    I ordered an upgraded MagicBand for one child but didnt see one I wanted for the other one so I picked a complimentary one and wanteto change later. I have an email that all bands will ship and MDE isn’t showing upgrade options. Am I out of luck to upgrade

    Hi, Suzann! 

    Thank you for visiting us hEAR at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. MagicBands have become a favorite feature of my family's Walt Disney World Resort vacations. We love the ease of using them around the parks and resorts to gain access to our resort room, purchase Mickey bars, and tap our way to fun when utilizing the FastPass+ system. It's hard to imagine a visit without them! 

    It sounds like you have placed an order for your upcoming stay in February, and your MagicBands will be arriving soon. I noticed on my recent order that once the selection to upgrade was complete, there was not an option to change the order so you will need to purchase a MagicBand if you do not wish to use the complimentary one that will arrive in the mail. If you decide to purchase additional MagicBands and would like it before your arrival, has a variety of options from solid colors to themed designs. You can also wait until your vacation begins to select one at one of the many retail locations across the Walt Disney World Resort. Once you've purchased your new MagicBand, it can be easily linked either by an in-store set-up or by linking it in My Disney Experience using the ID Number that is attached to the new band. They are interchangeable, so your Mouseketeer can start with the complimentary one and switch over to the newly purchased band once activated.

    I'm sorry I did not have better news, Suzann, but I hope one of my suggestions will work for your upcoming vacation. Please don't hesitate to reach out again if you have other questions. We are always happy to help.

    Have a magical day!
