    I have 6 people in my party but only 3 has chosen magic bands. The other 3 want them but are waiting for more to come out. Can the first 3 that have chosen check out? That way they are reserved and do not sell out.

    Hi Lisa, welcome to planDisney!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is getting closer and closer every day. I share your excitement about the new D-Tech (Disney Technology) that was recently released as part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration. MagicBand+ has some really cool features like its ability to interact with nighttime spectaculars and the Fab 50 character statues. It also has some practical features like its ability to be recharged.

    Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel can purchase MagicBand or MagicBand+ designs online and receive a pre-arrival discount. To receive the discount, all members of your party must select or decline a new MagicBand before you are given the option to checkout. The "Decline a new MagicBand" option appears directly under a person's name after you click "Select."

    I understand your desire to purchase your favorite MagicBand designs before they sell out. There's always an option for individuals to purchase MagicBand designs on shopDisney or upon arrival without a discount. Keep in mind that MagicBands purchased online with a pre-arrival discount come linked to a My Disney Experience account whereas MagicBands purchased on shopDisney or on Disney property require linking before use. I recently purchased a MinnieMouse Bow MagicBand+ with a pre-arrival discount connected to my upcoming ladies' trip; my husband purchased a Navy MagicBand+ on shopDisney. We'll both have a great time experimenting with our new D-Tech in the parks this year.

    Enjoy tapping into the magic of Walt Disney World Resort, Lisa. If you have any more trip-planning questions, you know where to find us.
