    My family is doing a Day trip to Magic Kingdom and it is my youngest two's fist visit. We are trying to buy Magic Bands. We are not staying on property and cannot find a way to pre purchase them. Is there a way or do we have to wait?

    Hi Charisse!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney and I'm so happy to help you get ready for your little ones' first visit! Be sure to grab complimentary First Visit Buttons for them so Cast Members and other Guests can help them celebrate their special trip!

    MagicBands are an awesome addition to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation because you'll be able to use them to access your theme park tickets, Lightning Lane reservations, and Disney PhotoPass account with just the touch of your MagicBand. Since you aren't staying at a Disney Resort hotel, if you would like to purchase them before your visit, you can purchase MagicBands from shopDisney, which will be shipped to your home.

    Keep in mind that MagicBand availability at shopDisney has been limited over the past several months and MagicBand+ is debuting sometime later this summer. So you may want to wait to purchase your MagicBands until you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort for the best selection. In general, over the past few months, there has been a much better selection of MagicBands available at the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels, and Disney Springs, so waiting may help you find the perfect MagicBands for your little ones! 

    Charisse, be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app because I think it's the easiest way to link your MagicBands to your My Disney Experience account, especially during your vacation. Also, let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
