    When will I be able to get Christmas Magic bands for my trip in December 2019?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa!

    Ooooh, I LOVE Christmastime at Walt Disney World Resort! I’m so excited to hear you’re planning a visit during the most merry and magical time of the year, and I extra love that you’re looking to add holiday flair to your outfits, right down to your MagicBand

    New merchandise is often announced on the Disney Parks Blog, and I would expect to see some seasonal MagicBand offerings highlighted there starting in the late fall. I would also keep an eye on the MagicBand options on ShopDisney’s website. Last year, a new Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party MagicBand debuted at the first party on November 8th – it was so cute, featuring Mickey and Minnie in their Christmas best!

    Lisa, you might have heard that Disney recently added the option to upgrade to a premium MagicBand when selecting your family’s MagicBands for your Walt Disney World Resort hotel stay. For an additional fee, Guests will be able to select from available designs in addition to the classic solid-colored options (which will remain complimentary with a resort stay). More than 30 styles were part of the initial offering, featuring your favorite characters, attractions, and Disney icons. This offering was incredibly popular, and the upgrades are currently out of stock, but I’m hoping they will be restocked soon, and that more options will be added, including seasonal ones. If you’d like to select one of these as part of a Walt Disney World Resort reservation, keep an eye on the MagicBand options available your My Disney Experience account.

    I’m sending some sparkly, red and green pixie dust that “once upon a Christmastime at Christmas” this year, there are some fabulous, fancy, and festive MagicBand options available. Selfishly, I’m hoping for a MagicBand featuring my favorite characters, Santa’s reindeer, and I hope you get just what you’re wishing for too.

    I hope you have the holly-jolliest Christmas visit to Walt Disney World! There is so much holiday magic in the air, and Disney decks the halls with such beautiful decorations throughout the theme parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. When you’re standing on Main Street, U.S.A. and that magical Christmas snow begins to fall, take a minute to feel the holiday spirit and take in the wonder all around you – it’s a feeling like nothing else.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
