    If my kids don't like any of the MagicBands options (the colored ones) could I buy different ones at the park and connect it to My Disney Experience, tickets, etc?

    Hi Gary!

    The standard solid color MagicBands are complimentary to all guests who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and recently Walt Disney World has added the option to upgrade those solid color MagicBands to a specialty MagicBand for a discounted price.  The options are limited and inventory seems to change from day to day, but there could be some of these discounted ones your kids would like.  To view the options, login to your My Disney Experience account and choose "My MagicBands and Cards".  You'll see your next vacation listed at the top to customize your MagicBands.  You can scroll through the available options and choose to purchase them if you'd like.  The significant thing to point out here is that you have to order all of your MagicBands at the same time, so you can't order one now and then go back in later and order the rest.  They all have to be ordered at one time.  If your kids don't see any they like, check back another time as you still have some time before your December trip.

    If you would like to purchase MagicBands when you arrive at Walt Disney World, you can certainly do so.  In person at the parks is the best place to see all of the options available.  Linking them to your My Disney Experience account is super easy as well.  You can do it from the My Disney Experience mobile app under "My Profile", then "MagicBands and Cards" and then "Link a MagicBand or Card".  You'll enter the number that's on the back of the purchased MagicBand and assign it to a guest in your account.  That's it!

    You can also purchase MagicBands from home from Shop Disney online.  They'll be shipped to your home and you can link them the same way.

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
