    I'm planning a trip with friends for my wife's 30th birthday. The trip is a surprise for her and I wanted to give her a magic band as her birthday present. If I order hers ahead of time can I still do the others the standard way?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Bryan!

    A vacation is always a great birthday gift!  I'd love to help you plan this special surprise for your wife.  MagicBands are complimentary for Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests and may be customized through your My Disney Experience account.  Your entire party's MagicBands will be sent to your home address shortly before your arrival date.  If this time frame won't work with your special surprise, you can order a MagicBand at shopdisney.com or the Shop Disney Parks app.  Perhaps your wife would like a band featuring her favorite character or a color different from the complimentary bands.  Rest assured, any and all active bands that are linked to your wife's profile will work interchangeably, so she may choose which band she would like to wear each day of your vacation.  How about adding a special birthday ear hat or headband to your gift?  And of course no birthday celebration is complete without birthday cake!  You may choose to order a special cake ahead of time, or you will find celebration-worthy cupcakes and other treats throughout the parks and resorts.  For an extra special surprise, consider Disney Floral and Gifts.  Even if your trip isn't on your wife's actual birthdate, feel free to pick up a celebration button at the resort front desk or at Guest Relations.  It's perfectly fine to celebrate an unbirthday as well!

    Please write back if you would like more celebration ideas.
