    How do I find the regular magic bands not the magic band+ to purchase? I am only able to see MagicBand + to purchase when I go to ShopDisney. We only want the basic magic band for our trip.

    Hi, Karen! It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you to planDisney. Thanks for choosing to be our Guest!

    I'm so excited to hear that you're getting ready to select your MagicBands. To me, a MagicBand feels a little like a magic wand that you wear. You'll be able to enter the parks, unlock your room at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel, and easily make purchases with just a tap of the band – like magic! Let's talk about selecting just the right MagicBands for the Guests in your travel party.

    Karen, while there are plenty of MagicBand+ options on shopDisney and available as a pre-order through your My Disney Experience account, there are also a few MagicBand 2 options (the original version you're looking for) available as well! If you have booked a vacation package (including a reservation at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and theme park tickets), you can head to the MagicBands and Cards page to select your MagicBand 2 prior to your trip. Just scroll until you see options that say MagicBand 2! You can also make your MagicBand purchase through shopDisney, then link them to your My Disney Experience account! While there isn't an abundance of MagicBand 2 varieties to choose from, at the time of this writing, there are some really fun selections (including Orange Bird, TRON Lightcycle / Run, and Mickey Mouse Dooney & Bourke)! 

    Before you arrive, be sure that you've spent a little time downloading and exploring the My Disney Experience app! This will allow you to check wait times for attractions, access virtual queues, and even mobile order food. With a MagicBand and the My Disney Experience app, you'll be able to unlock everything that Walt Disney World Resort has to offer!

    I hope I was able to point you in the right direction today! If you have any other questions, please write to us again. You've got a friend in me!

    Faith, trust, and pixie dust -
