    Considering the Premium Magic Band updgrade for my 2 daughters for our Christmas trip.....When is the latest date I can choose to purchase before our trip? and are they only available for pickup at the resort on check-in or do they ship them?

    Hi Martha!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Thank you for sending in such a good question about the new premium MagicBands.  In theory, using My Disney Experience, you can place your order for complimentary or premium MagicBands up to 11 days before your expected arrival date if you wish to have them shipped to your home address.  This shipping is only available to Guests with an address in the United States, and all International Guests have to collect their MagicBands at check-in.  The premium MagicBands have proved to be so popular that they are flying in and out of stock all the time.  I recommend that you keep looking, checking back a few times each day to choose your favourites - having a first and second choice ready for everyone - and place your order as soon as you can, when your preferred choices are in stock.  Please have your plain-coloured complimentary bands selected for your whole group because once you have submitted your order, if it contains at least one premium MagicBand, there is no option to return and amend your order.   

    There is an opportunity to purchase a premium MagicBand (at full price) as a wide choice of MagicBands, including limited editions, is available for purchase at select stores around the theme parks (at Emporium on Main Street U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom Park, Mouse Gear at Epcot and World of Disney at Disney Springs, to name a few).  You can also order them online from shopDisney.  It's worth having a look, as I have found some lovely designs that I have added to my collection, and am continuing to use during my holidays at Walt Disney World.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation.
