    Can I purchased a Disney band prior to my visit ?

    Welcome, Roberta! Selecting the “just right” MagicBand is one of my family’s favorite traditions as we prepare for a visit to see Mickey, Minnie, and all of their pals at the Walt Disney World Resort! With a wide variety of MagicBands, covering attractions, characters, movies, and more, there is a MagicBand for everyone!

    Yes, you can certainly purchase your MagicBands before arrival at the Walt Disney World Resort. In fact, I always purchase mine ahead of time! It gives me peace of mind that I’ve already got my bands and I can take a few minutes to easily link them to my My Disney Experience account before we begin traveling. The other benefit to purchasing (and linking) your MagicBands ahead of time is that you can use it to open your Guest room door at your Walt Disney World Resort if you use the online check-in feature on your My Disney Experience app. You can skip the front desk at check-in and simply report to your room!

    Roberta, I usually purchase my bands in advance from There is a great variety of bands available! I have three teenage sons and let them go online to select the bands they like most! It’s just one more way for them to get excited for our upcoming visit! There are also pre-arrival exclusive MagicBands available for Guests staying at hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection. These can be found on your My Disney Experience app.

    In addition to MagicBands, Guests can also opt for a MagicBand+. These bands have added features to make your visit even more entertaining. My favorite feature of MagicBand+ is that it allows you to interact with the "Fab 50" anniversary statues of Disney characters located throughout the four parks!

    Happy planning!
