    Question re magic bands- if you are staying at a resort you get a complimentary one- can you upgrade to a fancier one from the disney store and pay the difference?

    Hi Cynthia, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question!

    For now, the MagicBands that you'll receive when you check in for your stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel are the solid colour ones, and not the "character" MagicBands that are for sale at various merchandise locations. There is no way to upgrade to a “character” MagicBand as part of your Resort stay at this time. I just logged in to My Disney Experience, and the only options that seem to be available as of right now are the solid colours: yellow, purple, blue, pink, red, orange, grey and green. 

    Even though I love my Inside Out MagicBand, I still personalize my family’s MagicBands prior to each visit to Walt Disney World Resort. "Character" MagicBands can't get personalized with your name underneath the band, although several cool personalized designs are available at various merchandise locations.

    Please don't hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions.

    Have a Magical Day,
