    What are the best tips to get magic bands on sale? We are not staying on resort. Thank you!

    Hi Jessica, and welcome to planDisney!

    I am all about having access to convenience as often as I can get it when it comes to our Walt Disney World Resort vacations!  If I can purchase my theme park tickets online instead of physically standing in line to get them from the Walt Disney World Theme Park Ticket Windows, that is a win/win. 

    You can purchase a MagicBand in various shops throughout Walt Disney World or via shopDisney.com. shopDisney has an array of available MagicBands, and the prices are pretty competitive. On occasion, they will have a markdown on certain MagicBands, so you will have an opportunity to save money. I recommend purchasing your MagicBands prior to your arrival so that you have them in your possessions before you leave home. When you receive the MagicBands, be sure to link them to your My Disney Experience account.

    MagicBands will place convenience on your wrist whether you are a Disney Resort guest or not. A great way to use your MagicBand is to enter the theme parks or tap to enter the Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane entrance using the available Disney Genie service. 

    Please let us know if you have additional questions.

    Have a magical day!
