    Is there magic bands anymore???

    Hi Kara and welcome to planDisney!

    MagicBands are my favorite piece of technology that Walt Disney World has introduced!  They add such a fun convenience to any Walt Disney World vacation since there's no need to dig around in your bag or pockets for various cards when all the magic is right on your wrist.  You can use a MagicBand to enter the parks, enter Lightning Lane attraction queues, open your Disney Resort hotel room door and pay for merchandise and Disney dining.  They come in so many fun colors and designs, so it's hard to choose which one to get!

    MagicBands are still around and can be purchased practically anywhere at Walt Disney World including in the gift shops at all four theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs.  The latest version, MagicBand+, can interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection and dance along with select nighttime spectacular shows by lighting up and vibrating. 

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel for your next vacation, you have the option of purchasing them at a pre-arrival discount.  To begin customizing your MagicBands, hover over the "My Disney Experience" tab at the top right of the Walt Disney World Website and then click on "My MagicBands and Cards" and then click on "Get Started".  You can view all of the options and customize the name on the back for each Guest in your party.  When you are finished, confirm your purchase.  They will be shipped to your home or waiting for you at the front desk of your Resort hotel.  If you have any MagicBands from a previous trip, you are more than welcome to bring those with you to use.  Disney states the battery life is about 2 years, so if you're within that range, they should still be operational.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
