    Where can we buy magic band+? We r not staying at wdw this time. Can we do it on the park gate? Or Disney character warehouse? Or Disney spring?

    Welcome to planDisney, Lina! MagicBands are a great way to accessorize (and add convenience) to your vacation! My family loves choosing our MagicBands for our visits to the Walt Disney World Resort! Not only are the bands a great way to get excited for your upcoming trip, but they add an incredible amount of convenience to your visit! With a MagicBand, my wife and I find we can leave wallets and purses behind as charging privileges can be added to our bands. Additionally, the bands can act as our park admission as long as you link your admission. And now, MagicBand+ adds even more magic!

    MagicBands and MagicBand+ are available in several locations! The easiest place to find them is on! There is a great MagicBand+ selection currently available! I’ve got my eye on that Disney 100 band featuring Mickey and Minnie! I purchase my bands well before our vacation because I like to have peace of mind that our bands are linked to our My Disney Experience account prior to traveling. However, you can also wait until you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort to make your purchase. You will find additional bands available in the gift shops located throughout the parks. I was just in the Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park and found a variety of MagicBand+ options! If you purchase one at the parks, you can then link your band to your account.

    Lina, I want to share a pro tip with you! Your MagicBand+ will interact with the 50th Anniversary “Fab 50” character statues located throughout the four theme parks! As you approach one of the statues, wave your MagicBand+ from side to side of the statue. Then wait a moment for the statue to have a special greeting for you! This is definitely one of my favorite features of MagicBand+!

    Happy planning!
