    I would like to know instead of using my phone in Disney I would like to purchase magic bands for our vacation for my family and realize that they cost $5 per person how do I go about purchasing them

    It looks like you will be kicking-off your summer with a great vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort! While Guests can use the newly introduced MagicMobile feature on their smart device to get many of the same features as a MagicBand, it is understandable that some Guests prefer to still use MagicBands! They are so fun! Selecting the "just right" MagicBand has become a planning tradition in our house!

    Theresa, when you book your Walt Disney World Resort vacation you will have access to some discounted MagicBands! Some of those MagicBands might cost as low as $5. You can purchase discounted MagicBands on your My Disney Experience account only after you have your reservation booked. Once your reservation is booked and you're logged into your My Disney Experience account, scroll down to where you see a heading that states, "Which MagicBand is Your Favorite?" Underneath that heading you'll see another heading that states, "Choose Your MagicBands." Click on that heading. You'll come to a new page that has each Guest in your party listed. Under each Guest's name, you'll see a blue button that states, "Select." This is where you will begin selecting the perfect MagicBands for everyone in your group! 

    You'll see photos of each available MagicBand on that page! When you hover your mouse over the bands, the price will be revealed below the photo. You'll notice that some bands are $5! You might also see a small box that states, "Grid View." I prefer to click that because it displays more MagicBands on the screen. For other MagicBand options, Guests can also visit shopDisney.com!

    Have a great visit in June, Theresa! I am so excited for you!
