    Hi All, I have a trip planned. It still shows an option to pick or buy Magic Bands. I thought I'd heard that complimentary bands had been discontinued. Do they still offer complimentary bands? And if you buy bands do they ship them to home?

    Hi Dan!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am very happy to see that you have a trip planned for next year.  I cannot wait to return to the Most Magical Place on Earth!  Complimentary MagicBands are still available for Disney Resort hotel reservations with an arrival date until 31st December 2020, but after that date, they are discontinued.  You will still have the choice of purchasing your MagicBands through your My Disney Experience Account.  Shipping is an option to some locations, and this will be clarified when you provide your address during the purchase of your MagicBand.  If they cannot be shipped to you, you can visit the Front Desk of your Resort hotel at any time to collect them.  On arrival at your hotel, if you have used online check-in, you may go straight to your room, using your My Disney Experience mobile app on your smartphone to unlock your door.  

    There is also a wide selection of MagicBands, including limited editions, available for purchase at full price at select stores around the theme parks and at Disney Springs.   Have a look in Mouse Gear at EPCOT,  Emporium on Main Street U.S.A. and Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. at Magic Kingdom Park, and World of Disney and Marketplace Co-Op - D-Tech on Demand at Disney Springs for a great selection. You can also order them online from shopDisney.  It's definitely worth having a look there, as I have found some lovely designs that I am still enjoying wearing on my holidays at Walt Disney World Resort.

    During the phased re-opening of Walt Disney World, we may need a little more considered and careful planning, but our vacations to Walt Disney World Resort can still be a magical experience.  Please read this information about Returning to a World of Magic, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official updates as they are announced.

    We know you have many questions about what this all means for your upcoming visit.  Please know we are working to be able to answer your questions as quickly as possible, and we look forward to providing an update as soon as we have more information to share.  Come back and ask as many questions as you like!  We are always happy to help you plan your vacation.
