    Hi there! Are the magic bands on Amazon reliable or is it recommended to purchase them from Thanks!

    Hello, Seena! Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your great question!

    I am a huge fan of the MagicBand and the MagicBand+. The convenience of being able to use my band to enter the theme parks, unlock my Disney Resort Collection hotel room, and make purchases, cannot be beaten in my opinion. The ability to interact with select experiences with MagicBand+ is icing on the cake!

    While I have not purchased a MagicBand or MagicBand+ from Amazon myself, I would recommend being cautious and carefully reading the item description before adding anything to my cart and purchasing. I did a quick search to see what was currently available and only saw one actual MagicBand being sold (offered by the DisneyParks Store). The other items were accessories like security bands, skin decals, watch adaptors, etc., but not the MagicBand/MagicBand+ itself. Given the lack of options, and the site not being an official Disney website, I would recommend buying the perfect MagicBand/MagicBand+ from one of the following locations:

    I have found great options at Disney Springs, plus you can indulge your sweet tooth at Gideon’s Bakehouse afterward. My planDisney bestie, Susan, recommends the Triple Chocolate Chip and Pistachio Toffee Chocolate Chip cookie but also swears by the Original Peanut Butter Cold Brew. Find the perfect MagicBand and grab cookies and coffee, sounds perfect!

    I hope this helps you with your decision-making Seena! Feel free to come back with any other questions you may have!
