    I have a reservation for November and need a $10 magic band for that trip. The app routes me to the shop Disney site where magic bands are priced at $30+. Can you help me?

    Hi Andrew!

    Welcome back to planDisney! Even though MagicBands are not required, we still love the ease of use, and picking out our MagicBands is part of the fun of the planning! If you have a reservation at a Disney Resort Collection Hotel for November, you are entitled to a pre-purchase discount through the My Disney Experience site. Let’s see if I can help you navigate where to go!

    While I find the My Disney Experience Mobile App to be convenient while in the parks, for looking at wait times, using Mobile Order, or checking showtimes, for some parts of trip planning I think the desktop version is easier to use. I would recommend using the desktop version of My Disney Experience to pre-order your MagicBands.

    Once signed in to your account, choose the My Disney Experience option from the top right side of the Walt Disney World Website. you’ll see a drop-down menu appear and the second option will be My MagicBands and Cards. Select that option and you’ll be taken to the page where you can pre-order your discounted MagicBands! Currently, solid color MagicBands with the pre-purchase discount are listed at $10, and there are quite a few colors to choose from! Do be prepared that you must order a MagicBand for every Guest on the room reservation, as the system does not allow you to order for only part of the party.

    I hope this helps you get your MagicBands ordered, Andrew! Please let me know if you have any additional questions before your visit. And since you’ll be traveling in November, you may want to check out some of the seasonal offerings around the Walt Disney World Resort. In early November the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival will still be in full swing. This is a fan-favorite where you can stroll, sip, and savor your way around World Showcase! If you’ll be visiting in late November, you’ll find holiday decorations going up around the parks and resorts. And don’t forget to check out all the new and exciting things coming for the Golden Anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort! Special nighttime spectaculars, new attractions, and more!

    Happy Planning!
