    Do we have to purchase magic bands for everyone? I tried to get one child and one adult, but the app won't let me continue until I select to purchase one for each person in the party.

    Hiya Tracy! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy! I cannot think of a better place to start off the new year than at the Most Magical Place on Earth! I had the same idea a couple of years ago and was able to be on Main Street, U.S.A. first thing in the morning on January 1st! It was a truly memorable day!

    Let's get to your question! When pre-ordering MagicBands for your upcoming visit, you can decide to only purchase them for only a portion of your party. The easiest way to place this order is by logging on to your My Disney Experience account using your web browser and selecting "My MagicBands and Cards". Scroll down to "Your MagicBand Order" and click on "Get Started". Once here, a list of Guests will appear that are confirmed for your upcoming Disney Resorts Hotel reservation. Select the Guest that you want to start with, and follow the prompts to pick out the MagicBand that they want. Repeat these steps for anyone else in your party that wants a band. Then, for the Guests that do not want one, select their name and scroll down until you see the option to "Decline a New MagicBand". Select this option and follow the same steps for the remainder of the party that is declining to purchase a new one. Once everyone has been accounted for, you will be able to place your order for your new MagicBands. 

    Tracy, as I'm sure you already know, MagicBands and the new MagicBand+ provide countless benefits for you to take advantage of during your stay! You'll be able to use them as your Disney Resorts room key, as your park ticket into the theme parks each day, and even as a payment method at various dining and merchandise locations. They've been extremely helpful for me, mostly to cut down on the number of items I need to carry to the parks.

    I hope you have a magical time, Tracy! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
