    Hi I recently saw basic MagicBands for sale on the site and now I can not find them . Can I still purchase just magicbands not the + option .

    Hiya Brittany! Welcome to planDisney!

    The moment I arrive onsite for any Walt Disney World Resort vacation, my MagicBand or MagicBand+ immediately goes on my wrist! It's the official mark that our trip is underway and I am back in the Most Magical Place on Earth. If you're staying in a Disney Resorts hotel during your stay, you can practically use them for most of your needs. They can open your resort room door, make purchases at many dining and merchandise locations, and for entry into the parks each day. It allows me to carry fewer items around the parks.

    I took a peek at the website and did not see any original MagicBands for sale. At this time, it seems like only MagicBand+ varieties are being sold. However, if you are staying in a Disney Resorts hotel for your next stay, you'll have the option to pre-order MagicBands or MagicBand+ at a discounted rate for your trip. When searching on the bands that are available here, there were a few original MagicBands to choose from. You'll have the option to have them delivered to your home or have them sent to your Disney Resorts hotel for pickup upon arrival.

    Once you arrive onsite, there are many merchandise locations that still have original MagicBands for sale. I specifically noticed them at the shops in the lobby of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. There was not a wide variety of designs to choose from, but they were being sold. We even found a special Orange Bird MagicBand at a kiosk in the World Showcase in EPCOT. My daughter prefers the regular MagicBand since it fits her wrist better.

    If you decide to go for a new MagicBand+, they do have some wonderful features included. They create an interactive experience for Guests as they navigate through the parks. They light up and vibrate many times throughout the day for a variety of different reasons, especially during the nighttime spectaculars.

    Brittany, I hope you have a magical time during your next visit! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
