    Hi again, Mom's Panel! How do you know which magic bands are extra special and light up or play songs? Is there certain ones that can do this or do they all do something special? Thank you for your help while I plan my trip! :)

    Hello Angela, and thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a merchandise question.

    I absolutely love MagicBands. I am a firm believer in the fact that you cannot have too many of this awesome stylish accessory. They are so handy because they open the door to your Disney Resort Hotel Room, allow you to access your tickets and FastPass+ selections, you can charge food and merchandise to your room and add photos to your Memory Maker account.

    There are dozens of styles of MagicBands available online and on the Shop Disney Parks Mobile App. The MagicBands that you are interested in are only sold at the Walt Disney World Resort. These limited edition MagicBands are typically offered for theme park anniversary celebrations, special ticketed events like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. There are also MagicBands offered for movie releases like the Avengers: Infinity War, Incredibles II, and Solo: A Star Wars Story. Quantities and supplies are limited and these items cannot be purchased online, however, you can use the mobile app to tell you where exactly on Disney property, these MagicBands can be purchased. A Cast Member will also be happy to tell you which special MagicBands they have in stock and what their "magic" powers are. Keep in mind that the battery in a MagicBand is only good for approximately 2 years and cannot be replaced. They make amazing collector’s items once they lose their magic powers. I hope that helps to answer your question and if not, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
