    My husband just booked our trip for November 2022 this weekend but we’ve not been given the option to buy MagicBands yet. When will that become available as I really want the 25th anniversary one! Also, any tips on how to celebrate an anniversary at WDW?

    Hello Katherine,

    Welcome to planDisney, and as the current UK Panelist, it's my absolute pleasure and delight to help plan towards your magical anniversary trip to Walt Disney World Resort in November 2022!

    Firstly, congratulations to both you and your dear spouse on the occasion of your anniversary!  My husband and I celebrated our silver wedding a few years ago with the jolliest of family holidays to Walt Disney World Resort.  During our stay, we indulged in some Enchanted Extras and other treats such as staying in a Deluxe Disney Resort hotel and by securing Advanced Dining Reservations to some of our favourite restaurants.  But our top splurge was treating our whole family to a Speciality Cruise onboard the super-swanky Grand 1 Yacht.  Onboard this decedent private cruise, my entire family of 16 enjoyed a memorable evening which concluded with a spectacular viewing of Happily Ever After direct from the Magic Kingdom Park!  Even though at present both Speciality Cruises and Happily Ever After are temporarily unavailable, I would hope that with a little faith, trust, and pixie dust as we continue to Return to a World of Magic they will be offered once again by the end of 2022.

    Thinking about your recently made Walt Disney World Resort booking for November 2022, I'm happy to share that in my past personal experience it can take at least 72 hours for a booking made with the Walt Disney Travel Company to appear in your My Disney Experience account.  After which, any MagicBands that are currently available for pre-purchase should, as if by magic, appear! As an additional resource, I also thought you may find these Frequently Asked Questions - Magic Bands & Cards to be a useful planning aid. 

    Oh Katherine, you sure are talking my language when you mention purchasing the very latest MagicBands!  I'm totally a self-confessed hoarder of MagicBands, and even though I could easily reuse still functioning MagicBands from previous trips, I can't help but add to my collection.  The limited-edition 25th anniversary MagicBand pays homage to the iconic 25th birthday cake decor on Cinderella Castle, and of course, would make the perfect addition to your own anniversary celebration. 

    I hope I've been able to provide a little insight for you today!  If I can offer any further help in ensuring your November 2022 trip to Walt Disney World Resort is practically perfect in every way, then please do pop back to planDisney to ask me another question.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
