    Good Afternoon! I was wondering if you could tell me about a bit the new magicband options. I will be at DW in Sept and I would love the option to upgrade my standard free one. Will I be able to do this. Thank you!

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa!

    Just between you and me, I confess that I have a pretty big collection of MagicBands. I pick a new color every time I stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, I have a few to celebrate special occasions, one that's themed after my main girl Minnie Mouse and honestly, I could go on. That's why I'm so excited that there was an announcement on the Disney Parks Blog last week letting us know that Resort Hotel guests and Annual Passholders will soon be able to upgrade their complimentary solid-color MagicBand for one featuring their favorite Disney character or a fun design, all at a discounted price!

    As for when this new option is going to be available in My Disney Experience, we just don't know yet. The Disney Parks Blog let us know that it was going to be soon, and so far that's all the information we have. Like you, I'm also headed to Walt Disney World Resort in the fall of this year, so I hope it's soon enough for us to both get the MagicBands we want! I know I'm definitely looking forward to getting one to celebrate the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, because that will be the first place you'll hear about this new upgrade being available for purchase.

    Have a magical day, Lisa!
