    anyone know what the story is with the magic band upgrades ? Can’t get the premium bands .

    Hi there, Glen! 

    With the release of the premium character MagicBands for a special discounted price, guests were fell in love with this feature quickly! Those premium MagicBands sold out quickly and many guests were left wondering when they will be available again.

    No word has been released yet as to when the premium character MagicBands will be available for purchase if staying at a Walt Disney World resort. I look at the My MagicBands and Cards link recently in My Disney Experience, and the website still does not have the option to add those premium bands. So, we're hoping and keeping our fingers crossed that a bit of pixie dust will be sprinkled into our My Disney Experience accounts within the next few weeks with those awesome MagicBands. 

    Glen, keep checking back here with us, as well as, The Disney Parks Blog. Updated information hits their website each day, and hopefully, some MagicBand news will be coming soon!

    Happy planning,
