    How often are the upgraded magic bands changed or are they the same designs all the time?

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Kelly!

    You're as welcome as can be here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, so thanks for your great question. One of the most exciting parts of an upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation is getting our MagicBands in the mail. For us, this is the reminder that our trip is right around the corner, and the magic is already beginning!

    Although everyone in my family loves picking out different solid color MagicBands each trip, I couldn't help but get excited when I saw the brand new option to upgrade your MagicBand design in My Disney Experience. For a small fee, that is a fraction of the price of what these MagicBands cost in the parks, you can choose from a variety of designs featuring attractions, Characters, or your favorite Disney films. I decided to browse the selection of MagicBands available for my upcoming trip over a couple weeks. I noticed that the stock and choices of MagicBands offered for this upgrade are constantly fluid. One day I saw some designs in the morning that were no longer available in the afternoon, and the following day I saw some other new designs. Since this program has become very popular, it seems that stock may be limited on some of the bands as more and more Guests take advantage of this feature. My recommendation is to upgrade as soon as you see a design you like so you don't miss your chance. I saw a Haunted Mansion MagicBand option and just HAD to have it, so I ordered right when I saw it. My son is also excited for his colorful rainbow Mickey Mouse MagicBand! It is such a fun way for you to add a little more personalization to your trip.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions about your magical vacation. Have a Fantasmic day!
