    Planning trip to WDW in Dec but 1st time with magic bands. I see that you customize bands on my Disney experience. Do you have to use only those bands or can you get the new ones from Disney store or on property and use those if staying at a resort?

    Hi Amanda, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    If you have never experienced a visit to Walt Disney World Resort using a MagicBand, you are in for a real treat! This wonderful new technology provides guests a convenient and pleasing way to vacation as practically everything you need during your stay, from your Resort hotel room key, Park Tickets, FastPasses, Disney Dining Plan, or even room charging privileges can all be accessed from your wrist with a simple tap of your MagicBand. It truly is Magic!

    Amanda it sounds like you have already logged into your My Disney Experience account, and have linked your Disney Resort hotel reservation to your account, which will then allow you to order a complimentary MagicBand for each guest in your party. As you will see, you are able to customize each guest's MagicBand with their name (or nickname) and choose a specific color. Currently there are eight different colors to choose from: gray, purple, red, orange, yellow, green, blue and pink.

    If you wish you are certainly able to purchase specialty MagicBands with a favorite Disney Character or other special feature from the Disney Store online, or in one of many shops in any of the Theme Parks or at your Disney Resort hotel. All MagicBands linked to your My Disney Experience account will have the same functionality and can be used interchangeably throughout your trip. Another option would be to customize the complimentary MagicBands you receive shortly before your trip with special glitter, bling, or stickers before you leave home.

    Amanda, I hope you enjoy your MagicBand as much as I enjoy mine! Wishing you a Magical upcoming Disney vacation!
