    I also did not see an option to purchase a magic band for me and my husband. I just received a confirmation email with a bar code to show at gate. Can I do this now?

    Hi there Virginia, and welcome to planDisney! 

    You must be so excited that your very merry vacation is just around the corner. There's so much to zip-a-dee-do during the most festive time of year. If a visit to EPCOT is on your itinerary, don't miss the Holiday Kitchens and the Candlelight Processional at the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays. They're a few of my favorite yuletide offerings!

    Guests with reservations in the Disney Resorts Collection may purchase discounted MagicBands before they arrive at the Most Magical Place on Earth. In the "My Plans" section of the My Disney Experience website, there will be an option to "Choose Your MagicBands" under a qualifying resort reservation. If your plans don't include a stay at a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection, you aren't able to personalize and order MagicBands here. Instead, once you are in Walt Disney World, bring your confirmation e-mail and your photo ID to any Guest Relations location or theme park ticket window. A Cast Member will give you plastic Key to the World cards that will serve as your theme park tickets. 

    You are also welcome to purchase a MagicBand from shopDisney online or at any merchandise location in Walt Disney World and link it to your My Disney Experience account. Offsite Guests can use a MagicBand to enter the theme parks, link Disney PhotoPass images, and redeem Lightning Lane entitlements. 

    I hope this is helpful, Virginia. Best wishes for a wonderful vacation, and if there's anything else we at planDisney can do to make your trip even more jolly, don't hesitate to reach out again. 

    Happy holidays,
