    Hi. We originally were staying off site for our next trip, but found a deal on site we couldn’t pass up. I already purchased our magic bands and linked them. Is there a way to defer the free ones that we’ll get for now staying on site?

    Hello Danielle, and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    Let me be the first to congratulate you on finding a great deal for your upcoming trip. Nothing compares to staying at a select Disney Resort Hotel on Disney property. It definitely adds more magic to an already magical vacation. I also wanted to tell you that a guest can never have too many MagicBands, at least in my opinion. I have collected several of the complimentary MagicBand and a number of limited and special event MagicBands as well.

    You can use both sets of MagicBands interchangeably during your trip if you want to color coordinate with your outfit of the day. They will all be linked to your My Disney Experience accounts.  However, if you want to decline your complimentary MagicBands, you can log in to your My Disney Experience account and click on the “MagicBands and Cards” tab. You will see a list of your MagicBand Orders. Click on the information to get started. You may need to confirm your shipping address first. Instead of customizing your MagicBand, you can click to “Decline MagicBand” for each member of your travel party, so a new set will not ship to you. If you opt to keep the extra set, you can customize the color and personalize each MagicBand with a name or nickname for each member of your travel party. Just remember if you will be arriving by air and using Disney’s Magical Express from Orlando International Airport, to pack your MagicBand in a carry-on bag. You will need it to unlock the door to your Disney Resort Hotel room. Have a wonderful trip, and if you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
