    I just booked a Walt Disney world trip. trying to pick my magic band. I saw some designs on the online Disney store that are not showing when looking at the my Disney experience app - resort - choose watch way. Do the designs ever change in the app method?

    Hi Emily!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    Congratulations on booking your trip to Walt Disney World, and for getting organised with a MagicBand.  I wouldn't be without mine - for me it's all part of the trip - choosing a new MagicBand and enjoying the convenience it offers me.  No more fumbling around in my backpack trying to find my phone or credit card to pay for something.

    Disney Resort hotel guests visiting from the United States can pre-order MagicBands from the My Disney Experience app.  The designs are updated all the time, so I recommend you keep checking back.  They are also offered at a discounted price, so you can save some money at the same time as having the convenience of your MagicBands being delivered to your home address or to your Disney Resort hotel, ready for when you arrive.

    ShopDisney.com regularly updates its stock, so please keep checking there as well.  Sometimes they have the same designs at My Disney Experience, and sometimes they have different designs, including some lovely limited editions.

    If you place an order with ShopDisney.com, ensure you enter the delivery address as "Your Name" + "GUEST arriving" - insert your arrival date - then add the name and address of your Disney hotel, (which can be found on the Overview page of your hotel on the website).  On arrival, advise the Front Desk that you have a package waiting for you, and they will link your Disney Bands to your account.  I like to place my order around 10 days before I arrive to ensure the package is waiting for me.  It should be noted that you will be charged a Resort fee of around $6.00 (subject to change) for any package received for you by the Front Desk.

    If you decide to wait until you can choose from an even larger selection, several places sell Disney Bands - Disney Springs (D-Tech on Demand, and World of Disney), and in the theme parks - the Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park or Creations Shop at EPCOT both have a good selection, for example. 

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions - you can also send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World!
