    How can I get discounted magic bands?

    Hi Kimberly, welcome to planDisney!

    Birds fly south for the winter, much like smart humans planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Who needs to build a snowman when you can build an art collection at the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts? This Guest-favorite festival kicked off this week and I am living for the DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concert Series clips I've watched (and rewatched) on social media.

    MagicBands are the magical accessory that turns your wrist into a magic wand at theme park entry, Lightning Lane entrances, with Disney PhotoPass photographers, etc. Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can order MagicBands online at least six days in advance for a discounted price. Here's how:

    1. Make sure your Disney Resorts Collection hotel reservation is linked to your My Disney Experience account.
    2. Access the MagicBands and Cards page of your My Disney Experience account. 
    3. Scroll down to the information about "Your MagicBand Order" connected to your hotel reservation and click "Get Started." Note the number of days you have left to complete your order due to the shipping timeline.
    4. Select a MagicBand, MagicBand 2, or MagicBand+ design for each member of your party. The special pre-arrival price will appear when your cursor crosses over each design. If a member of your party does not wish to order a MagicBand, click "Decline a New MagicBand" under their profile picture instead of selecting a design. Everyone in your party must select or decline a MagicBand before you can proceed to checkout.

    If you order your MagicBands more than ten days before your check-in date, they'll be shipped to your home. If you order your MagicBands six to ten days in advance, they'll be shipped to your Disney Resort hotel. All pre-ordered MagicBands will arrive linked to individuals in My Disney Experience, but MagicBand+ designs must also be charged and paired to your mobile device before use.

    I hope this information gets you one step closer to making hands-free Disney magic, Kimberly. As your check-in date gets closer, please reach out to planDisney with any other trip-planning questions.

    Choose magic,
