    We purchased our Disney tickets yesterday online. They said we should receive them by 3/10. we are offsite but want to purchase the magic bands. Do we have to wait until we get the electronic tickets or can we purchase the bands now? We arrive 7/26

    Hi, Tami!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this great question. You can certainly go ahead and purchase your MagicBands before you receive your theme park tickets. Once you receive your MagicBands and theme park tickets, you can then link them to your My Disney Experience account.

    You can purchase MagicBands in advance of your trip in one of two ways. You can visit the Disney Store online or you can use the Shop Disney Parks app. You will be able to choose from many different MagicBands as well as some fun MagicBand accessories!

    I hope this helps answer your question, Tami. Please stop back again and let me know if you have any other questions about your upcoming summer vacation. Wishing you magical memories!
