    When ordering magic bands, do you have to order all of them at the same time? Or can they be ordered at separate times? For example, could I buy one of our family members theirs when one comes up they want, and me buy mine at a later date when I find one

    Greetings Katelyn, and welcome to planDisney with an excellent question.

    My favorite vacation souvenir is the MagicBand! I have over 50 in my collection and it’s still growing. MagicBands are a stylish piece of wearable technology that allows you to access all of the information in your My Disney Experience account with the tap of your wrist.

    The answer to your question depends on where you are ordering your MagicBands from. If you are a Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and you are selecting your pre-arrival discounted MagicBands, they all have to be ordered at the same time. You are not able to decline a MagicBand and order one from that option at a later date. Several of the MagicBands offered are usually limited edition and can sell out very quickly. My favorite is the 50th Anniversary MagicBands. If someone in your party is interested in a particular MagicBand, it’s best to order it as soon as possible. I would not suggest waiting too long for a particular style to become available, since quantities are limited.

    You can also order MagicBands from shopDisney, however, you would need to link the band to its guest before using it. You can have more than one MagicBand actively linked to your My Disney Experience account at one time. You could select a pre-arrival MagicBand with your reservation and order another from shopDisney.

    You also have the option to purchase a MagicBand when you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort. They are available in select shops of all resort hotels, select shops in Disney Springs, and most retail shops in all 4 theme parks.

    Remember all MagicBands allow you to open the door to your resort hotel room, access your Theme Park admission tickets, charge food and merchandise back to your room account, add PhotoPass photos to your Memory Maker account, and redeem your Genie+ selections at the Lightning Lane entrance. I hope you find the MagicBand of your dreams.

    See ya real soon,
