    We will be heading to WDW in August this year but will not be staying in a Disney Resort or Hotel. Is it possible to order customised magicbands? Can my 2 year old (who will be turning 3 during our visit) also have a magicband?

    Hi Sam,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question!

    The answer to your first question depends on where you live. If you live in the United States, then, yes, it’s absolutely possible for you to purchase a MagicBand at the Disney Store. You will then be able to personalize it with MagicBandits and sliders, all before your visit to Walt Disney World Resort. I don’t believe, however, that you can get MagicBands purchased through the Disney Store personalized with your name on the back, but I would contact the Disney Store in order to see whether it’s possible. 

    If you don’t live in the United States, however, then I’m sorry to say that they can’t be shipped internationally. You can still, however, purchase a MagicBand at any one of the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks or at Downtown Disney. You will then be able to link your MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account and Theme Park Tickets either at the Merchandise Location at which you purchased your MagicBand, or at Guest Relations. If you purchase your MagicBand this way, then I’m almost positive that you can’t personalize it with your name. But, because Walt Disney World Resort is constantly updating and improving its MagicBand-related services, I would definitely ask the Cast Member helping you to see whether this is now a possibility. 

    Finally, yes, you can definitely purchase a MagicBand for your 2 year old. My 2 year old son already has 3! Just make sure to make it smaller by peeling the outer band away from the inner band when you’ve purchased it. Ask the Cast Member at your purchase point for assistance if you’re not sure about how to do this. 

    Have a Magical Day,
