    I ordered our magic bands from Shop Disney (way better choices!) without thinking about the personalization until afterwards. Now I’m kind of sad that our names won’t be on them. Can I get them engraved somewhere once we arrive at Disney?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ryleigh!

    I, too, love the selection of MagicBands available on shopDisney.com. And there are even more choices available at Disney Springs and the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park and hotel shops, too. As Annual Passholders, we visit Walt Disney World Resort frequently, and I usually can’t resist picking up a new MagicBand on each trip. (A couple of weeks ago I grabbed an adorable limited edition Dooney & Bourke MagicBand with this year’s Epcot International Food & Wine Festival logo on it!)

    Unfortunately, the trade-off with these MagicBands is that they can’t be personalized like those that come with a Walt Disney World Resort hotel stay. Since that personalization is inside and against our wrists, though, I’ve found that to be an OK trade-off. There are only three of us, so it isn’t hard for us to keep straight whose custom MagicBand is whose, but my daughter and I do have one set of matching MagicBands. For those, I just used one of the vinyl name stickers I ordered for her school supplies to stick on the inside of hers to tell them apart. You could also use something simple like a colored dot sticker to keep them identified, too.

    Hopefully these tips will help you remember whose MagicBand is whose. I hope you have a wonderful visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Ryleigh! Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
