    Question regarding magic bands: We are heading to Disney and DCA this Thursday. Can you prepurchase magic bands somewhere and practice with them in advance, or do you have to purchce them in the park? If so, where in the park?

    Hi, Juli! Welcome to planDisney.

    Thank you for visiting and bringing us your question! While I see that your arrival date has come and gone, I would still love to help you with your question regarding MagicBand+ at the Disneyland Resort.

    MagicBand+ is available for purchase online at the Disney Store. You can also purchase them in person when you arrive at the resort. They are available at most retail locations across the resort, including inside the Theme Parks. If you want to purchase your MagicBand+ before visiting the parks, they are available at the World of Disney store in the Downtown Disney District. This is a destination located right outside the parks that is filled with amazing shopping and dining, no tickets are required!

    You can use your MagicBand+ to do the following:

    • Enter the Theme Parks
    • Check-in at Lightning Lane entrances
    • Link your Disney PhotoPass photos
    Additionally, MagicBand+ will glow with color and haptic vibrations during select nighttime spectaculars, such as World of Color - ONE. And you can use your MagicBand+ to play Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters via the Disneyland App. This interactive game transforms you into a bounty hunter, and your MagicBand+ will help you find the bounty assigned to you.

    I hope this answers your question, Juli. We are always available to help you with your Disney vacation planning inquiries!

    Your Pal,
