    How to purchase basic magic bands through my reservations

    Hi there, Teresa!

    Welcome to planDisney - we're so glad that you stopped by with your question for our team of panelists. We're always here to help Guests just like you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    MagicBands are typically available for pre-arrival purchase up to 10 days prior to arrival for most Guests. To see if your reservation is eligible for a pre-arrival MagicBand purchase, simply login to your My Disney Experience account online, and click the My MagicBands & Cards link under the My Disney Experience drop-down menu in the upper right corner of your screen. If you see your reservation listed, you should also see a blue Get Started button to begin customizing your order.

    I recently tried to order new pre-arrival MagicBands for an upcoming stay and noticed that there is currently limited availability of styles to pick from due to industry-wide supply-chain challenges. While there may be a pre-arrival exclusive MagicBand available that catches your eye, I can confirm from a recent visit that the selection available for purchase in-person at Walt Disney World is fantastic! If you don't see something you like for a pre-arrival selection, I'd suggest shopping for new MagicBands as soon as you arrive. You can always request and use a Key to the World Card or Disney's new MagicMobile service instead of a MagicBand, so you may want to try those out first and then see what you'd like to do.

    I hope this information is helpful as you continue planning for your upcoming vacation - please let me know if any other questions pop up!
