    Is there an extra charge to upgrade to colored wrist bands? Where is the best and least expensive place to order groceries?

    Hi James,

    Thank you for visiting us today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I will be quick, as you only have a few more weeks until your vacation. Let's go!

    MagicBands are the best invention since sliced bread. They hold your Theme Park Tickets, FastPass+ selections, and Disney PhotoPass Service memories. And if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, they are your key to the room and your wallet too, as you can purchase food and merchandise, and charge these to your room account.

    As one of the many benefits of staying at Disney Resort Hotels, all Guests receive a complimentary MagicBand. You can even customize it by adding your name to the back of it, and select from one of several fun colors (red is my favorite). MagicBands with fun and exclusive designs are also available for purchase, and at select locations, you can even make your very own custom masterpiece.

    Many Guests get groceries delivered from Garden Grocer, Amazon Prime Now, or Walmart. There are a couple of Speedway gas stations within the Resort, and there other options nearby, all easily accessible via automobile, Uber or Lyft.

    One last tip: be sure you customize your MagicBands at least 11 days before you arrive, so they can be shipped to your home. And have them ready to board Disney's Magical Express. See you real soon!
