    I would like to purchase a magic band. Is a Disney hotel store the easiest option? At which hotel Can I park and purchase a magic band the most easily? Thank you

    Hi, Robyn!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    In addition to being cute fashion accessories, MagicBands are such a handy device to use during your Walt Disney World Resort visit.  Your MagicBand allows you to access lots of information from your My Disney Experience account, including theme park admission and Lightning Lane entry, with just a quick tap of your wrist.  The latest MagicBand model, the MagicBand+, also unlocks some fun interactive games and surprises in the theme parks.  If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you can even use your MagicBand to unlock your room and charge purchases to your resort hotel folio.

    MagicBands are sold in many retail shops throughout Walt Disney World Resort.  If you would prefer to purchase your MagicBand before visiting the theme parks, I'm happy to tell you that you have several options.

    While many resort hotel shops sell MagicBands, other stores often provide a larger selection.  Also, parking at resort hotels is typically reserved for Guests staying at that resort and Guests with dining reservations at one of the resort's restaurants.  While you could certainly use Disney transportation to travel to a resort hotel that you are not a Guest of, I would recommend visiting Disney Springs instead.

    You can access Disney Springs using Disney transportation, or if you wish to drive your own vehicle, you'll find three parking garages for complimentary self-parking.  World of Disney and Disney's Pin Traders are two Disney Springs stores that usually carry a large selection of MagicBands.

    If you would prefer to purchase your MagicBand before traveling to Walt Disney World Resort, this is also possible.  If you have a Disney Resorts Collection stay booked, you can visit the Walt Disney World Resort website and sign into your My Disney Experience account.  Once you're signed in, hover over the My Disney Experience tab at the top-right of your screen, and from the drop-down menu, select "My MagicBands and Cards."  From there you can follow the prompts to order your MagicBands at a discounted rate.

    Even if you don't have a Disney resort hotel reservation booked, you can still purchase a MagicBand before leaving for your vacation.  You'll find a great selection of MagicBands on the shopDisney website.

    Robyn, I hope that this information is helpful.  If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.  Have a magical day!
