    I have bought and linked my tickets to my my Disney experience but I am not on a Resort Itinerary. I just need to purchase my magic band but do not see the link to purchase just the plain ones?

    Hey there, Joy!

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so very glad that you found us. It looks like your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth is just a few short weeks away. You will be on your way before you know it, so let's talk about how to purchase those MagicBands

    Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can purchase MagicBands before their arrival in My Disney Experience. You did mention not having a Disney Resort hotel itinerary. It is important to note that if you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you cannot purchase a MagicBand through this method. But Hanuka Matata, Joy. This doesn't mean you cannot purchase these magical accessories. You can purchase MagicBands online through shopDisney. Current shipping times are an estimated 5-7 business days. You can also upgrade to expedited shipping options when checking out. Choosing to purchase through third-party vendors is another option, just be sure the band is listed as new. You will be able to add your purchased MagicBands through My Disney Experience with the ID number listed on the back. 

    Joy, you can also purchase MagicBands in person at any of the four Walt Disney World theme parks, in multiple shops in Disney Springs, and even in Disney Resort hotel merchandise shops. This is a fun option if you would prefer to see the MagicBands in person before choosing your favorite design, and they make a great souvenir. If you are worried about theme park entry without a MagicBand already adorning your wrist, have no fear! Just be sure to download the My Disney Experience Mobile app before you arrive. This app will give you access to Disney MagicMobile Service. While in the My Disney Experience app, select the three bars at the bottom right side of the screen. You will see a Disney MagicMobile icon. Choose this option and click on the "Set Up Your Pass" link. The app will walk you through the remaining steps in no time at all. You will be able to enter the parks with a tap of your smartphone, similar to the tap of a MagicBand. You will not even need to unlock your phone!

    I hope that these tips help you find the MagicBand of your choice and give you a few options for park entry. Have a memorable and magical time!
    We'll see ya real soon!
