    When ordering magic bands through MDE, do you have to order for your entire group at the same time? So far, the bands each of our group of 10 would like aren't included in the available selection at the same time. I appreciate your help!

    Hi Jeni!

    Thanks for coming back to see us at planDisney!

    You're going to love using MagicBands! They are the easiest way to access your theme park tickets, Lightning Lane reservations, and Disney PhotoPass account during your vacation. Plus, since it sounds like you're staying in a hotel that's part of the Disney Resorts Collection, then you'll be able to use your MagicBand to access your hotel room and make purchases during your trip.

    If you're purchasing MagicBands using the pre-arrival discount that you receive as a Guest of one of the Disney Resort hotels, then you will need to order the MagicBands for everyone on your hotel reservation at the same time. So if everyone in your group of ten is staying together under one reservation, then you will need to order all ten of your MagicBands at the same time to take advantage of the discount. Otherwise, if your group will be split across multiple hotel reservations, then you can place one MagicBand order per hotel reservation.

    I know it can be a challenge placing the perfect MagicBand order because it's often tricky for my family of five! Keep in mind that MagicBand availability is always changing, so I recommend that you continue to check back for new MagicBands to be released. Also, since availability is limited, once you find the perfect selection MagicBands, be sure to order them as soon as possible because you don't know how long they'll be around!

    Jeni, let us know if we can help you again as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
