    I only want to order magic bands for a portion of our party - is this possible?

    Hey, Katharine! MagicBands make our days in the parks so easy. Instead of keeping up with a small key card for each person (yep, we lost those many times years ago!), we just each pop on a MagicBand and head off in search of a magical adventure. I appreciate being able to, as a Disney Disney Resort Hotel guest, just tap that MagicBand to pay for dining and merchandise purchases. No worries about carrying around (and losing!) my credit or debit cards. Seriously, how awesome are those MagicBands?

    Walt Disney World Resort did recently begin offering upgraded MagicBand styles for guests. For a small fee, we can head to the My MagicBands and Cards section of My Disney Experience and pick out a stylized band and even customize the back of it. If you prefer, the complimentary ones in assorted colors are still available. I just played around with one of my MagicBand orders and see that the system will not let you customize bands for only select members of your party. In order to get the "Everyone Good To Go?" message that allows you to proceed to check-out, you must choose a MagicBand for each person. I can certainly understand how this may be a bit frustrating if you notice the must-have band for one person in stock but you are still wanting to hold out for a different band style for another person. When I was looking just now, I saw that the white band with red Minnie heads that I want was in stock, as was the "it's a small world"-themed one for my younger daughter. However, the Haunted Mansion one for my older daughter is not in stock, so I guess we will continue to watch and wait.

    Thank you so much for stopping by today to chat with us and I certainly hope you are able to complete your MagicBand wish list soon! Please stop by and let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your upcoming pixie-dusted adventure!
