    We are planning a Christmas present for a Disney trip next year & wondering if magic bands can be ordered for the present opening itself or is that too far in advance ?

    Hello there! Welcome to planDisney, Jordain. We’re so glad you stopped by with your question today.

    Oh my goodness, that sounds like such a fabulous Christmas present, Jordain! Your family will be jumping up and down with excitement when they find out they will be headed to Walt Disney World next year! I bet the adults will be just as pumped as the little ones to take off on this magical adventure, don’t you agree?

    I love the idea of wrapping up some MagicBands to unwrap on Christmas morning! So, I’m so happy to share that you can absolutely purchase your MagicBands now, right through the shopDisney website. In fact, there are some really cute holiday options available in the shop, so you can pick up something festive to wear around the parks when you’re there next year!

    It might also be nice to put together a little gift box with the MagicBand, some holiday attire, and maybe a pair of Mickey ears for the family to wear on your trip. There are lots of great options to choose from, so I just know you will find something you love.

    I do hope you have a wonderful time on your vacation next year! In the meantime, if you have any questions as you continue planning, please don't hesitate to reach back out! We here at planDisney just love to help our fellow guests make the most of their Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Until next time,
