    Looking for original magic bands not the magic band +? Are they still available?

    Hi Rachael!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    I enjoy using my MagicBand as it keeps everything simple and all in one place!   I prefer to use my phone as little as possible so that I completely stay in the moment of my holiday.   As a bonus, MagicBands are also completely waterproof so if you are swimming or visiting a water park you have everything handy on your wrist, and you can store your valuables and phone safely away in a rented locker.

    The version of Magic Bands that you want to use (MagicBand 2) is still available. I know this for sure because, to date, I haven't used a MagicBand+, so I also know you can still buy them but you may have to search a little.  

    You will find MagicBands for sale all over Walt Disney World Resort.  Disney Resort hotel gift shops also stock a smaller selection - but always be sure to check your hotel's shop because this is where I found my perfect MagicBand 2 last year!

    For wider selections, I recommend the Emporium on Main Street USA at Magic Kingdom Park, Creations Shop at EPCOT, and at Disney Springs - World of Disney or D-Tech on Demand at Marketplace Co-Op. also sometimes has the older version on sale so keep checking there because they frequently update their stock.

    It should be noted that guests from the United States staying at a Disney Resort hotel can pre-order their MagicBands from a wide selection on My Disney Experience, and have them delivered to their home address.  Both MagicBand 2 and MagicBand+ were available last time I checked.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions, and you can send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation!
