    We are planning our visit for Nov. I've been told that when we book our hotel that we can get the Magic Bands at a discounted price. Is there a spot in the cart for that or will I be contacted later about them?

    Hi Mary, Welcome to planDisney! Your trip to Walt Disney World Resort will be here before you know it! MagicBands are one of my favorite accessories while at Disney as it offers such a convenience! They can be used to open your resort room door, PhotoPass and most importantly, enter the parks!

    One of the benefits of staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel is being able to pre-order a MagicBand at a discounted price. Mary, I'm thrilled to let you know that MagicBands are available to purchase via the My Disney Experience app. From the mobile app, tap the three horizontal lines at the bottom right of the screen. Next, scroll to the bottom of the screen then under Account tap MagicBands & Cards. Under Learn More, tap Discover More with MagicBand+. Next, scroll to the bottom of the screen, then under Find Your MagicBand+ Style, tap Shop Now. You'll then be directed to the MagicBand+ section of the DisneyStore website

    If you would rather take your time and browse in person once you arrive, MagicBands can be purchased at many merchandise locations within all four theme parks, at Disney Resort hotel merchandise shops, and in many locations in Disney Springs, especially my favorite World of Disney! The bands can be easily linked to your itinerary through your My Disney Experience account after purchase. Once the bands are linked they are ready for immediate use.

    I want you to know that you have several options to access the magic on your upcoming visit! I highly recommend setting up Disney MagicMobile Service via the My Disney Experience app. This service also allows Guests to enter the theme parks (with valid theme park admission and reservations), link Disney PhotoPass images to their Disney accounts, and charge purchases to their Disney Resort hotel. If you'd prefer to have a physical card linked to your account for use during your visit, simply visit a Guest Relations location for assistance.

    I hope this information helps you prepare for an exciting visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Mary! Thank you again for visiting planDisney. We'll see ya real soon!
