    Hi! I ordered my daughter a special Magic Band for our upcoming stay. Another one that I wanted was sold out But now I can’t go back to order any other upgraded bands Will I be able to order the band I wanted when it becomes available again

    Hi there, Lisa!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! This Halloween will be one for the books as you spend it with Mickey and the gang at the Walt Disney World Resort. I love visiting the parks and resorts this time of yEAR because there's nothing more magical than being surrounded by the festive decor and having an opportunity to celebrate the holiday by attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. The festivities look extra special this yEAR with the new nighttime fireworks show, "Disney's Not So Spooky Spectacular!" Mickey's Boo-To-You Halloween Parade is probably my most favorite event of the evening as I always love to watch it journey down Main Street, U.S.A. surrounded by all the holiday colors and lights with Cinderella Castle in the background. There are two parties planned during your stay, so be sure to book your tickets early if you're interested in attending this ghoulish nighttime celebration. 

    Lisa, I'm sorry you've had some difficulty ordering an upgraded MagicBand using My Disney Experience. These MagicBands have been quite popular since they were introduced in May. I know I had a tough time ordering some for my stay last month. Unfortunately, once you've selected and purchased an upgraded band, you are not able to change your selection in the system. If your daughter has her heart set on a particular Magicband for your upcoming vacation, my suggestion is to see if it's available to order through ShopDisney. These bands are not offered at the lower rate, but you may have better luck finding the exact one she wants. Once you receive the band in the mail, you can link it to her profile through My Disney Experience. Another option is to wait until you arrive and let your daughter pick out a MagicBand in person. You can find them in most merchandise shops throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I'm sorry I did not have better news for you. Please let us know if you have any additional questions. We are always happy to help.
