    Hi, I would like to upgrade our magic bands but I noticed the website has a limited number of options compared to the park stores. Is there a way to see/purchase from the larger section of Magic Bands that are available in the park stores? Thanks Amy

    Hi Amy!

    Welcome to planDisney!  MagicBands are the perfect park accessory - allowing you to enter the theme parks, tap into Lightning Lanes, pay for food and merchandise, and so much more!  Over the years, I've acquired quite a collection and I usually like to bring a few with me on each park visit to coordinate with the park I'm visiting or my outfit of the day!

    Amy, when you have a reservation for a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection, you'll see an option to pre-order a MagicBand+ that you can use during your stay.  The choices available for pre-order are limited, but you can always shop at for a larger selection.  While you won't have your resort guest discount available here, I like to navigate to the sale page and look for any deals on MagicBands that may be available.  If you happen to find the perfect MagicBand after your arrival, you can quickly and easily link it to your My Disney Experience account to start using it right away!  

    If you're staying in the Disney Resorts Collection, don't forget that you can take advantage of online check-in beginning 60 days before your arrival.  You can then use your MagicBand+ and take advantage of Direct-to-Room Service so you can start your magical vacation even faster.  In 2025, resort Guests will enjoy complimentary entry to one of Disney's water parks on check-in day, which means you'll be sliding and splashing before you know it when you use online check-in!  

    Amy, I hope this information is helpful as you continue to plan for your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort!  Please stop by to see us again here at planDisney with any other questions you may have - we're all ears!
