    I want the original MagicBands to buy for my trip coming up in October but I'm having trouble finding them. Can you tell me where on line I can find some to buy?

    Greetings, Micki and a warm welcome back to planDisney, thank you kindly for your loyalty in consulting us for your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Get ready to Fall into Magic at Walt Disney World Resort where you will enjoy themed events, festivities, souvenirs and treats. I am so happy to hear that you are planning on enjoying many entitlements using the beloved MagicBand, don't you just love the freedom of not carrying around backpacks or messenger bags, which I find so cumbersome?

    Micki, if you currently hold a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel reservation that is linked to your Disney account, by signing into your Disney account and accessing My MagicBands and Cards beneath the My Disney Experience planning area, you will have the option to pre-purchase your MagicBand (up to 10 days before your arrival) or MagicBand+ (up to 6 or more days before your arrival), for each member on your Disney Resort Hotel Reservation. 

    Alternatively, if you hold a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass, or are not staying at a Disney Resort Hotel then you are welcome to access your MagicBand 2 or MagicBand+ via shopDisney and it will be shipped to your current address. Micki, please do not be concerned about the "2" when you see MagicBand 2 on the shopDisney site. The "2" indicates the difference from the original MagicBand version and it distinguishes itself as offering greater functionality in terms of having the ability to remove the Mickey Mouse icon in the center of the band thus enabling you to keep the Mickey Mouse icon anywhere else other than on your wrist. I do this with my autistic son who does not tolerate wearing a MagicBand any longer. I have purchased a MagicBand (Mickey Mouse icon) puck holder to store it safely.

    MagicBands and the MagicBand+ are one convenient way to access Disney magic while on vacation. Another method which I am quite keen on is the contactless convenience of gaining entry into the theme parks by accessing my Walt Disney World Resort theme park admission from my digital wallet on my mobile device by using the My Disney Experience Mobile App and Disney MagicMobile Service.

    Micki, if you have not booked your Disney Resort Hotel yet, take a look at the current Walt Disney World Resort special offers, deals & discounts, or you can access these offers by referring to the Places to Stay tab on the main page of your Disney account online.

    It was such a pleasure assisting you today, Micki, have fun selecting MagicBand! Please feel free to stop by planDisney for some more tips and advice - see ya real soon!
