Do we think for the stuff that goes on sale Oct 1 that they will limit sales? Like I wanted 2 of the Magic Bands, but I am there by myself, would they let me buy 2 of them?


That MagicBand!!!


Will they be available for longer than day of? Like, will it be a long celebration like Disneyland’s 60th? Our trip is scheduled for Thanksgiving.
