    Our Disney trip is in 3 weeks. Trying to wait on the magic band+. Is there a chance they will be available in time for our trip or should we just order the regular ones?

    Welcome, Sarah!

    I am so very glad that you found planDisney. We love all things Disney, and planning is what we do best!

    You are not alone in your anticipation. I cannot wait for the new bands to be available for Walt Disney World adventures. There is so much that I love about current Magic Bands, and I am so excited for the day that I will be able to experience the new features that will make Magic Band+ a magical must-have. A release date has not been announced as of this time. We do know the bands will be available sometime in 2022, but the exact timeframe is still to be revealed. I truly wish I could wave a magic wand and make them appear today! Your trip is coming up so very soon. How exciting! I do want to mention the current shipping timeframes for traditional Magic Bands to be delivered ahead of a Walt Disney World vacation. If you would like to have your Magic Bands delivered to your home before your arrival, they must be ordered no later than 11 days before your check-in date.  Should you prefer to have your bands waiting for you at your hotel, you will have six days prior to checking in to place this order. The window for advance order is still open for your arrival date, but not for much longer. If you are still unsure if you should preorder or wait and see, I say follow your heart. Are you leaning towards waiting for a possible launch date, but concerned that may lead you without your favorite magical accessory? Hakuna Matata, Sarah. You can always purchase a Magic Band throughout Walt Disney World after you arrive. You will find a wide variety of styles in all four theme parks, in Disney Resort Hotels, and throughout Disney Springs. Once you find the perfect band a Castmember will be able to link it to your account for immediate use. 

    Have a magical time!
