    How do I get the Magic Bracelet

    Hey there, Otto, and welcome to planDisney! 

    I think you’re here to talk about MagicBands, but I’m going to be honest - not calling them Magic Bracelets is totally a miss on Disney’s part! I would definitely want to wear a Magic Bracelet. But these bands are still really magical! They allow you to tap into the Theme Parks, open your hotel room door, charge purchases to your Disney resort room, and so much more!

    MagicBands are available for purchase through ShopDisney, your My Disney Experience account, or Physical Retail locations. Purchasing through ShopDisney is quick and easy, and if you time your purchase right, there may be a discount available for you to apply to your cart. You get your MagicBand and possibly save some coins along the way. Every bit of savings should equal extra snacks in the Theme Parks if you ask me! If you purchase your MagicBand through ShopDisney, make sure to link it to your My Disney Experience account before your vacation arrival date. You can find the steps to link your MagicBand here

    If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel as part of your visit, you can also purchase a MagicBand through your My Disney Experience account. Guests who have upcoming hotel reservations will also have pre-arrival exclusive offers for MagicBands in their My Disney Experience account. This offer not only provides unique band options but are gives you a discount! Here we go saving coins again! 

    MagicBands are also available for purchase at physical retail locations throughout the Resort at Disney Resorts Collection hotels, Theme Parks, and Disney Springs. Selection and availability vary by location, but you can find unique MagicBands when shopping in person. If you purchase a MagicBand from a retail store or kiosk, be sure to link it to your My Disney Experience account using the steps above. 

    I hope this helps, Otto! The magic awaits!

    Until Next Time,
