    How do you customize your magic band with name engravings in the back of your magic band after purchasing one at the shop Disney online store?

    Hi Tommy!

    Welcome to planDisney! MagicBands are your key to unlocking all of the magic at the Walt Disney World Resort! After our many trips to the resort, we have quite the collection of basic and upgraded MagicBands at our house. There are a few different ways to personalize MagicBands if you would like to.

    Unfortunately, at this time, MagicBands that are ordered directly from shopDisney are not able to be personalized by Disney. I have known many folks to decorate them themselves with things like stickers and decals, paint, and even stick-on gems. You are welcome to decorate your MagicBand if you like! I recommend a coat of clear nail polish over stickers and decals to help keep your design in place.

    If you will be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can purchase a MagicBand through My Disney Experience before your visit and there is a discount applied. To do this, sign-in to your account, then go to My MagicBands and Cards to begin the selection process. You can choose from a basic solid color band or an upgraded design, and you will be able to personalize the name on the underside of the band when you order.

    For a truly made-to-order design, you’ll have the most flexibility by purchasing a band after arrival at one of the on-demand design locations where you can create your own cell phone cases, MagicBands, and other tech! You can choose the color of your band, then select from a variety of patterns, characters, and designs, and even include your name on the front-side of the band. I have one of these MagicBands with my name and artwork from the Pixar movie, “Up,” my favorite animated movie. You can find the "MaDe" made-to-order design stations at the Marketplace Co-op at Disney Springs, and the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. at Magic Kingdom.    

    I hope this helps you design the perfect MagicBand, Tommy. Please let us know what other questions you have as you plan your visit, we are here to help!
