    Hi Moms. My family and I are visiting Disney World in June. I wanted to order my Magic Bands now so I will have them when I'm ready to make my Fastpass selections. Will I automatically get the new Magic Band 2 or are they not available yet?

    Hi, Anne!

    In the middle of a cold winter, it sure is nice to think of sunny skies and warm temperatures in Walt Disney World. Your summer vacation will be here before you know it!

    You do not need your MagicBands to make your FastPass+ selections. If staying on property, you can make your selections when you hit your 60 day window. Just log into your My Disney Experience account and you can book your FastPasses online.  At that time, make sure you finalize your MagicBand customization, as the bands will be delivered to your door about 3-4 weeks prior to your vacation. When you receive your MagicBands, they will be linked to your account, so any park tickets, FastPass+ selections, dining credits, as well as entry to your resort room will be accessed with your bands. Any changes you make along the way will magically be updated for you. Make sure to pack your MagicBands, and keep them with you in your carry-on luggage as you will scan your bands to board Disney's Magical Express. I know - these bands can do it all!

    It seems the new MagicBands are rolling out, so while things always change, my best guess is that you will receive the new MagicBand 2.  I have MagicBands being delivered to my house any day now, and I am looking forward to seeing if they are the new ones!

    Good luck booking your FastPass+ selections!
