    I booked a trip to Disney in March and didn't realize that I get a discount on Magic Bands if I order through the My Disney Experience. I ordered from the Disney store and didn't get the discount (or the selection). Can I return the ones I bought?

    Hi Charlotte! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Let the countdown begin! Your Walt Disney World trip will be here before you know it! Now is the perfect time to iron out all of the details for your upcoming stay.

    MagicBands and MagicBand+ are great friends to have along with you for your trip. Not only do they offer incredible benefits during your park day, but you can also use them at your Disney Resorts Hotel to access your resort room door. They will be linked to your My Disney Experience account, so you can use them to make purchases at many dining and merchandise locations!

    You are correct. MagicBands can be purchased through your My Disney Experience account at a discounted rate prior to your visit. There is a limited selection available, but they continue to add more quite often. Since you already purchased MagicBands through shopDisney, they do allow a full refund on returns made within 30 days of the shipping date of your order. The MagicBands will need to be returned new and in the original packaging. If you already linked them to your My Disney Experience account using the code on the back of the band, they will not be eligible for return either. Once a MagicBand is linked to a specific Guest, it cannot be reused for anyone else.

    Charlotte, you'll be arriving just in time to experience the magic of the 50th Anniversary Celebration! This event is set to end at the end of March, so your timing can't be any more perfect. If you decide on a MagicBand+, you can use them to interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection that can be found across all four theme parks. The golden statues are modeled after your favorite Disney characters and perform a bit of magic as you wave your band in front of them!

    Have a magical vacation! See ya real soon!
