    I ordered magic bands 2 days ago for a trip that's in 2 months. May I change the colors somehow? The new colors came out today and I'm bummed that I didn't get the chance to choose from those. Elise :)

    Hello Elise!

    Welcome back to planDisney! For my kids, choosing their MagicBands is part of the pre-trip excitement. I am so happy to see more solid color bands available, and I am particularly fond of Raspberry, Dark Purple, and Blue Iris. While MagicBands are no longer included with your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel stay, we enjoy using them and plan to order MagicBands for our summer visit.

    Unfortunately, once your MagicBand order is customized and paid for, it cannot be changed, canceled, or refunded. I’m sorry that this is probably not the answer you were hoping for, and you may be disappointed. I’m not sure if you ordered a deluxe band with a design already on it, or if you ordered a solid band, but if you ordered a solid band, know that many Guests decorate theirs before arrival to make them personalized and more fun. Try decals, nail polish, and even glue on some gems for that added bling! I recommend a layer of clear nail polish over your final design to help seal it and keep it looking good throughout your visit. Also know that MagicBands are linked to the Guest, and not the specific trip. This means if you have older MagicBands from previous visits they will still work if the battery is still good, or you can purchase additional MagicBands and link them to your account, and all of them will work during your trip. While purchasing additional MagicBands is not the most cost-effective, if you really had your heart set on the perfect style, know that you can have multiple active MagicBands at a time.

    I hope you have a truly magical visit, Elise, despite feeling a little bummed right now. Whatever MagicBand you have, know that it still opens all the joy, thrills, adventure, and magic of a memorable Walt Disney World vacation.
