    Where can I buy magic bands for my trip

    Hi there, Chelsea, and welcome to planDisney from a fellow Kentuckian! Have you chosen your Derby hat yet? Although you might be at Walt Disney World Resort on the "First Saturday in May," you'll have a magical time no matter where you are. 

    Speaking of magic, my favorite accessory for any Disney outfit is my MagicBand+. I was at Magic Kingdom Park today where my band transformed into a festive, colorful part of the parades and fireworks. It also gives me a friendly nudge when I have a new PhotoPass image to view in my mobile app, so it's a fabulous traveling companion! My band is also my Disney Resort Hotel key, and I can make charges to my room folio. All at my fingertips! Well, technically, at my wrist!

    Guests of Disney Resort Hotels can purchase MagicBands at a pre-arrival discount, but I'm afraid you probably won't receive them in time for this visit. The good news is that you'll have many options to purchase bands once you're at Walt Disney World.

    On my trip, I saw MagicBand+ for sale at several locations! The Emporium on Main Street, USA, at Magic Kingdom Park had a large selection, including some special edition bands. I've also seen bands at the World of Disney at Disney Springs, and many hotel gift shops offer these fun and practical bracelets.

    Merchandise changes daily, so I'm sending pixie dust your way so you'll find a band worthy of the winner's circle! Cast Members will be happy to help you link your band to your My Disney Experience account, or you can follow the instructions that come with your band.

    You can also purchase MagicBands and MagicBand+ at the online Disney Store. You might not have time for them to arrive for this vacation, but it's something to remember for future trips. You can find one in your favorite racing silk colors! 

    Chelsea, safe travels from the Bluegrass State, and please stop by planDisney again. Maybe we can grab some Derby Pie together!

    Magic awaits,
