    Once I purchase the upgraded MagicBands for my trip in June, can I change them if other styles become available? The one I want is available now, but none that my daughter likes.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa! You've asked a great question! Ever since the premium MagicBand upgrades became an option for Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests, they've been a hot commodity. In May, Disney started with 30 MagicBand upgrade options featuring favorite characters and designs, but inventory has been scarce at times, causing quite the buzz on social media (but not the Space Ranger)!

    When I was looking for some troubleshooting tips, I came across some fine print on the Disney Parks Blog. The disclaimer states: "Your credit card will be charged when you place your order. Once personalized, upgraded MagicBands cannot be canceled, returned, refunded, or exchanged, even if the hotel reservation is canceled." My friend and fellow Panelist, Sue, also did some investigating on this topic before her recent trip. She discovered that if you decide to go with one of the upgraded designs, then everyone in your traveling party must select theirs at the same time because they will all ship together soon after the purchase goes through. So, in other words, you can't order just one MagicBand at a time. Once you purchase the premium band for yourself, My Disney Experience won't allow you to go back in and order one for your daughter on a later date (she would be sent a solid color MagicBand when your band ships). 

    Lisa, since the MagicBands arrive reasonably quickly, you still have plenty of time before your trip. I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed that you'll both get your pixie-dusted choices!
