    I realize I have some time, but what is the trick to pre-ordering magic bands on My Disney Experience. This is harder than winning the lotto!

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Chrissy!

    It sounds like you and I have something in common because I was also really excited when it was announced that guests with Walt Disney World Resort Hotel reservations can upgrade, at a discounted price, from their complimentary solid-colored MagicBands to some fun new options featuring Disney characters and designs! This new upgrade option has been very, very popular with guests and the demand has led to the upgraded MagicBands selling out quite a few times, so I would say that the trick to ordering them is just to be patient and keep checking back for the ones that you're looking for.

    The great news is that, as you mentioned, you've got time! I've been checking out the MagicBand selections pretty much every day since this new option was offered, and I've seen a varying selection of choices including brand new ones that I've never seen before. The selection seems to vary by the day, so I recommend continuing to check back to see what's been added in the weeks leading up to your vacation. All of the MagicBands for your trip will need to be selected and purchased at the same time, so I suggest that everyone you're ordering for comes up with a first choice and a few backup choices for Disney Characters or designs that they'd be happy to have so that you can place an order as soon as some options are available. Remember, your choice only needs to be finalized 11 days before your arrival date in order to have your MagicBands shipped to you!

    Have a magical day, Chrissy!
