    My magic band was accidentally made child size and now doesn't fit. Any suggestions apart from buying a new one?

    Hi Martha,

    Welcome back to planDisney!

    This is not magical at all! I wish I could undo the damage for you. The only suggestion I have is to consider adding it to a lanyard. Honestly though, I am always on a budget but, in this case, I would just purchase a new MagicBand+. I always like to have at least two with us in case we lose one on vacation. Everyone in my family (including me) has, at some point over the years, left the resort hotel without putting on a MagicBand or MagicBand+, so I started carrying extras for everyone in my backpack.

    As you continue to make plans, I hope you have your dining reservation day set and have plans to make those reservations when your booking window opens. If you are traveling with family or friends, I also hope you have plans for matching attire at some point. My girls and I always wear matching shirts at least one day of our trip.

    I assume you have already booked a vacation package. If so, it never hurts to keep checking the Special Offers. If a new one opens up that seems applicable to your dates, check the price to be sure you are getting the best deal. Although new Special Offers may not be applicable to existing reservations, I find it always helpful to keep checking.

    Martha, I hope you are able to get a new MagicBand+ in time for your trip. Pick one that is a basic color or go for one that might have more sentimental value. Either way, it will allow you easy access to the parks and your resort hotel room if you are staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Sending you a little extra pixie dust as you plan!

    Magic and memories,
