    Hi! I have a Very Merrytime Cruise in December and I was thinking about buying a DisneyBand+. I heard about others having a $10 discount on the bands. Is this true? If so, how do I get the discount.

    Hello, Nancy! Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question. 

    There’s nothing better than celebrating the merriest season of all with Disney Cruise Line. The ships are beautifully decorated, and Christmas cheer fills the air. Special experiences include a festive tree-lighting ceremony, hugs with Santa Claus, story time with Mrs. Claus, and lots of themed crafts, treats, and special drinks. 

    The good news is that DisneyBand+ can be purchased in the onboard shops. Unfortunately, the pre-arrival discount has ended. You can purchase a band online if your departure is within 45-11 days. Visit Already Booked > DisneyBand+ for more information. 

    If you pre-order a DisneyBand+, the band arrives linked to your profile. You can pair the device via Bluetooth if you plan to pick up a band once you board. This functionality is only available via the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app once you connect to the ship’s Wi-Fi.

    You can use the band to board the ship, access your stateroom, and pay for onboard purchases. Plus, there are a few extra surprises built in. Just ensure you charge your band frequently so it’s ready to go. For security purposes, you’ll still need your Key to the World card and photo ID when you visit ports of call. 

    I wish you smooth sailing as you plan for your exciting voyage. If you think of anything else, please visit us again. We appreciate your support!

    SEAS the adventure!
