    If I already purchased my Magic Band for my vacation in November, can I purchase the Magic Band+ on My Disney Experience? I didn't realize they were going to have these. I'm behind the times!

    Hiya Diane!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I am so glad you stopped by to ask us this question, as the MagicBand+ truly is so exciting. With so many new offerings, keeping up with Disney Parks news can be challenging, but that's what we're here for! 

    In this case, I would highly recommend that you reach out to a Cast Member via chat, email or phone, as Cast Members would be able to help further. Indeed, you are correct that Guests with a Resort hotel reservation are able to purchase a MagicBand+ with their reservation. While you may not be able to get a refund for the MagicBands that were already ordered, a Cast Member may be able to help you order your MagicBand+ through your reservation. However, it is dependent on where you are in the reservation process. Otherwise, do not fret! You can also simply purchase your MagicBand+ in person at select merchandise locations or online on shopDisney

    I am so glad you decided to try the new MagicBand+ on your next vacation, as they will be especially magical during the World's Most Magical Celebration! Indeed, one of their offerings is a unique way to appreciate the golden statues of the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection throughout the parks. Indeed, you will be able to interact with the statues of your favourite characters and receive some extra magic! For the Star Wars fans in your party, head to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios to participate in the Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters. In this search inspired by The Mandalorian, you will be assigned a character from the Star Wars universe, which you will have to find throughout the land using your MagicBand+. Lastly, you will be able to end the day with one of the incredible nighttime spectaculars, Disney Enchantment or Harmonious, and experience some extra magic with your MagicBand+. All of which are available on top of the regular MagicBand functions! My next Disney vacation truly could not come quickly enough.

    I hope this was helpful, Diane, and that you and your Ohana will have the best day ever on your next Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please don't hesitate to reach back out. We are always happy to help fellow bounty hunters!

    Have a magical day,
