    I bought Magic bands online to surprise my kids of a trip in the summer. Can I get their bands personalized?

    Hey, India! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your question. I am so glad you were able to purchase MagicBands for your children before your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit! These handy little devices really make a day in the parks more convenient and, well, magical! Before the days of MagicBands, my daughters occasionally misplaced their tickets or Key to the World cards that were used to enter our Disney Resort Hotel room. Now, they just snap on their MagicBands and off we go! No need to keep up with cards for each person and rummage through my bag every time we enter a park or FastPass+ queue. A simple tap of that band on our wrist does the job! How easy is that?

    I can definitely understand how you may want to personalize each MagicBand before your trip, especially if multiple people have the same color. While this cannot be done by Disney at this point, I do have a few tips for you. The MagicBands can be personalized by you to make each one unique. You will just want to make sure that you do not cover the main center puck in any way so that it can communicate with the "readers" during your vacation. I have purchased stickers on Etsy and similar craft websites to decorate our MagicBands. You should be able to find some sellers on there that have letters if you would like to add a name for each band. My favorite enhancements are interlocking initials with Mickey ears or Minnie bows above them. So cute! There are even simple decorations you can do yourself, such as with nail polish or paint pens. When MagicBands first came out, I used a white paint pen to put dots all over my red MagicBand and then added a few Christmas trees to make it extra festive that holiday season.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions!
