    Do we need to order a new magic band if someone already has their own and we are sharing plans on MDE? Any other tips welcome! Thank you!

    Welcome to planDisney, Claire!

    Thank you for visiting us today with a great question. I admire folks who can control themselves and not purchase a different MagicBand every time they visit. I am guilty of always adding new bands to my ever-growing collection!

    Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can purchase MagicBands at pre-arrival prices by signing in to My Disney Experience and visiting My MagicBands and Cards. If someone included in your hotel reservation already has their own MagicBand, they are welcome to use it and not order a new one. Visit My MagicBands and Cards, locate your Disney Resort hotel reservation and select Get Started. My Disney Experience will guide you to choose a MagicBand for each Guest in your reservation. When you select a Guest, you can choose a MagicBand or, if they do not want one, click Decline a New MagicBand right under their name. Other Guests in the reservation who want to purchase a new MagicBand will still be able to do so. Guests who prefer not to use a MagicBand can stop by Front Desk to pick up a Key to the World card and use it instead.  

    planDisney tip: If you simply cannot resist a beautiful design and decide you must have new MagicBands, remember to place your order 11 days before arrival if you would like to have them shipped to your home, and at least six 6 days prior to your check-in date if you would like to have them shipped to your Disney Resort hotel.

    I hope this information is helpful, Claire! Come back to visit us real soon for more tips and advice as you plan your Disney vacation.

    Best magical wishes,
