    How can I buy a magic band?

    Hi Lauren! Welcome to planDisney! Finding the “just right” MagicBand is a great way to begin your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning! My family always has fun selecting our newest bands! They serve as a great way to celebrate (and remember) our vacation. The great thing about MagicBands is that they come in so many varieties that there is one for every member of the family!

    Great news! It doesn’t take a Genie or even a treasure map to find MagicBands! The best place to find MagicBands is on where you will find a great selection! In addition to MagicBands, you will also find MagicBand+! These new bands provide a bit more magic to your vacation! MagicBand+ has all of the conveniences of the original MagicBand, plus some extra “add-ons” that you will enjoy while visiting the Disney Parks! MagicBand+ can interact with the “Fab 50” character statues located within the four Disney Parks! Your MagicBand+ will also “come to life” and interact with the nighttime fireworks shows! In addition to purchasing your MagicBands on you can also wait to purchase your MagicBands when you arrive to the Walt Disney World Resort. They are available in many gift shops located within the resort hotels and in the Disney Parks as well.

    Lauren, don’t forget to link your MagicBand or MagicBand+ to your My Disney Experience account. Linking is very easily done! Tap your My Disney Experience app on your mobile device. Then tap the menu (three horizontal gray lines in the bottom right corner of your screen). Then tap the tile that states, “MagicBands and More.” The next screen will then provide you with instructions to “Link Your MagicBand or Card.”

    Lauren, I hope you’ll come back with more planning questions! My planDisney friends and I are here to help with all your planning needs!

    Happy planning!
