    When do I get magic bands?

    Hi Ashley!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    Guests from the United States can pre-order their MagicBands via the My Disney Experience mobile app or online.  There is usually a good selection to choose from at a special pre-order price, and they can be delivered to your home address or to your Disney Resort hotel.

    If you would prefer to wait until you arrive, several places around the Resort sell MagicBands - Disney Resort hotel shops, Disney Springs (D-Tech on Demand, and World of Disney), and in the theme parks, the Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park, or Creations Shop at EPCOT both have a good selection, for example. 

    It might take a while until you find a design you love, so you can request Key to the World admission cards from the front desk - free of charge - which you can use to access your hotel room, make charges to your room and use for park admission. As soon as you purchase your MagicBand take it to your Front Desk and the Disney cast members will set it up for you.

    If you are visiting a water park - Disney's Typhoon Lagoon or Disney's Blizzard Beach (whichever is open during your visit) - it's useful to know that your MagicBand is waterproof.  This means you can use your MagicBand for park entry and purchasing anything during the day, without worrying about water damage.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions - you can also send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news about events that may be happening during your stay.
