    Is it possible to order a plain blue or grey magic band anymore? If so, can I purchase a magic band before I arrive to my resort or can I purchase one once I get to my resort?

    Hi Benjamin! Welcome to planDisney.

    My inner Edna Mode appreciates a person who goes for the classics. My mom is a “Grey MagicBand Forever” kinda gal, while I go for the sparkles and characters every time! No matter your personal style or favorite Disney icon, there’s a MagicBand out there for you, and I love that.

    While the grey and blue MagicBands used to be standard options, things have changed a little in 2021. MagicBands are no longer complimentary to Disney Resorts Collection hotel Guests, but Guests are welcome to purchase MagicBands in advance of their visit. I have a June visit coming up too, and my family members are all eagerly scrutinizing the options and deciding which is their favorite for this vacation. To see the current options, log in to My Disney Experience, and then select “MagicBands & Cards.” You’ll then see the MagicBands waiting to be customized for your resort hotel reservation. Select “Your New MagicBands” and then follow the prompts to shop for yours. When I search, I see a navy blue option available that might be just what you’re looking for, though availability and offerings are subject to change.

    If you don’t see that option, and the others don’t appeal to you, don’t worry! You may also purchase MagicBands in advance from shopDisney; once your MagicBand arrives, you can use the information in the package to link your new MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account. If none of those options work either, you will be able to purchase a MagicBand at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Just stop at a merchandise location to see the selection; a Cast Member can help you link your new MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account.

    Benjamin, have you heard about the new Disney MagicMobile Service? If you can’t find a MagicBand that works for your style preferences, you can rock the latest technology by using your smartphone to unlock many of the same magical experiences your MagicBand does. You can learn more about Disney MagicMobile in this Disney Parks Blog article.

    Your visit is just a few weeks away, and I know you are eagerly counting down the days. As you plan, pack, and dream about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, your friends at planDisney are here if you have any further questions.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
