    Hi! I just read that there will be new options for magic bands offered to AP and Disney resort guests. Is this being offered now? We only have 18 days left to customize our bands! How can we find the expanded magic band options?

    Hello, Leanne! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    As of right now, we just know the option to upgrade MagicBands for Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guests and new and renewing Annual Passholders will be available “soon.” I spoke with a Guest Services Cast Member in the Help Center who said they had not been given a definitive date, but that once the option is available, you should be able to see it in your My Disney Experience mobile app or online. She also said the option will be available for Guests with both new and previously-booked reservations who are within their MagicBand customization window at the time the option becomes available.

    Since you’re still a couple of weeks away from your customization deadline, I would recommend waiting until closer to the end of your window to see if you’ll have this awesome new opportunity to upgrade prior to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. 

    My family and I love collecting limited edition MagicBands on each of our visits to Walt Disney World Resort! My daughter and I like to coordinate our MagicBands with our outfits for each day of our vacation, too. And while you can have multiple MagicBands connected to your My Disney Experience account, it is important to deactivate ones you no longer use (as too many MagicBands can potentially cause technical glitches with benefits like FastPass+ experience or Dining Plan entitlement redemption and features like opening your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room door or using your MagicBand to charge items to your room).

    I hope this option becomes available before your trip, Leanne! Have a wonderful visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, and let us know if there’s anything else we can help with in the meantime.
