    I'm staying at a Disney resort so I receive the free Magic Band/discounted Premium Magic Band. Can I only choose from the few premium bands they show with the basic colors or is there a way to buy my band through shopDisney with the discount?

    Hi there, Kristin! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I love picking out a special MagicBand for each member of my family before heading to Walt Disney World, so I was so excited when the Walt Disney World Resort launched the MagicBand upgrade option!

    Kristin, while you can not purchase the bands directly from shopDisney and receive the discount, the bands offered for the discount are changing almost daily! If there is one particular band that you have your eye on, I would recommend that you check back each morning to see what the current offerings are. When inventory is refreshed, you may just find your perfect fit!

    Thanks so much for coming back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and please stop back by if we can help as you plan your magical family vacation.

    We hope to see ya real soon!
