    Do I have to order my magic bands in advance or can I get them when I arrive?

    Heigh-Ho Marjorie Claudia,
    I am happy to help with your curiouser and curiouser Disney MagicBand inquiry. Disney MagicBands are both functional and fashionable allowing Guests not only to access their Walt Disney World tickets, sync Disney PhotoPass pictures but also if staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, gain access to your room and have charging privileges all while sporting your DisneySide with this handy dandy wristband. Disney MagicBands come in a variety of colors and designs and can be purchased on shopDisney or at many of the shops around the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Because your visit is just around the River Bend and you need to consider shipping time I recommend waiting until you arrive. The shops, at the Walt Disney World Resort, have a wider variety and once purchased can easily be linked through your My Disney Experience. Cast Members can happily assist with the process. And until you find your Practically Perfect Disney MagicBand, Guests can receive a hard copy ticket called a Key To The World Card which is used exactly the same way. Guests can be assigned one by visiting the Front Desk of their Walt Disney World Resort or any Guest Relations/Ticket Counter located outside of all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks. 

    As your Magical Arrival Day approaches check out our Instagram (@planDisneypanel) and our Panel Extras for more Vacation Planning tips and get comfortable navigating your My Disney Experience mobile app. This is your vacation hub. So many exciting additions, such as Disney Genie, Disney Genie+ and Lightning Lanes, have debuted in order to help plan every single moment of your magical and memorable visit. 

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

    Amy M.

Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
