    Hii, i go to Disney in a 2 weeks. I was wondering if i decline the pre-arrival magic band if i could still buy one on property and be able to use it through out my trip. The pre-arrival ones weren't my favorite choice so i was just wondering.

    Hi Nicole, Welcome back to planDisney! Can you believe that your trip to Walt Disney World Resort is right around the corner? MagicBands are one of my favorite accessories while at Disney as it offers such a convenience! They can be used to open your resort room door, PhotoPass and most importantly, enter the parks!

    Nicole, I'm thrilled to let you know that you can absolutely decline purchasing a MagicBand prior to arrival. Once you arrive, MagicBands can be purchased at many merchandise locations within all four theme parks, at Disney Resort hotel merchandise shops, and in many locations in Disney Springs, especially my favorite World of Disney! The bands can be easily linked to your itinerary through your My Disney Experience account after purchase. Once the bands are linked they are ready for immediate use.  

    I want you to know that you have several options to access the magic on your upcoming visit! I highly recommend downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app ahead of your vacation and setting up Disney MagicMobile service. This service functions also allows Guests to enter the theme parks (with valid theme park admission and reservations), link Disney PhotoPass images to their Disney accounts, and charge purchases to their Disney Resort hotel. If you'd prefer to have a physical card linked to your account for use during your visit, simply visit a Guest Relations location for assistance.

    I hope this information helps you prepare for an exciting visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Nicole! Thank you again for visiting planDisney. We'll see ya real soon!
