    I just discovered there are on demand stations. If we bought the solid color bands can we take them into one of these stations and pay for customization? Would you recommend 1st time visitors wait to buy the bands at the park due options or buy before?

    Hi, Shirley! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for stopping by with another great question. Customizing a MagicBand at one of the On Demand stations is a really cool way to bring unique pixie dust to your trip. Guests can use a variety of different band colors to complement a plethora of printing options. You can find these stations at the Marketplace Co-Op in Disney Springs, Tomorrowland Light & Power Company in Magic Kingdom Park, and at Star Wars Launch Bay in Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    At this time, there is not an option to insert a MagicBand to have a design printed on it. There are many available band colors to select, so if you do want to have one printed, just wait to purchase it as part of your On Demand design. I definitely want to encourage you, as first time visitors to Walt Disney World Resort, to wait until you arrive to purchase a MagicBand. You may find a practically perfect one in a merchandise location that you like best, or maybe the full On Demand customization may be your thing. If you wait until you get there, then I feel like seeing all of your choices in person can help you make an easier decision.

    You can get an idea of what is available at merchandise locations by using the Shop Disney Parks mobile app. Use it to narrow down options and then head to an On Demand station when you arrive to compare the choices there. If you decide to go with something you saw on the app, then you will be able to pull up availability in the app to see an exact location to purchase it. Once you purchase your MagicBand, make sure you link it to your My Disney Experience account so it can be used to access your theme park tickets and FastPass+!

    Thanks again for stopping by, Shirley, and please let us know if you have any other questions for us.
