    Was hoping to order a special Magicband and pay extra for it. After trying many times, have had no results or, not all the bands available are shown, only the complimentary ones. Is this a glitch? If we have no success, can we change it on arrival? Tk u.

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

    What did we do in a time before MagicBands? I love being able to have access to my theme park admission, Resort Hotel room, my FastPass+ selections and more right there on my wrist! When I have to go back home when my vacation is over, I always find myself trying to tap my MagicBand to pay for things, and unfortunately real life just isn't as magical as it is at Walt Disney World Resort.

    It sounds like you and I have a lot in common because I was thrilled when it was announced on the Disney Parks Blog that Resort Hotel guests will have the opportunity, at a discounted price, to upgrade their complimentary MagicBands to one of the new options that feature Disney characters and Disney Parks-themed designs. There has been a ton of interest in these MagicBands, and they have sold out multiple times since they were first introduced a few months ago. If you've been trying to order upgraded MagicBands and haven't seen any of the designs you're looking for, I suggest that you keep checking back in the months and weeks leading up to your trip to see what new options have been added. I've seen new ones periodically added over the last few weeks including a Haunted Mansion design and a brand new MagicBand that I hadn't seen before featuring characters from Toy Story 4! With your vacation coming up this fall, you still have lots of time to upgrade and customize your MagicBands. In fact, you can complete the process as late as 6 days before your arrival date, so keep checking back between now and then to see what's been added!

    Have a magical day, James David!
