    How do I purchase Magicbands for my upcoming trip that aren't Magicband+?

    Hello there, Joseph!

    “Welcome Home” to planDisney. Hearing my MagicBand make that magical sound at the Walt Disney World Resort theme park entrances makes my heart sing. It truly is my sign that vacation has begun. 

    You have a few options for purchasing MagicBands. First, if you’re staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can purchase MagicBands through your My Disney Experience account up to 10 days prior to arrival. Please note that due to ongoing, industry-wide supply chain challenges, some MagicBands may not be available. Typically, you’ll find the MagicBands listed at the bottom of the page. 

    Alternatively, you can often find MagicBands on shopDisney, all four theme parks, Walt Disney World Resort hotel gift shops, and a number of stores in Disney Springs. My suggestion would be to pick one up at Disney Springs since I always recommend that Guests spend their first day at the Walt Disney World Resort at Disney Springs. It’s so nice to take time getting settled, have a relaxing meal, and pick up matching t-shirts for your family and friends before hitting the theme parks. 

    Once you purchase your MagicBands, you can easily link them to your My Disney Experience app on your mobile device. On the app, press the three horizontal bars in the bottom right corner and select “MagicBands and More.” If you run into any issues, you can always find a Cast Member to ask for assistance. Take a look at this helpful graphic towards the bottom of the website to see the differences between MagicBand+, MagicBand, and Disney MagicMobile Service to see which option is right for you. 

    Like the Little Mermaid, I love talking about gadgets and gizmos a-plenty. Let me know if you need any other recommendations or tips for your vacation. 

    May the magic be with you!
