    How do I get the $5 magic bands

    Hello and welcome to planDisney!

    It is funny how much I have come to rely on having a MagicBand+ in my possession each visit to Walt Disney World Resort! It makes things easier, from opening the door to your resort to tapping in at your reserved theme park for the day. Talk about convenience! 

    Unfortunately, the $5 MagicBands are no longer available; however, some great, reasonably priced alternatives are available. As a Disney Resort guest, you can purchase a discounted MagicBand+ through your My Disney Experience account. While the price is no longer $5, you will see that the costs can fit into any budget. Sometimes, you can find some MagicBands on sale via shopDisney, which can come in handy if you want to have a MagicBand+ in your possession before you arrive. 

    We are here if you have additional questions; please let us know how we can help.

    Have a magical stay!
