    Are there different sizes of magic bands?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    So you are wondering if there are different size MagicBand+ bands? Well, the answer is yes, and no.

    When you unbox your MagicBand you will find that all bands are essentially the same size. This applies to both the most recent version of the MagicBand, and the newer MagicBand+ bands. But with both models there is a removable section of the band strap that will make them fit smaller wrists. My two daughters have smaller arms and wrists, and they both removed that part of the band strap, making them fit perfectly!

    BONUS TIP #1
    Please know that you can remove that extra part of the band without needing any special tools or hardware. You simply peel a part of the band strap end off, and you are done. I just suggest you try the band on first, and you can gauge if the shorter length will be right for your wrist.

    BONUS TIP #2
    Once you peel off that extended part of the band to make it shorter, it cannot be re-attached. I don't expect my teenage daughter's wrist to grow larger, so I don't worry about it, but it is important to know before you remove it.

    BONUS TIP #3
    Guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel can purchase MagicBand+ bands ahead of time at a notable discount. The selection available is pretty good, and the savings are worth your time. 

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
