    How do I get the $5 magic bands?

    Hello, Vanessa! 

    MagicBands are an amazing vacation accessory and a great vacation time saver. I absolutely love the easy theme park entry, the ability to unlock my Walt Disney World Resort hotel room door, and being able to charge purchases with the tap of the wrist; all without rummaging through a backpack looking for a card or ticket! And it feels even more magical when you find a great discount available for your MagicBand order!

    The $5 MagicBand offer was available back in 2021 for Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guests and has sadly been placed in the Disney vault. I am happy to share that Guests with reservations at a Walt Disney World Resort Collection hotel can purchase MagicBands through My Disney Experience with pre-order discounted pricing. Although the current cost is no longer $5, you can still save quite a bit of money by ordering before your arrival at The Most Magical Place on Earth. When you log in to My Disney Experience, you can view the discounted pricing under the "My Magic Bands and Cards" dropdown. All of the current discount pricing options will be shown here under the "Edit Order" link. 

    If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, there are still a few ways to save on your MagicBand purchase. I recommend watching shopDisney for special offer announcements. You might be surprised at how many vacation essentials you may be able to get for a promotional price before leaving for your upcoming adventure. Disney Visa Cardholders also qualify for select merchandise discounts online and in the theme parks. These can apply to MagicBand orders. This is another great way to save on your purchase. 

    I hope that this information is helpful when selecting a MagicBand for your upcoming adventure!
    We'll see ya real soon,
