    We have reservations for the end of April 2019 we wanted to give this as a x-mas present how can I get the Magic Bands early and are there any additional costs? If I buy from the online store and cancel the others do I get money off my original reservation

    Hello Karen, and thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You have found what I consider to be the perfect Christmas gift, a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! I would hope that my name is on Santa’s “Nice List” because I take a size annual pass in theme park tickets.

    When you make a reservation at select Disney Resort Hotels, you will receive complimentary MagicBands. However, these MagicBands do not ship until about 30 days before your arrival date. They are complimentary so if you decline them, there is no change to your room rate or vacation package. There is no limit to the number of active MagicBands you can have on a My Disney Experience account. I have at least a dozen on my account right now. Some of them are the complimentary MagicBands that I receive with each stay and others are special or limited edition MagicBands I have purchased at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can purchase MagicBands online or from the Shop Disney Parks Mobile App now and receive them before Christmas. There are dozens of designs available online, as well as hundreds more that you can customize at select merchandise locations within the Walt Disney World Resort. You can still receive your complimentary MagicBands and personalize them with your name on the inside if you choose to have an extra set for everyone in your travel party. If you need any more help planning your magical vacation, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
