    Hi! Can you still get just regular magic bands and not the magic band + ? If so, how do you go about ordering them. Our trip is in about 3 weeks. Will there be enough time to get them before we leave? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Patricia! Welcome to planDisney. I'm happy to answer your question today!

    So I have some good news for you. As long as there is inventory available and you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel during your vacation, you can order the second generation of MagicBands through your My Disney Experience account instead of a MagicBand+. They are usually listed as either a MagicBand or a MagicBand 2. Simply log into your My Disney Experience account, select "My MagicBands and Cards" under the My Disney Experience menu, click the blue "Get Started" button, and follow the prompts. As long as you complete this transaction 11 days or more before your arrival date, your MagicBands should be shipped to your United States mailing address in advance. I usually like to play it safe and order at least 14 days in advance. If you order any later, or there is a delay with your order, your MagicBand will be shipped to the front desk of your hotel to pick up when you arrive.

    While the second generation of MagicBands will not interact with attractions or nighttime spectaculars, they will still open your hotel room door, allow you to charge purchases back to your hotel, tap into the parks, and redeem any Lightning Lanes you have purchased or Virtual Queues in which you may have enrolled. And speaking of Virtual Queues, you are going to want to try to grab a spot for both TRON Lightcycle / Run Presented by Enterprise in Magic Kingdom Park and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT. Both of these phenomenal attractions are available through the Virtual Queue system at the time of writing this answer!

    Patricia, I hope you have a wonderful time at the resort. I'd be happy to answer any other questions you may have in the future!

    Ta ta for now,
