    Hello, If we ordered magic bands thru My Disney experience can we still buy a character one from Disney Store or when we get to the parks and have them linked to our tickets (deactivate the ones we got in the mail from MDE)? thanks

    Hi Joan!

    Thanks for coming to the Disney Parks Moms Panel to ask this awesome question. I love the convenience of MagicBands for my Walt Disney World Resort vacations because I have my hotel room key, theme park tickets, Disney PhotoPass account access and FastPass+ reservations right at my wrist! I have amassed a nice little collection of MagicBands, a mix of solid color MagicBands from our resort stays and retail MagicBands with my favorite Disney characters, and I love to start a Disney day by picking out the MagicBand I would like to use that day.  You can manage your MagicBands through the My Disney Experience website or the My Disney Experience mobile app. When you receive your retail MagicBands, you will need to link them to your My Disney Experience account. Once linked, they will provide you with access to all of your reservations and entitlements. You are welcome to keep both sets of MagicBands active in your My Disney Experience account, if you choose. Or, you can deactivate your solid color MagicBands from the MagicBands & Cards page. Simply select the MagicBand you will no longer be using and select Inactive.

    MagicBand tip: my new favorite MagicBands are Retail MagicBands On Demand, where you can customize your MagicBands by picking a color, graphic design and even include your name on the outside of your band. You can find these MagicBands at either Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. in Magic Kingdom or in Star Wars Launch Bay at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
