    We are planning a trip the end of November to Walt Disney World. Where and when can we purchase magic bands? We are stay at the Wyndham Bonnet Creek Hotel. I know they do not participate, but would like to use the bands for tickets and eats.

    Hiya Holly! I'm so glad you thought of planDisney with your vacation planning question! 

    I happen to be an avid collector of MagicBands! The name of the game is convenience for me and nothing is more convenient than this multi-purpose, do-it-all gadget! I can see why you want to make sure to utilize this during your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    You are right in that your MagicBand will not function as a room key while staying at Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek, but that doesn't mean you should miss out on all the other convenient uses during your stay. Your MagicBand will still work to enter the parks, pay for meals and shopping at participating locations and collect any Disney Photo Pass images you take throughout the parks. Before jumping into all the juicy shopping details, I'd like to point out that if you have a MagicBand from a previous trip to Walt Disney World, you can use it again and again! Just make sure the MagicBand is one that has been assigned to you personally, as they are not transferrable from Guest to Guest.

    I have more great news, Holly. If you'd like a new MagicBand, you can purchase one as soon as now! The best option is to purchase directly through shopDisney, where you'll find a plethora of options, from solid colors to your favorite characters available for purchase. 

    You may also choose to wait until you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort and visit Disney Springs, where you will find "happily whatever you're after," which in your case is a new MagicBand! World of Disney® and Marketplace Co-op are certain to have a MagicBand that will make your heart jump with joy!

    Holly, you sound pretty experienced in the MagicBand department, but I wanted to remind you that once you purchase the MagicBand of your dreams, you should link it to your account, so you're ready to begin your magical journey right away!

    Well, Holly, the countdown to November is on! I hope you have a wonderful time at Walt Disney World!
