For FP+ you do have to tap on the Mickey. That's a near field thing.
We pose for the pics and then use them for end of year holiday cards. So it's fun for us to see

If there is a two you do not have to. But in June we didn't tap for a few and did not get them. Disney found the missing ones, but we didn't get the silly movies with the Buzz like usual. Now we always two just to be sure. March though worked flawlessly.

Good use of the pics.

We do themed holiday cards of places we've been to and photographed. Never pictures with us in them. Different approaches.

Cheers.

Family who didn't get to travel much like pics of growing kids so I oblige.

I hadn't thought to have pics I took. Might have to consider that.

If you use an old one, you don't have to "activate" it, you just need to make sure it still has a battery life. So you 'd need to try and match the serial number to get a more recent one. Unless you have the date of your stay as part of the name printed inside it, which is a tip I might use next time.

Also some older bands might work for your room etc but may no longer work for the ride videos; I don't know how long that bit works for.
Thanks! The way its worded it makes it seem as if new bands won't allow you to go straight to your room!!

I also like the idea of adding the trip date...I'll need to start doing that because my kids play with the bands and I have no idea which ones are from what trip!
