    We bought tickets and made reservations for parks. We are 17 days out from coming to Disney. Can we still purchase magic bands to use as our tickets? Can we buy them when we get there?

    Hello Regina and may I wish you a very warm welcome to planDisney. 

    Oh boy!  As your much-awaited vacation to the magic and wonder of Walt Disney World Resort gets ever closer and is in fact,  right around the river bend... I can just imagine how super excited you must be feeling!  For some further inspiration to help you countdown the remaining days until Disney, you may wish to take a peek at our pixie-dusted Panel Extras - Countdown to your Disney Vacation.

    It sure sounds like you've already been busy planning as you've purchased Disney Theme Park Tickets and successfully linked them to your My Disney Experience account.  Plus you've then gone ahead and made those all-important Disney Park Pass reservations too!  Good job Regina!

    MagicBands make a wonderful addition to your Disney attire as they seamlessly link to all the benefits within your My Disney Experience account including Disney Theme Park Tickets, Disney Park Pass reservations and so much more besides! 

    Upon arrival at Walt Disney World Resort, you'll discover a myriad of MagicBand designs available to purchase at a plethora of Disney Merchandise Stores.  MagicBand designs are so varied that I feel sure there will be one to suit the fashion sense of every Mouseketeer in your whole party!

    Additionally, it might be useful for you to know that Guests who have access to eligible Apple iPhones, Apple Watches, or Google Pay enabled Android devices can now utilise the Disney MagicMobile Service which works similarly to that of a MagicBand.  Guests wishing to use Disney MagicMobile Service are able to create a digital pass to link and then gain access to their Disney vacation entitlements... and it all works, as if by magic!

    Regina, all that remains is for me to wish you a vacation to Walt Disney World Resort that is practically perfect in every way!

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
