    Hi panel - I am super excited to be coming to WDW in Oct. I'm trying to arrange some of the premium magic bands for my trip. I've tried every day for several weeks but no designs are available - only plain colours. Is there an availability problem?

    Hi Caron, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us another question!

    I was absolutely thrilled to hear that Character and other Premium MagicBands would now be available for a fee for Guests staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. There are so many cute ones to choose from that it's going to be hard to pick just one for our upcoming Disney Parks vacation.

    From what I understand, this option was so popular that they sold out of non-solid coloured options more quickly than expected. Because of this, although they aren’t currently available, premium MagicBands will be available to purchase again soon, once they’re back in stock. I’m not sure when that will happen, so I would recommend that you keep checking your My Disney Experience account to see whether that option is “live” again. 

    Don’t forget that, because MagicBands can’t be shipped outside of the United States, you’ll need to pick your MagicBands up at your Disney Resort Hotel when you check in. It also means that you can wait until about 10 days before your arrival date to pick your MagicBands, which means that you should be in luck if you’re only scheduled to arrive in October.

    Have a Magical Day,
