    I have just finished booking my Disney world trip and I want a magic band but I don't like the styles that is offered. Wold it be a good idea to wait a bit and see what comes or should I get one now?

    Hi June! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm sure you're getting excited about your upcoming vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth! I, too, am a big fan of MagicBands and have created quite the colorful collection over the years. I love that you can find a MagicBand that speaks to you and utilize it for so many aspects of your trip. So, let's get down to business about the MagicBand selection!

    I know that there seems to be a limited selection of MagicBands available currently, but have no fear! You do have a few options. If you do not like the selection available through your Disney Resort Hotel reservation, you can always check out the selection available through shopDisney. I currently see many solid color designs and a few character options, too.

    You can also wait to see if anything new pops up that you like or just wait until you arrive at The Walt Disney World Resort! I just returned from a quick trip to Walt Disney World and there were many options available at World of Disney in Disney Springs! The Marketplace Co-Op also offers a wide variety of MagicBands, as well as offering the option to create your own using their kiosks and printing system. You can even personalize them with your name!

    There is no rush in purchasing a MagicBand, as you can always utilize the MagicMobile service while you wait to find the perfect fit for you! This is a convenient way to experience the same features as a MagicBand, but directly from your phone.

    June, if you haven't heard, there is a new version of the MagicBand in the works, the MagicBand+. Though we're not exactly sure when it will be released, it will have some new interactive features that can make your vacation even more special. Keep your eyes on the Disney Parks Blog for more breaking news, but I'll keep my fingers crossed that the MagicBand+ comes out before your visit!

    Have a magical day,
