    We are a family of four and are booked at a resort hotel next summer. We have been looking at upgrading the magic bands to the character ones. Are we able to order them one at a time because not all 4 that we’d like have been available on the website?

    Hey, Evie! This is such a great question, so I am glad you stopped by to chat with us. I, too, have been trying to find that practically perfect moment when all four of our favorite MagicBands are in stock on the customization page of My MagicBands and Cards. I wish I had better news for you, but at this time, guests are not able to customize just one band and do the rest later as they come in stock. So, our best option is to just be patient and use a little faith, trust, and pixie dust!

    The upgraded MagicBands are replenished often, but there is no exact time of day or day of the week that this is done. The MagicBand upgrades are extremely popular, so almost as quickly as they appear, they disappear. Oh, sweet Pineapple Swirl MagicBand, you will be mine one day!

    I do have a few quick tips to share with you that have seemed to work for us here on the panel. If your web browser has an incognito option, use that. Try checking first thing in the morning or late at night. Our reasoning has been that there are fewer people on at that time and if a drop happens, that can be a better chance of magic happening. One Cast Member suggested clearing your history and doing a hard reset with Ctrl F5. Another has said to use Safari as your browser. I wish using my Fairy Godmother magic wand was an option, but it has not seemed to work as well as these other tips!

    I hope these tips help you get all four MagicBands customized with your favorites! Sending lots of pixie dust your way for successful watching sessions. Thanks so much for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions!
