    how to buy magic bands

    Hey there, Carol! I am so glad you found us here at planDisney to ask your MagicBand question, since I consider myself a MagicBand addict. I know ALL the places to get cute MagicBands. I carry at least 4 with me on every Walt Disney World vacation. 

    Since you have decided that you want to purchase new MagicBands, (and there are some super cute ones available right now), you can buy them for a discount through your MyDisneyExperience once you have your resort reservation booked. On the website, hover your mouse over “MyDisneyExperience” and then click on “My MagicBands and Cards”. This will take you to a page where you can select bands for everyone traveling on your reservation. You will pay at the end and the MagicBands will be shipped directly to your home. 

    You can also browse a large selection of MagicBands at shopDisney online. There are even more designs available here, but you do not get a discount. Once you are at Walt Disney World, you can also purchase a new band in many of the retail locations throughout the property.

    If you have MagicBands from a previous visit, you can absolutely bring those as well. The official word is that the battery life in older bands is two years, but I have some that are way older than that and they still work. 

    I hope this helps with planning your visit for The Most Magical Celebration on Earth. Be sure to check out all of the 50th Anniversary and holiday snacks that are available in December. My favorite was the Werther’s Original Gingerbread Caramel Cookie Sandwich from Karamell-Kuche in the Germany pavilion in EPCOT. It was SO good! 

    Happy Traveling,
