    Is there some where to buy character Magic bands before your trip? Disney store doesn't have a ton of choices and other online stores are very expensive. Any help would be great thank you

    Hey Megan-

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. MagicBands are amazing and I love the convenience of having everything I need right at arms length.

    MagicBands are sold online and in Disney merchandise locations both inside and outside of the theme parks like Disney's EarPort in the Orlando International Airport. The only ways to get some of those specialty bands before you enter a theme park (no necessarily before your trip) is through third party vendors, on the Shop Disney Parks Mobile App or by making a stop at Disney Springs. The Shop Disney Parks App brings the magic of theme park only merchandise right to your mobile device where you may order. I used this service for several mugs and it was so easy. There are so many character MagicBands sold at Disney Springs stores like Disney's Pin Traders and the World of Disney that you are bound to find a favorite. Fortunately, you don't need a MagicBand to enter the theme parks. If you have your heart set on a specific one then wait till you get inside a theme park and get the one you really want.

    Disney Dad Tip: Check out the new MagicBands at the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. in Magic Kingdom Park from some great new designs.

    Megan, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
