    Hi. I would like to purchase magic bands for my family trip in March 2023. We are not staying at a disney resort and will won't know our villa address till 48 hours before we arrive. Can we purchase the bands at the parks or disney springs? Thank you


    Yes, you can purchase MagicBands at both Disney Springs, as well as in the parks and at the resort hotel gift stores. On my last visit a few months ago the stores still carried both MagicBands, and the new MagicBand+ bands.

    From my experience, the new MagicBand+ bands come with a charge, though I would recommend you bring a power source to give them more juice if you plan on using them right away.

    BONUS TIP #1
    Pairing your new MagicBand+ to your account could not be easier. Just make sure you have the My Disney Experience App installed on your smartphone, and you will see it offers some simple steps on how to pair, as well as how to personalize your settings.

    BONUS TIP #2
    While there are some great features to the MagicBand+ that you cannot enjoy with an original version MagicBand, like the Batuu Bounty Hunters quest, most of the key features remain intact. Key less room entry, charging capabilities, ticket media access, they are all still in there!

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
