    We are planning a 1-day trip to Magic Kingdom after Christmas. My question is when we purchase tickets, are we able to get Magic bands?

    Hi, Stephani! Thank you so much for stopping in to chat with us! I love MagicBands and the convenience they afford my family. With a flick of our wrists, we can be linked to important vacation plans, such as our park tickets, FastPass+ selections, and Memory Maker. At this time, MagicBands are provided at no additional charge to Guests staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and to Annual Passholders. If you are staying at a Resort hotel, then you should be able to customize them in the MagicBands and Cards section of My Disney Experience.

    If you are not staying on-property, you are welcome to purchase them for anyone in your travel party. They can be purchased before your trip through the Disney Store and the Shop Disney Parks app. If you prefer to wait until you arrive, you can also find a great selection in many merchandise locations.

    After you purchase your MagicBand, take a look at the back of it for a series of alphanumerics, which you can use to link it to your My Disney Experience account. If you do link several at once, you will assign each person in your party a band. Since these bands will not be customized with each person's name, you may want to put initials on them so you will not forget to whom each band was assigned. If you do have an issue linking a MagicBand, then any Guest Relations or merchandise location Cast Member will be happy to assist you.

    I hope you have a wonderful holiday with your family, Stephani! Please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your trip.
