    How do I pick our bands?

    Hello Jenna! Thanks for visiting planDisney today! MagicBands are just another part of the fun in planning your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Once you've booked your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, the easiest way to select your MagicBands is to visit the My Disney Experience app! Once you open the app go the menu. On my iPhone, this appears as three horizontal lines at the bottom of my screen. When you tap the menu, you will see a screen with various options from which to choose. Choose "Resort Hotel." When you come to the next screen, scroll down and you will see a series of options. One of those options is "Choose MagicBands." Now we're at the right place!

    When you tap "Choose MagicBands" you will be prompted to enter your Walt Disney World account username and password. Once you sign-in, you will be able to start the very fun process of selecting your MagicBands for each member of your group!

    It's important to know that a few MagicBands are complimentary with your vacation stays through the end of 2020! These complimentary MagicBands are typically the solid color MagicBands. These come in about seven different colors. Again, these are free with your vacation and they have all the functionality that you will need during your visit. Beginning in 2021, the Walt Disney World Resort will be introducing an innovative feature through the My Disney Experience app. This new app will be available on smart devices. While Guests will no longer need to have a MagicBand, they will still have the option of purchasing them if they choose to do so.

    I typically purchase MagicBands because they are just really cool and fun! When selecting your MagicBands, you will see various options from which to choose! There are some really cool styles! Choices include some of your favorite characters, attractions, resort hotels, and more! These are fun for kids and adults! Sometimes we surprise our kids with MagicBands or will let them pick their own if they already know about the trip. There are even more options available on shopDisney.com. All of these bands are not complimentary, but they are fun and add excitement to trip planning!
