    Good afternoon, I just recently booked our first ever Disney Vacation. We are going Dec. 27-Jan. 1st. We are staying at a Disney resort. My question is about Magic Bands, do I order them through my resort or online? Which is easier? Thank you

    Hi Wendy!

These MagicBands will be available to you in one of the many solid colors offered. You should be able to see your MagicBands and be able to customize those MagicBands with each person's name and the color of their choice.
