    I have seen Magicbands with pictures of characters on them. Is it possible to upgrade to one of these bands instead of the plain band we will get when we check in?

    Hello Jill!
    MagicBands are a fantastic way to reduce the amount of stuff you need to keep track of when at the Walt Disney World Resort. As you have already noticed, you get to select from the basic colors when you stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. However, there are MANY other bands to chose from and these unique MagicBands can be found in many of the gift shops throughout Walt Disney World. Please note, that while your basic bands are complimentary with your resort stay, the special patterned MagicBands must be purchased.  You will be able to switch everything over to your new MagicBand once it is purchased. I hope this helps with your vacation planning.  If you have more questions, come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel- we love to help!

    See ya real soon!
