    Hi! I just bought tickets for September when we come to Magic Kingdom. I am looking to purchase Magic Bands but shop Disney only has two options. I was wondering why that is and where can I get other magic bands before we come down?

    Hi there, Katelyn! Welcome to planDisney, where we love helping our fellow Guests plan magical Disney vacations. Thanks so much for bringing us your question!

    I actually have really exciting news for you, my friend! The reason why you're coming across a very low MagicBand stock on shopDisney is that those specific designs are actually being discontinued in order to make way for a MUCH better option: MagicBand+! With MagicBand+, you will be able to immerse yourself into the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort in ways that you've never seen before, and I can promise you that you will absolutely love it. 

    I actually had the chance to try out the new MagicBand+ last week at the 50th Anniversary Media Event, and it totally blew my mind! Your MagicBand+ will light up when you tap the Mickey head turnstiles, it will interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues throughout the Resort, and it will guide you through your very own Star Wars story at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge... plus so much more that I won't spoil for you!

    Even though I don't have a specific date to give you for when Disney will release the new MagicBand+ to the public, I can tell you that it's supposed to roll out this Summer. Since you're going to be joining the fun in September, I would highly encourage you to wait and see if they're released before your magical vacation! If not, remember that you can always purchase them directly at the Walt Disney World Resort. Keep checking back on the Disney Parks Blog for more fun updates!

    I hope that my answer has helped clarify things for you, Katelyn, but please don't hesitate to come back and ask me any other questions you might have about your upcoming Disney vacation.

    Stay magical,

    Ana Paula
