    If I order a magic band thru Shop Disney (instead of thru My Disney Experience), can I get the discounted ore-arrival price?

    Hey there Sarah! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question! You’re one day closer to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation and experiencing The World’s Most Magical Celebration

    Before I start, I should warn you that I’m a MagicBand lover! Over the years, I seem to have inadvertently amassed a small collection somehow. Not exactly sure how it happened though. Well...I might know how it happened. I know I don't need a new one every time I visit, but I still get a new one every single time! Do you think it’s time to admit I have a small problem? 

    Pre-ordering your MagicBand through your My Disney Experience account will qualify you for the discounted pre-arrival price. On my most recent trip to the parks, the solid color MagicBands were discounted by about half which is a great deal! Naturally, I scrolled right past those and selected the Thanos Infinity Stone MagicBand, which was just too perfect to pass up! You definitely can purchase Magic Bands separately through ShopDisney, but there is no pre-arrival discount available when you shop through that website. But I've found that the available options through My Disney Experience and ShopDisney are often similar, so I would review both options side by side to find the best price on the MagicBand you’re looking for.

    And since you still have some time before your visit, keep in mind that the MagicBand availability is always changing. Because of that, it may be worth it to wait a few weeks and check again to see if there are any new pre-order MagicBand options that you like. Lastly, if you’re traveling with a party, you can always order the other Guests in your party the pre-arrival priced MagicBands. Then with the savings, you can snag the MagicBand you want from ShopDisney! It’ll be our little secret!

    I hope this helps, Sarah! If you have more questions while planning, stop back by and ask me. Soon you’ll be immersed in the magic of Walt Disney World!

    Until next time,
