    Is anyone else having difficulty in getting premium magic bands on the Disney website? I have been trying for over a month now to get 2 bands. Every time I find 2 that we like, once you put in shopping cart and go to purchase it will say out of stock.

    Hey, Carol! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for stopping by with your question. I guess I need to also welcome you to the MagicBand Watchers Club! The club description is pretty basic - find a premium MagicBand you want and let the refreshing begin. This optional upgrade for the standard complimentary MagicBand provided to Disney Resort Hotel guests has been quite a popular offering! The stock is replenished often, but we just have to catch them when they do it as there is no exact time of day or day of the week that this is done. It seems as almost as quickly as they appear, they disappear. So far, we have just had to rely on faith, trust, and pixie dust to acquire the MagicBands we want. My inner Foolish Mortal won out a couple of weeks ago, so I have a great Haunted Mansion themed one to wear to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party soon. However, that sweet Pineapple Swirl MagicBand that I have tried to get for months still is not mine. Sigh...

    Sometimes, the stock depletes before the page has time to refresh, so that maybe what is going on with your attempts. I do have a few quick tips to share with you that have seemed to work. If your web browser has an incognito option, use that. Try checking first thing in the morning or late at night. Our reasoning has been that there are fewer people on at that time and if a drop happens, that can be a better chance of magic happening. One Cast Member suggested clearing your history and doing a hard reset with Ctrl F5. Another has said to use Safari as your browser. I wish using my Fairy Godmother magic wand was an option, but it has not seemed to work as well as these other tips!

    Sending you many magical wishes for your favorite MagicBands to come available at the same time! Thanks for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
