    What does it mean when my MagicBands order says “engraving”? Just received my MagicBands and there’s no”engraving” that I can see.

    Hey there, Nancy. Thanks for visiting us here at planDisney. I see that you have a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth coming up in just a few short months, I bet you are getting so exciting! 

    Nancy, when you are customizing your MagicBand order there is a place where you can have your name or nickname added to your MagicBand. This "engraving" feature shows up on the underside of the actual MagicBand where the serial number is. So if you get out your MagicBand and flip it over, you might see your name or a nickname you entered there. It's an added way of keeping track of each and every person's MagicBand if they all look similar. However, this feature is not necessary for your MagicBand so if you don't have this on your band - no worries! 

    You can always personalize your MagicBand at home with special stickers or decals. I've ordered seasonal customization kits online before and they are pretty easy to apply and are really cute. A quick internet search will turn up all sorts of cute options for that. 

    Nancy, I also wanted to mention that if you don't want to wear your MagicBand at Walt Disney World you really don't have to anymore. If you have the MyDisneyExperience mobile app downloaded on your smartphone device it can literally do everything a MagicBand can do. I've gone away from using my MagicBand so much and pretty much exclusively only use my phone now. I can scan into the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, open my Walt Disney World Resort hotel room door, Mobile order food at quick-service dining locations, scan into the Lightening Lane at attractions and so much more. If you don't already have it downloaded, I highly suggest it and be sure to familiarize yourself with it before you go. It's a great vacation planning tool. 

    I hope this helps, Nancy. If you have more questions as you finalize your trip plans, please feel free to come back and ask me. I'd love to help. 

    Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
