    I am not able to customize new magic bands for our new vacation reservations this Dec. When I click on customize bands the old bands are the only ones that appear. How can I customize new bands, old ones are long gone... Thank you

    Hi Katelynn,

    Thanks for your question. The MagicBand customization area confuses a lot of guests, so I'm happy to help clarify the situation for you. Beginning in January 2017, the complimentary MagicBands for guests at the Walt Disney World resorts switched to the updated version. The new MagicBands have a wider face and a removable disc that can be attached to a lanyard or carabiner instead of the bracelet.

    Although the photo in My Disney Experience still shows the original MagicBand style, don't worry. When you choose your color and the nine-character moniker you want on the inside, you will receive the new design. At the moment, the new style comes in the same colors as the original -- grey, blue, green, orange, yellow, pink, red and purple.

    You should receive your MagicBand shipment about three weeks before your vacation begins.

    Meanwhile, you can begin thinking about other plans for your December visit. Your window to make advance dining reservations will open soon. That's my favorite part of the planning!

    Please let us know, Katelynn, if you have any more questions. The Disney Parks Moms Panel is always happy to assist. Enjoy!
