    Am I able to order MagicBand+ at different times through MDE? I want to order mine now so I don't miss the design. My daughter doesn't know we're going yet and I want her to pick her own later.

    Hi Ashley,

    Thanks for continuing to trust planDisney with your thoughtful Walt Disney World Resort trip-planning questions. There's nothing quite like the excitement of logging into your My Disney Experience mobile app and seeing your vacation countdown (three small lines at the bottom right of the app's homepage > Resort Hotel). When your countdown hits 60 days, you can make advance reservations for dining online beginning at 6:00 a.m. ET for your entire length of stay. 

    Another great perk for Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel is the ability to pre-order MagicBands for a special pre-arrival price. Your MagicBand order must be placed online, not in the My Disney Experience mobile app, and every person in your party must select or decline a MagicBand before the order can be placed. Unfortunately, this means you have to risk the chance that your preferred MagicBand+ design might not be available if you want to wait for your daughter to choose her design at a later date. Other options are to pay full price for one of the MagicBands or to select a MagicBand+ design for your daughter as a surprise. You could even make the gift of her MagicBand+ part of the grand vacation reveal! For my family's most recent Walt Disney World Resort vacation, I surprised my tween daughter with a MagicBand+ design featuring her favorite character, Stitch. I can't predict what outfits she'll pick in the store, but I'm confident in her character character, haha!

    I hope this information helps bring your MagicBand strategy into focus, Ashley. I'm a big fan of the hands-free convenience MagicBands give me in the parks. My favorite feature of MagicBand+ is the way they interact with nighttime spectaculars - it's like having fireworks on your wrist!

    As your vacation countdown continues, Ashley, please continue to planDisney.

    Choose magic,
