    We are coming to WDW to celebrate the first two weeks of January 2022. When and where can we purchase new Magic Band +?

    Hi there Carolyn, and welcome to planDisney!

    I'm thrilled to hear you'll be starting the New Year with a Walt Disney World vacation. What a magical way to celebrate and kick-off 2022! With the 50th-anniversary festivities underway, there is so much to zip-a-dee-do and see in the theme parks and resorts. From new attractions like Remy's Ratatouille Adventure to spectacular evening entertainment like Harmonious, you'll enjoy incredible experiences all day and night. 

    MagicBand+ is an innovative new piece of technology that will debut as part of the 50th-anniversary celebration. MagicBand+ will be available for purchase beginning sometime in 2022, and there will be a discounted, pre-arrival price for Guests staying in hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection, as well as for new and renewing Walt Disney World Annual Passholders. Current MagicBands will continue to be available, too, along with the complimentary Disney MagicMobile service. 

    We don't have an exact launch date for MagicBand+, so stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog and official social media accounts for more information. All of us at planDisney are excited to see how MagicBand+ will enhance our vacations, so we'll be watching right along with you for a launch date. If having a MagicBand is important to you, and you won't be bringing them from a previous stay, I recommend taking advantage of the pre-arrival discount and purchasing them at least eleven days before leaving for your trip if you want them shipped to your home, or a week before check-in to pick them up at your resort. 

    I hope this is helpful, Carolyn. Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney with your question, and we look forward to seeing ya real soon. 

    Happy holidays!
