    I chose 4 wristbands for our trip but before I could pay $$ for them they sold out. Will Disney be restocking the star wars wristbands?

    Hi Mary,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I have quite a few MagicBands from various stays at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. I was so excited when they announced they would be offering the opportunity to purchase upgraded MagicBands for an additional fee. 

    Unfortunately for me, I think everyone was excited about the possibility of upgraded MagicBands because every single time I checked the newer MagicBand options were out of stock. However, I don't give up very easily. One of my friends and I kept checking My Disney Experience to see if the stock was replenished. We had the same experience you had when trying to order. We would select the MagicBands for everyone in our party but when we tried to move forward, the MagicBands were sold out. 

    I think persistence and variety are key when trying to upgrade your MagicBands. We channeled our inner Dory and just kept checking, just kept checking, just kept checking at different times of the day. It helps that my friend is from England so we were checking at all times of the day. Eventually, we found the MagicBands we wanted to order and were able to complete the transaction. I think we finally completed our order about a day before our deadline! 

    Mary, I'm sending you all kinds of pixie dust that you will be able to purchase the MagicBands you desire. Thank you for visiting us with your question. I hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other questions before your visit. 
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
