    I noticed they only release a few new magic bands each day… Is it possible to only get 1 at a time through the Disney app? All 4 people going would like one but what if I only like 1 released that day, do I need to buy all 4 bands at the same time?

    Hi there Hanna, and welcome to planDisney!

    Bees will buzz, kids will blow dandelion fuzz, and you'll be visiting Walt Disney World in summer! I love vacationing during Olaf's favorite season. The vibes are excellent, with so many families enjoying time off from school together. You must be so excited and counting the days until the magic begins!

    When purchasing pre-arrival discounted MagicBands ahead of your stay in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you must complete your entire order at the same time. I completely understand your predicament; since MagicBand availability varies from day to day, it can be tricky to find a time when your entire party finds exactly what they're looking for. My family and I just went through this last month. We spent a few weeks checking the site daily and found that selection tends to be best in the morning. We didn't notice any day that consistently offered more than any other, so I recommend browsing the site and having each member of your group choose at least two MagicBands they would like. Then, place your order on a day when most of your family's first or second choices are available.

    Hanna, if someone in your family wants a specific MagicBand that isn't typically available, you can purchase it online or once you arrive at Walt Disney World. Many retail locations, including the gift shop at your resort, sell a variety of MagicBands, but large stores like Creations Shop in EPCOT, Emporium in Magic Kingdom Park, and World of Disney in Disney Springs will have the most extensive selection. This means forgoing the pre-arrival discount, but it allows your family to pick their favorite MagicBand. Since MagicBand+ has a rechargeable battery, it can be reused for future visits.

    I hope this is helpful! Best wishes for finding the perfect MagicBands for your family, and if there's anything else we at planDisney can do to make your upcoming vacation even more memorable, please come see us again. We're all ears!

    Have a magical day,
