    How do I order magicbands and send to resort

    Hello Michael! Welcome to planDisney!

    I love the latest updates taking place at the Walt Disney World Resort. They truly are making the Guest experience more convenient than ever, and one of those conveniences has been the addition of the MagicBand/MagicBand+.  Being able to use my band to enter the theme parks, unlock my Disney Resort Collection hotel room, and make purchases cannot be beaten, in my opinion. On my latest trip I was introduced to the features of the MagicBand+ and the ability to interact with select experiences, it added a little extra pixie dust to my vacation.

    To order a MagicBand+ and send it to your resort, you will first want to log in to your My Disney Experience account from the Walt Disney World website. From there, you will hover over MyDisneyExperience and select My MagicBands and Cards. On the next screen, you will see the details for your upcoming vacation, including the names of all registered Guests. Select the “Get Started” box, which will take you to the next screen to make your band-style selections for each Guest and then the checkout screen. Here is where you will want to enter your resort address, which can be found on the main resort page (find your resort here) under the map on the right of the screen. It is essential to know that you can order bands as soon as you book your resort stay, and if you make these purchases 11 days before your reservation, they will be shipped to your home. If you are within 10-6 days of your trip, they will automatically be shipped to your Resort front desk. 

    If you are within five days of your trip, you can no longer purchase your bands in advance, but Hakuna Matata, bands are available at merchandise locations in Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, and Disney Springs. On my most recent visit, I found Pin Traders – Camera Center as I was walking into EPCOT and was pleasantly surprised by the large selection that they had. I didn’t know I was in the market for a new band, but I walked out with one featuring my favorite Adventureland attractions.

    I hope this information helps, Michael. If you have any additional vacation planning questions, please come back to visit us at planDisney!

    See you real soon!
