    Can I purcahse Magic Bands in advance?

    Hiya Edward! 

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with your question! I love technology and all the conveniences that it offers, so I was really excited when they announced that MagicBand+ functionality was coming to the Disneyland Resort! I now have multiple Bands that I'm able to loan out to family members when we visit, but my favorite one will always be the Disney100 Celebration Band.

    Unlike Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Packages, the Disneyland Resort does not offer an option to pre-order a MagicBand+ to be delivered to your house before your vacation. You may, however, purchase a MagicBand+ on shopdisney.com and have it delivered to your home so you can set it up and link it to your ticket before you arrive. The Disneyland Resort only supports MagicBand+ at this time, so make sure you get the right type. MagicBand+ may also be purchased at various locations throughout the Disneyland Resort. If you have some time before entering the Parks, you could always drop by World of Disney in the Downtown Disney District and buy your MagicBand+ there. 

    Be on the lookout for extra Dazzling Interactions with your MagicBand+, and pay attention to it as you exit the Haunted Mansion and during nighttime spectaculars. I find it really easy to just show my Band when entering the Parks, redeeming Lightning Lanes, and linking Disney PhotoPass photos. Now that I've experienced the Parks with it, I can't imagine visiting without one!

    Edward, I hope that this was helpful for you. There are so many cool MagicBand+ designs that there's something for every taste. I wish you a magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth and please return to us if you need anything else. You're always welcome at planDisney! Until next time!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
