    Hi! I cannot wear a Magic Band because of skin allergies (neither an Apple Watch). I have noticed there are options such as key chains. Can I buy such items with the pre-arrival discount (I'll lodge at All Star Movies)? Thanks a lot!

    Hiya, Renata! Welcome to the (second) Most Magical Place on Earth, planDisney! Thank you so much for stopping by with your question.

    At this time, the pre-arrival discount on MagicBands is only available to Guests residing in the United States and Canada, so I regret to tell you that, as a Brazilian resident, you won't be able to take advantage of this offer. 

    That being said, you will be able to purchase your very own MagicBand through shopDisney, or as soon as you've arrived at the Walt Disney World Resort! These convenient accessories can be found at select shops throughout the Resort, so you won't need to search far and wide to find them. In regards to your question, Renata, MagicBand pucks aren't sold separately, so you'll need to purchase a MagicBand and take the puck out yourself if you intend to place it in a keychain or lanyard. In order for you to remove the puck from the MagicBand, all you'll need to do is loosen it with a small screwdriver.

    Unfortunately, the Disney brand of keychains and lanyards designed for MagicBand pucks–also known as MagicKeepers–seems to have been discontinued on shopDisney shortly after the new MagicBand+ was announced. MagicBand+ will replace the MagicBand sometime in 2022, and it will make every Disney trip even more magical! Since you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort early next year, you will probably have access to the new MagicBand+, so I highly encourage you to wait until they've been launched to make any further decisions.

    However, if you'd like to purchase a MagicBand sooner rather than later, you could always head over to eBay or Amazon to see if you can score a MagicKeeper for your MagicBand puck. I'm sure there are dozens of designs for you to choose from! 

    Thanks again for bringing us your great question, Renata. It's been a pleasure helping out today! Please don't hesitate to come back with any other questions you might have in English or in Portuguese

    Until next time,
