    When can we customize our MagicBands to the new Character ones?

    Hey, Miranda! Thanks for bringing us another great question! Recently, the Disney Parks Blog shared some exciting updates to MagicBands. Actually, this is an update I have wished for a number of times! These little magic makers currently come in a variety of solid colors that can be customized by Annual Passholders and other guests as part of their Walt Disney World Resort hotel stay. Soon, guests will have the option to customize more than just the color and name on the back.

    This exciting upgrade option, when officially launched, will allow guests to match their choice of MagicBand color with more than 30 new Disney character and design options. If you do wish to upgrade from the standard customization to this new type of MagicBand, then you will be credited $14.99 towards the regular retail cost of your super deluxe MagicBand. This cost is subject to change, so be sure to look over the webpage when you are able to customize yours.

    As I mentioned before, this new feature to My Disney Experience is coming "soon," but it has not yet launched. I recommend you keep an eye on your My Disney Experience account to await the module's initiation. Once it does launch, you will be able to customize your MagicBands if you have not previously made any selections OR if your complimentary MagicBands have not yet shipped. In the event that you notice the feature has gone live and yours have already shipped, then you will not be able to take part in the MagicBand upgrades for this Resort stay. If you are wishing upon a star for a specific character, take a look at shopDisney before your trip to see if you spot one there. If you prefer to wait until you arrive, you will find an even larger selection in merchandise locations all across the Resort. The Emporium in Magic Kingdom Park is my favorite spot to find my favorite MagicBands!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
