    Our planned vacation occurs starting the Sunday following Thanksgiving 2022. We will be staying at the Dolphin resort. How far in advance can we order Magic Bands? What is the price point of solid colors? Will advance purchase discounts be available?

    Hiya, Robert! I'm so glad you brought your question to us at planDisney!

    Oh boy, you'll be heading to The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the year. You're sure to find magic waiting for you around every corner, especially since The Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration will still be in full swing! Be sure to check out all of the holiday offerings in each of the parks, and you won't want to miss the glowing Beacons of Magic that light up the nighttime landscape. 

    I think you're going to love the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, which is just a leisurely walk away from both EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios! At this time, Guests staying at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel aren't currently eligible for discounted MagicBands. But Hakuna Matata! No worries! There are a few options available to you and I think we'll be able to find just the right solution.

    If a MagicBand is a dream your heart is making, you're still able to purchase them through shopDisney! While I don't currently see solid colors available, there are a lot of styles and variations that you can use on your trip and will make great keepsakes once you're home from your magical vacation. MagicBands are available for you to purchase at any time and new styles and colors are often released throughout the year. If you decide to buy a MagicBand through shopDisney, you can then link this purchase to your My Disney Experience account online! 

    I would also love to introduce you to a magical alternative to MagicBands! Robert, have you heard of Disney MagicMobile service? This service is available through the My Disney Experience app and can be used with eligible iPhones, Apple Watch, or Google Pay-enabled Android phones. Disney MagicMobile service is similar to MagicBands in that it allows you theme park entry and access to Disney PhotoPass pictures! To set up this complimentary service, log into your My Disney Experience app and tap the icon that looks like three stacked lines in the bottom right corner. Tap Disney MagicMobile and choose what your pass looks like by clicking Change Pass Style. If you have an iPhone or Apple Watch, you can even tap the plus sign in the upper right corner to add this to your digital wallet. Just hold up your pass to the "tapstyles" and access the theme parks just like you would with a MagicBand!

    Robert, if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to visit us again. After all, you've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon!
