    How much are the different options for the magic band meal plans? Do I buy the bands ahead of time, or at the park?

    Hi Brooke!

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. You ask a great question, and if I may, let me break it into two questions.

    I think perhaps your primary question is all about the Disney Dining Plans. There are three offerings for a Disney Dining Plan.  They are Disney Quick-Service Dining Plan, Disney Dining Plan, and Disney Deluxe Dining Plan. You can get pricing on the Disney Dining Plan options by contacting Walt Disney World Resort directly by calling (407) WDW-1947 or  (407) 939-1947. I find that a Disney Dining Plan gives lots of flexibility and convenience.

    Now let's talk MagicBands. If you are staying at Walt Disney World Resort, you will receive a MagicBand. Before you arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will have an option to choose your color (pink, green, red, purple, orange, yellow, blue and gray) and customize your MagicBand by adding a name to the inside of your MagicBand. You can also purchase a MagicBand online or at merchandise locations around Walt Disney World, both inside and outside the theme parks. I find that a MagicBand is the perfect combo of cool wearable tech function and fashion.

    You're sure to find a MagicBand that lets you showcase your Disney style perfectly, and you're sure to find a Disney Dining Plan that meets your vacationing dining style.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
