    Hi! I have a question regarding the new option of ordering upgraded MagicBands as part of a hotel reservation. I was wondering whether I can upgrade a MagicBand and then change it to a different one if a prettier one pops up unexpectedly?

    Hi, Agata! 

    I am so glad you stopped by with your question about your upcoming stay at the Walt Disney World Resort in early 2020! Isn't it fun to see all the new MagicBand options available for upgrade? There are so "Minnie" fun ones to select from, so I understand it's not an easy decision. It's one of my family's favorite parts of the planning process, and we always make sure to include the yEAR in the personalization to help remember each one of our magical stays. 

    Agata, I had the same dilemma you are experiencing with your selection just a couple of weeks ago. I realized the upgraded MagicBands work a little differently than the complimentary ones since there is a nominal fee for upgrading. The upgrade fee will be charged immediately, so there is not a way to change to a different one once you've made your selection and completed the transaction online. I do see your arrival is not until February, so you do have some time to think about your selection. I know the upgraded bands have been quite popular, but it's my understanding the MagicBands will be replenished as quickly as possible. I encourage you to continue to check your My Disney Experience account often to see what is currently available. 

    Thank you again for visiting us hEAR at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Agata. We hope you'll continue to stop by with your planning questions, and good luck selecting the perfect MagicBand! It will unlock all the magical adventures you'll experience during your stay!
