    Can I purchase custom magic bands online and use them in the park even though I am not staying at a Disney hotel/property?

    Hello Elvira! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Whenever we stay on Walt Disney World Resort property, one of our favorite first experiences is when we switch to our new MagicBands upon receiving them at the Front Desk (as a Canadian, they cannot be shipped to our home address).

    I have even browsed the MagicBands on the Disney Store website and contemplated getting a Star Wars or Haunted Mansion themed MagicBand, but cannot justify the purchase when we get new ones each time we stay at Walt Disney World resort.

    MagicBands are still a valuable tool for those staying off property. You can connect your Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPass+ selections and tickets for Theme Parks to a purchased MagicBands using your My Disney Experience Account. However, I can find no link to have personal customization done on purchased MagicBands through the Disney Store website.

    If you wait until you arrive to purchase your MagicBands, there are Retail MagicBand on Demand stations inside the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. beside Space Mountain, D-Tech on Demand boutique in Disney Springs Marketplace, and Star Wars Launch Bay in Disney’s Hollywood Studios Theme Park.  At these locations, you can design and customize your MagicBands with various options on site and they will be created while you wait.

    Have a Magic(Band) Vacation!
