Do they still give these bands away on Disney Cruises, like if one is scheduled for next year, or did they change to something else?

The Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab still use magic bands.

Thanks Steven. My wife and I are taking an alone Disney cruise next year, so we won't be able to get a band(s)? I am assuming those clubs/labs are for children? Thanks Steven, or anyone :)

I read elsewhere a comment from a mother that she 'Forgot to return her daughter's band' after their trip. Which means they must request them back. Maybe that's why they're expensive, they retain a deposit value? But at the same time that makes no sense because why would you have it at home for Disney infinity if the cruise line want you to hand in before leaving ( ? ).

Just read up... The bands are issued to kids 12 and under to allow free access in and out of the Oceaneer kids club. The coloured 'slider' on the band indicated if the child has a food allergy or not. ( red for yes ). Anyway, the bands are supposed to be returned before you checkout/disembark. If you do not, a charge is added to your bill. This is also why they are so rare as most parents probably aren't aware of the Infinity connection, and don't want to incur more expense at the end of the cruise.

But this seems cheeky to me, because even though you have paid for your cruise ( a pretty penny i would think ), you are then required to cough up more for the band if you want to use it for the Infinity unlocks, or you keep it as a souvenir. They are also encouraging people NOT to return the bands as the band is the ONLY way to get the DI toys. I don't know, is it just another way to generate revenue? Charging you £15 for a £3 wrist strap ( I actually have no idea what they cost ). But I always look at everything cynically. That's just me.

Ahh, Thanks for reading up, something I should do, lol. Ours is more than a year away and I was assuming all along the oceaneers band was simply a magic band you get on the cruise (all people) to unlock doors the their room, for dining etc.

I'm far too used to WDW way of doing things...

OK. Managed to get a pair of used Magic Bands off ebay for £1, plus £2.90 postage. So i've now got the 'partners' statue, Dragon and Small world facade unlocked. Also managed to sell the other band almost immediately for £6, so i'm very happy. Got the unlocks, made a couple of quid, and I still have a band for when I upgrade to One from 360. :)

I was just lucky enough to have been looking at the right time. It was the first time i'd tried, and I found them without a bid an hour and a half before ending.

Now maybe if I randomly search for an oceaneer band... ;)
