    I was online and saw some cool magic bands that had images... When i went to my DisneyExperience and went to customize the magic bands i could not choose any special magic bands...I could only choose the color? how do you purchase special magic bands?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jody!

    You are right; there are some really cool MagicBands that feature different designs. You'll likely have a tough time choosing just one!

    To purchase one of these fun designs, you have a few options. First, take a look at DisneyStore.com, where you'll find MagicBand listed under Travel & Vacation FUNdamentals on the Disney Parks tab. Once there, you'll find many fantastic designs as well as accessories featuring everyone's favorites. (I love my Elsa MagicBand; she reminds of a December trip when we got snowed out of our return flight home. One more day to play in Walt Disney World!)

    Another option is to download the fantastic--and free--Shop Disney Parks app. On the app, simply enter "MagicBand" into the search bar and you'll find some MagicBands that are sure to be favorites, too. On the app, you can purchase your MagicBand and have it sent to your home, delivered to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel or just locate which shops in Walt Disney World currently have in stock the style you'd like to purchase. So convenient!

    Finally, as you tour Walt Disney World, you'll find many stores that offer a wall of MagicBands and accessories; pop into a shop to find that MagicBand that's just right for you!

    You'll be able to add your new MagicBand(s) to your My Disney Experience account, enabling you to wear any of them throughout your vacation. MagicBands' batteries last about two years, so if you are planning on returning to Walt Disney World within that time, you can use your bands for those trips, too.

    Happy shopping, Jody! Be sure to send more questions as you plan your visit. We love to help!
