    Are we allowed to bring our own custom magic bands?

    Hey there, Ronin! Welcome to planDisney!

    To me, planning for my vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth is almost as much fun as being on vacation! I love to research the restaurants I want to dine in for my advance dining reservations and plan my outfits for each day, right down to the accessories - including which MagicBands I want to bring with me! 

    Ronin, Guests are able to bring MagicBands that are purchased through My Disney Experience or shopDisney to Walt Disney World Resort! If you'd like to order your MagicBands through your My Disney Experience account, log into your account online, hover your mouse over the My Disney Experience tab, and click My MagicBands & Cards. Here, you'll be able to select and purchase MagicBands for your whole travel party! You can also scroll down to Manage MagicBands or Cards and see which MagicBands are active and linked to your account. If you'd like to purchase your MagicBands through shopDisney, you'll want to make sure they're linked to your account through the Link Reservations and Purchases page!

    You can decorate and customize your MagicBands however you like and there are many small shops online that offer skins and stickers that you could use! Just as a note: MagicBands cannot be transferred from one account to another once it has initially been linked to a specific Guest.

    Did you know that you also have access to the Disney MagicMobile service? It's true! This is a digital pass that works similarly to MagicBands and will allow you to enter theme parks, link PhotoPass images to your account, and even charge to your Disney Resort hotel folio! This feature can be used on eligible iPhones and Google Pay-enabled Android phones. If you'd like to use Disney MagicMobile service, take a minute to download the My Disney Experience app. Log into the app and tap the icon that looks like three stacked lines in the bottom right corner. Tap Disney MagicMobile and select the image you'd like on your digital pass! If you have an iPhone, you can even tap the plus sign in the upper right corner to easily add this pass to your digital wallet. Ta-da!

    Ronin, I hope I was able to help you with your MagicBands for your future trips! If you have any other questions, please visit us again. After all - you've got a friend in me!

    Faith, trust, and pixie dust -
