    How can I buy the magic bands to be in the parks. I tried to buy them online but they don't have the cheap ones

    Hi there, Maria!

    We’re so glad you stopped by with a question for us at planDisney!

    I love MagicBands so much and totally understand why you want one for your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! Not only can you get one themed to your favorite character or movie, but MagicBands also make your vacation feel easy and convenient. With your MagicBand on your wrist, you have the power of unlocking your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room door and entering the theme parks with valid admission by just tapping in! 

    Maria, if you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you will have the option of purchasing a MagicBand up to 10 days before your arrival at a special pre-arrival price! I have found this to be the cheapest way to purchase a MagicBand. However, if you find the pre-arrival price doesn’t work for you and prefer not to use MagicBands, you can opt to use Disney MagicMobile! This service is a contactless way to enter the theme parks and is available through your My Disney Experience app and works with your phone. And you do not have to be staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel to utilize the DisneyMagicMobile service. 

    To check your pre-arrival MagicBand offer, head over to the Walt Disney World Resort website and hover over the My Disney Experience logo on the top right corner. You will want to click on “My MagicBands & Cards,” and it is there you will see your upcoming stay. Once you click on “Get Started,” follow the steps to choosing the MagicBands for you and your party. 

    With the Florida heat, you might be thinking of going for a swim! You’ll be happy to know you can even wear your MagicBand into your hotel pool as MagicBands are waterproof! 

    We can’t wait to welcome you to the magic, Maria! Have an enchanting time!
