    Can you make the Magicbands larger?

    Hi Sue! 

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    MagicBands come in one size and can only become smaller not larger. However, I have a few recommendations for you that might work well. (My husband has rather large wrists. MagicBands do fit him but they can be tight so we have spent some time looking at options.)

    A friend of mine doesn't wear anything on his wrists: no watch, no bracelet, no MagicBand. Instead, he carries his MagicBand in his pocket.

    Did you know the center of your MagicBand can come out of the MagicBand?  On shopDisney, you can find a great Mickey Mouse MagicKeepers Lanyard Medal. You can pop your MagicBand 2 Icon (sold separately) into this Mickey-shaped MagicKeeper Medal and hang from your favorite Disney lanyard (also sold separately).

    I found some "puck holders" online. The MagicBand 2 Icon fits securely into the puck holder and then slides onto my watch. I do have to use some care when I am scanning my MagicBand as my watch can sometimes interfere with the MagicBand. However, it has been a great option for me and my husband. While his wrist is large, mine is very tiny. I'm basically in between a smaller modified MagicBand and the regular size. Having the flexibility to either wear a MagicBand or use the puck holder has been a great help during our vacations.

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please let me know if you need any other information as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
