    We already have a trip booked for October 2019 at Wilderness Lodge, and wondered if we could upgrade our magic bands to the custom ones. We have tried to do it on the site but have had no success.

    Welcome Home Carissa!

    You are visiting Walt Disney World Resort at one of my favorite times of the year! We try to make it up to Magic Kingdom Park at least once during the Fall celebrations. My goal is to get a picture of the three littles each year in front of the larger-than-life pumpkins at the entrance!

    The brand-new MagicBand upgrades are just the latest way Walt Disney World lets you start the Magic before you arrive! I am so excited to personalize our MagicBands for our upcoming August vacation. My daughter has laid claim to BB-8, and I will be sporting the Disney Emoji one! You can upgrade your band at special pre-arrival prices up to 11-days before your arrival. This allows Disney enough time to send your bands so that you can wear the Magic as you arrive at Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!

    Keep an EAR out on your My Disney Experience account. Very soon you will see the option to upgrade under MagicBands and Cards. Each person will have a band under their name, and you can get started from there. The Big Boss (i.e., Mickey Mouse) hasn’t told us exactly when the fun begins, but since he’s announced it on the Disney Parks Blog, I have a feeling it will be very soon! Regardless, you have plenty of time to upgrade before your October trip.

    Now, every guest visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the Fall should experience the frightfully festive Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park! Devilish Halloween decor, enchanting entertainment, and bewitching surprises await you as you celebrate Halloween with a Disney twist! Kids of all ages can trick-or-treat on certain nights from August through October, and as a Disney Vacation Club Member, you get special pricing! Book your frightful delight early as this party is especially popular with the grinning ghosts!

    Carissa, have a spook-tacular stay!
