
Here is the info from the Indianapolis Disney Meet information page.
The Cambria Suites is the preferred hotel for the Indianapolis Disney Meet. Located 4 miles from the meet location the Cambria Suites is right across the street from the Hamilton Town Center shopping mall with convenient dining and other entertainment options. Rooms are available for $119 plus tax per night for King Suites and $129 plus tax per nigh for Double Queen Suites. Prices include a breakfast buffet each morning for up to 4 guests in your room. Ask for room block Give Kids the World when booking. 

Airport Information
The Indianapolis Internation Airport is located on the Southwest side of Indianapolis. The Indianapolis Disney meet is located on the Northeast side of Indianapolis. The two locations are in opposite corners of the city. A rental car is recommended unless you have other means of transportation around the city. Indianapolis does not have a mass-transit system. 


I personally recommend the Drury Inn and Suites Northeast in Indianapolis (There are 2 Drurys in Indianapolis, but only this one has a pool and suites.) 8180 N Shadeland Ave - Indianapolis, IN, 46250 - P: 317-849-8900 F: 1-888-892-5084

I live in the area and go to this hotel with my family just for the fun of it. They offer GREAT rates, a fun indoor/outdoor pool, are kid and pet friendly, super nice staff and a bunch of freebies. The breakfast is a large buffet as is the evening kickstart which also includes 3 FREE "adult" per guest(21+) per night.

New Frozen events, characters, activities and more coming to Disney's Hollywood Studios for Summer!!!!





This event has been extended to September 28th.
Note: The "frozen" Fireworks Spectacular will only take place on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays after September 5th.

Looks like Olaf will finally get to enjoy Summer. He, Anna, Elsa and Kristoff will be making appearances in Hollywood Studios begining July 5th and running through September 28th. 
Here are the highlights of the new Frozen fun from the Disney Parks Blog:
  • Olaf on Summer Vacation – Olaf the snowman is having the time of his life on his very first summer vacation! He chimes in throughout the day to keep everyone updated on all his adventures. Plus, you can pick up your very own Take-Along Olaf from locations in the park, so he can join you on your summer vacation. And when you share your photos with Olaf on social media, be sure to tag them with #OlafSummerVacation. They may just get selected to appear in that day’s grand finale!
  • Anna and Elsa’s Royal Welcome – At 11:00 a.m. each day, Elsa and Anna arrive in Hollywood as part of their goodwill tour of neighboring kingdoms, making their way down Hollywood Boulevard in a horse-drawn sleigh. Kristoff is along for the fun, too, joined by a flurry of skaters, skiiers, ice cutters and more! The entire procession culminates in a special moment at the Sorcerer’s Hat Icon Stage to officially welcome the visiting royalty to this kingdom of Hollywoodland.
  • For the First Time in Forever: A “Frozen” Sing-Along Celebration – Cool down inside the Premiere Theater, where Anna and Elsa join the Royal Historians of Arendelle for a fun and comedic retelling of the unique history of their Kingdom, filled with delightful, sing-along moments from “Frozen.”
  • Wandering Oaken’s Trading Post & Frozen Funland – Inside Soundstage One, Oaken and his cousins have created a Frozen Funland filled with cold weather activities, unique photo opportunities, and more! There’s a frozen pond with ice skating demonstrations, wintertime fun for kids in the “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” play area, a “big summer blowout” with plenty of “Frozen” merchandise, and special “Frozen”-inspired food and beverage offerings.
  • “Coolest Summer Ever” Dance Party – Starting at 5:30 p.m. each day, a dance party takes over the area around the Sorcerer’s Hat Icon Stage, with a DJ, live band, and more! The band plays a variety of classic and contemporary summer rock & roll hits, as well as a cool, rocking medley of “Frozen” favorites. It’s going to be hot!
  • “Frozen” Fireworks Spectacular – Everything wraps up at 9:45 p.m. when Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf come together at the Sorcerer’s Hat Icon Stage for a grand finale to the day’s festivities, kicking off an awe-inspiring fireworks display set to the glorious music of “Frozen!”

I'm really hoping this is just the beginning of more Frozen experience and character meet. This should also help with the insane traffic and wait times for Anna and Elsa in Magic Kingdom and spread crowds across the parks.

You can know book a Premium Package for this event. The Frozen Summer Fun Premium Package, is available daily July 5 – September 1, 2014 (not available August 23). Packages for the newer dates will be announced soon. Call with Disney to see if they are available.

(Note: Anna and Elsa’s Royal Welcome procession and the dessert party offers a reserved viewing area, no seating is available. Wheelchairs and ECVs will be accommodated).

Packages cost $69 for adults and $34 for children (including tax and gratuity). Discounts do not apply. Park admission is required. Subject to restrictions and change without notice. Book this package now by calling 407-939-1939.

Cinderella's Royal Table closed for refurbishment thru March 7th, 2015. Here are 3 alternatives for dining with princesses.

UPDATE: Cinderella's Royal Table has reopened. 

It was just announced that the very popular restaurant in Magic Kingdom that offers a character meal with Cinderella will be closed for refurbishment from January 5th, 2015 through early March. Cinderella's Royal Table is expected to reopen March 7th, 2015.

Below are two great alternatives. (Disney just added a third temporary option. More info below.)
(If you are on a Disney Dining Plan that offers sit down tables services, you can theoretically dine at both alternatives for the same price as 1 meal at Cinderella's Royal Table since CRT is 2 table service credits and Akershus and 1900 Park Fare are only 1 table service each!)

Akershus Royal Banquet Hall
Guest looking for a princess character meal for their young ones may want to book Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in Epcot. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are offered daily with varying menus. At lunch and dinner Akershus offers a sit down service that includes items off a menu and a small cold buffet called "Taste of Norway" that offers meats, cheeses, cold salads, fruit and more. (Taste of Norway is included with your meal at no additional charge). Breakfast is a buffet that includes both American and Norwegian breakfast favorites. Dining is 1 table service credit on the dining plan. You also receive a free family photo package with a princess. 
Princesses currently at Akershus include: Cinderella, Snow White, Ariel, Aroura and Belle. 

For more information, menus and reviews please refer to the Disney Food Blog.
To make reservations for Akershus, CLICK HERE, or call 407-939-5277.

These pictures were taken during a dinner at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. We have plans to return for breakfast this year as well.



1900 Park Fare 
If you cannot get into Akershus, will not be visiting Epcot, or don't like the menu options offered at Akershus, another good option is dinner at 1900 Park Fare in The Grand Floridian Resort just outside Magic Kingdom (and on the monoraill route). For 1 table service credit on the dining plan, guest can enjoy and all you care to eat buffet featuring popular American foods. 
PLEASE NOTE: Cinderella and Prince Charming are only present for dinner, NOT breakfast. Lunch is not offered.

For For more information, menus and reviews please refer to the Disney Food Blog.

Disney has added a temporary Breakfast or Brunch with Royalty at Citricos in The Grand Floridian.
