    If you buy a MagicBand from the Disney store (for a different color or pattern other than the standard ones), what happens to the ones Disney is supposed to send you after you link the ~cool~ one? Does it still send or do you need to cancel it somehow?

    Hello Kaley, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question.

    I absolutely love MagicBands! These stylish pieces of wrist wear can do so many things, unlock the door to your Resort Hotel room, give you access to theme parks, allow you to redeem FastPass+ selection, add photos to your Memory Maker account and to charge food and merchandise back to your hotel room. Since you are a guest at a Disney Resort Hotel, everyone in your travel party will receive a complimentary MagicBand. You can customize these MagicBands by choosing from one of eight solid colors. You can also personalize these MagicBands with your name or nickname inside. You can complete your order in My Disney Experience. You are still entitled to these MagicBands, no matter how many extras you purchase from the Disney Store.

    When you purchase MagicBands from the Disney Store, you can choose from dozens of MagicBands that represent your favorite Disney Character, ride or attraction. When you receive these MagicBands in the mail you will need to add them to your account. You can do this by clicking on the “MagicBands and Cards Tab” in My Disney Experience. Enter the code on the inside of the MagicBand to link it to your account. You can have more than one active MagicBand on your account. Even though I can only wear one at a time, I have more than a dozen active MagicBands on my account. If you really do not want the complimentary band, you can decline it if you already have a MagicBand linked to your account. If you will be arriving by plane, remember to pack your MagicBands in your carry-on luggage. You will need them to check-in with the Cast Member at Disney’s Magical Express Welcome Center.

    See ya real soon,
