    Is it possible to upgrade the magic bands to character ones for our November vacation (staying at Coronado springs) without ordering new ones? Also, one of our girls is under 3... Is it possible to order her a magic band for the trip as well

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Cheryl!

    One of my favorite parts about planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort is customizing MagicBands for my family before our trip. As Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, each member of your reservation party will receive complimentary solid color MagicBands. You will be able to customize each person's band by selecting the color of the MagicBand and by adding their name to the inside of their band. If you would like graphic MagicBands, you will need to purchase those separately, either from the Disney Store website or at the shops located throughout Walt Disney World Resort. You can also choose to customize your solid color MagicBands by adding stickers or other decorations using a sharpie marker, paint pen or nail polish to show some of your Disney Side on them.

    As long as your little princess is listed as a Guest on your hotel reservation, she will receive a MagicBand, just like the big kids. My son is almost 2 years old and he loves having a MagicBand of his own just like his big brother. In fact, he tries to scan it everywhere the rest of our family does!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you prepare for your trip! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
