    Hi! I’m wanting to know if I have to select a magic band for everyone in order to place an order? I do not want to decline a new magic band for someone else in my group, but they haven’t made a pick and I wanted to grab mine plus another before it is gone.

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Christy. I'm so happy to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! With The World's Most Magical Celebration well underway, it's an exceptionally exciting time to visit.

     Based on your question, you must be staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. That's super great! As a Guest of the Disney Resorts Collection, you'll be immersed in the magic of Disney storytelling even after you've left the theme parks. You'll also enjoy additional perks like complimentary transportation, Early Theme Park Entry, and of course, a pre-arrival discount on the purchase of MagicBands. When you place an order for MagicBands at the pre-arrival price, it's a complete order, meaning that everyone in your party needs to either select or decline a MagicBand at that time. Once the order is submitted, no changes to the order can be made. But not to fret! I have a few suggestions.  

     To start, I recommend gently nudging everyone in your group to finalize their selection sooner than later. Bribery never hurts! I know I'd certainly accept a bribe if it involved the promise of a Mickey-shaped snack in the theme parks! If someone in your group is reluctant to commit to a MagicBand, you may want to suggest they rely on Disney MagicMobile Service for your visit instead. My son recently decided he doesn't enjoy wearing a MagicBand, but fortunately, his Disney MagicMobile Pass works much the same!

     Not knowing the exact date of your arrival, you may want to consider shelving the MagicBand you have your eye on and waiting for the debut of MagicBand+. This new generation of MagicBand will be available any day now! Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for a MagicBand+ release date. I can hardly wait to hear the news!

     I hope this was helpful, Christy. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have! We'd love to help you plan a magical stay at the Walt Disney World Resort.
