    We are very excited to be traveling to Disney in August. We bought Magic Bands through the pre-arrival offer. Now that the Magic Band + is available, are we able to take advantage of a pre-arrival offer for this latest version?

    Greetings, Amye.

    Welcome to planDisney! I’m so glad you stopped by to chat about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I bet you can’t wait to experience everything The World’s Most Magical Celebration has to offer in less than two weeks. Hooray for reaching the final countdown!

    Unfortunately, once you have placed an order for a pre-arrival MagicBand, you will not be able to order another pre-arrival MagicBand or MagicBand+. I know that’s not what you were hoping to hear, but the good news is you can purchase a MagicBand+ once you arrive on property. You can check the gift shop at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel or merchandise locations throughout the theme parks. The Emporium in Magic Kingdom Park, Pin Traders - Camera Center in EPCOT, Discovery Trading Company in Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and Celebrity 5 & 10 in Disney’s Hollywood Studios are where you should look first in the theme parks, though availability is subject to change.

    Remember, your MagicBand will still have many of the same basic functionalities as the MagicBand+. You can use it to unlock your Disney Resort hotel room door, charge purchases to your room during your stay, and enter the theme parks to name a few. If you want to view a full comparison of the features of MagicBands and MagicBand+, just head over to the MagicBand+ webpage and scroll down to the “Compare Features” chart.

    Amye, I’m sorry I didn’t have better news to share with you, but I hope you have a spectacular vacation. Enjoy every magical moment!

    See ya real soon,
