    I have my reservations at the Swan Reserve in October along with the park tickets. We’re interested in MagicBands but cannot find any information or any bands for sale online. How can we purchase MagicBands +?

    Hi Margaret,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    How amazing! You’ll be staying at the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve, it’s such a beautiful hotel and has a great location. Unfortunately, guests of this hotel aren’t able to purchase MagicBands through the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Hakuna Matata, here’s another option! You can purchase MagicBands from shopDisney and have them shipped to you before your trip. Once you get them, you’ll just link the MagicBands to your My Disney Experience mobile app. To do this, from the My Disney Experience mobile app home screen, press the three horizontal lines in the lower right-hand corner. Next, select “Tickets and Passes” then “Link Tickets & Passes”. Under the “Ticket or Pass” banner, you will be able to add your ID codes for each of the MagicBands (found on the backside of the oval on the MagicBand).

    If you want a different design, you can also purchase your MagicBands from Disney Springs or any of the Theme Parks once you arrive to the Walt Disney World Resort. You can even personalize your MagicBands! You’d just use the same steps above when linking them to the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    In the meantime, you could also set up Disney MagicMobile Service, which allows you to use MagicBand features with just the tap of your phone. Through your phone’s Apple Wallet or Google Pay, you’ll be able to store your Disney MagicMobile pass so you can tap your phone to enter the Theme Parks, access Lightning Lanes, and connect to Disney PhotoPass. I love this feature because I’ve forgotten my MagicBand in the hotel room multiple times, but I always have my phone with me so there’s always a back-up option!

    Now, MagicBand+ is a completely new system that will launch this year! Once released, this immersive technology will add to the MagicBand experience with lights and vibrations that bring your MagicBand to life across the Walt Disney World Resort property!

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for your vacation in October. If you have any other vacation questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
