    Where do I buy magic bands online in advance to get a discount?

    Greetings and welcome to planDisney, Laura!

    Thank you for taking the time to send us your very first question. We are honored to assist you as you plan a pixie-dusted visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    I am happy to share that Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel are welcome to purchase MagicBands at special pre-arrival prices. To view available options and complete your purchase, sign in to your Disney account and visit My MagicBands and Cards. Please note that MagicBand and MagicBand+ purchases made 11 or more days before your arrival date will be sent to your home. Purchases made 6-10 days before your check-in date will be shipped to your Disney Resort hotel for pick-up. Upon arrival, stop by Front Desk at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel, and Cast Members will gladly assist you.

    Guests who are not staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel are welcome to purchase a MagicBand or a MagicBand+ online at or upon arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort. They are available at several merchandise locations at the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels, and Disney Springs. You will be able to use your MagicBand or MagicBand+ to enter the theme parks (with valid admission), link Disney PhotoPass content to My Disney Experience, redeem Disney Genie+ selections and individual Lightning Lane entry purchases, and more. Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can also use their MagicBand or MagicBand+ to unlock the door of their Guest room and charge purchases to their room account during their stay.

    I hope this information is helpful, Laura. Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, and have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Disney wishes,
