    Can I purchase discounted magicbands prior to my arrival at Disney world?

    Hiya Peter! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with this great question!

    Oh boy! Only a few more days until you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort for a magical vacation! I'm excited about the memories you are bound to make on this epic getaway!

    In order to purchase MagicBands at a pre-arrival price, Guests must be staying at a Disney Resorts Hotel. Unfortunately, even if you are staying in one on this trip, you would have needed to order them at least 6 days before your arrival. With your trip set to start in just a few days, you have missed your chance to purchase a customized MagicBand at a discounted rate.

    Peter, this does not mean you have missed out on your chance to use a MagicBand during your stay. Upon arrival at Walt Disney World, you can purchase a MagicBand at many locations all around the Resort. You can stop at any gift shop in a Disney Resorts Hotel, merchandise locations at the parks, and even at the Orlando International Airport. Once you make a purchase, you can link your MagicBand to your account by logging on to the My Disney Experience App. You'll enter the unique ID Code located on the back of the MagicBand and select the Guest you wish to link it to. 

    MagicBands are the best way to simplify your time at the parks and resorts. If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Hotel, you can use them to make purchases at many dining and shopping locations. You can also use it as your resort room key for easy entry. At the parks, you can use them as your park ticket for entry, and to scan at Lightning Lane entrances when using Disney Genie+.

    Peter, I hope this information helps you during your upcoming visit! 

    See ya real soon!
