    Hi! I am planning a trip to Magic Kingdom next month and a bit overwhelmed! We will be packing it in in just one day! We are not staying at a Disney resort rather driving up from St. Pete. My question is, are we able to get Magic Bands?!

    Hi Ashley! I'm so excited for you...Walt Disney World Resort in less than a month!! Yippee!

    Don't be overwhelmed - you've got this and we are here for you. Please let us know if you have any further questions as you continue planning your day at Magic Kingdom. We love sharing tips and advice based on our experiences!

    You are going to have a great time visiting Magic Kingdom and I love that you are asking about your MagicBands as you are clearly looking to maximize your day! If you haven't done so already, make sure everyone in your traveling party is linked on your Family & Friends List on your My Disney Experience account and be sure to make your FastPass+ selections and dining reservations as soon as you are able.

    Great news! You can get MagicBands! If you wait until you arrive at Magic Kingdom, you can purchase them at merchandise stores such as the Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A. If you would like to have your MagicBands prior to visiting Magic Kingdom, you can purchase them online at Shop Disney Parks.

    Once you have your MagicBands, be sure to link them to your My Disney Experience account. You can do so by selecting MagicBands and Cards and then link each MagicBand.

    I know you are going to have an amazing day! Enjoy the Power of Magic!
