    How do we purchase Magic Bands available at check in?

    Welcome, Bhreagh! I'm so glad you found planDisney and asked your question!

    Many merchandise locations around the Walt Disney World Resort sell DisneyBands. This usually includes the gift shops at each Disney Resorts Collection Hotel. Once you arrive, find the gift shop at your hotel and you can choose from their selection of DisneyBands and then link them to your My Disney Experience account through the My Disney Experience mobile app. If you are arriving through the Orlando International Airport, each terminal has a Disney Store and there are usually DisneyBands for sale there too in case you want to purchase them before you arrive at the resort.

    If you decide to purchase the latest version of these magical bands, the DisneyBand+, please note that after they have been connected to your My Disney Experience mobile app, they usually need to be charged and an update usually needs to be installed before you can use them. Just factor this into your plans and be sure to charge them each night for the next day. When they aren't charged, you can usually still access features like tapping into the theme parks, redeeming Lightning Lanes, charging items back to your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel room, and opening your hotel room door. But, if you want to enjoy the interactive features, they must be charged. I just love how they interact with some attractions, nighttime spectaculars, and statues around the parks. It's like a party on your very own wrist!

    Bhreagh, if you have any other questions, please reach out to me and I'd be happy to answer them!

    All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them,
