    I have seen people praparing different magic bands for their trip. How ca we do that? Are all the bands activated for the length of the trip or we need to activate them daily. Also, how can I pre order them?

    Hi Damaris,

    I see a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is in your horizon for next November. Awesome! It's a wonderful time of the year, as the Resort starts getting ready for the holiday season. Make time to experience Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. It's really magical!

    MagicBands are the best thing since sliced bread. They hold your Theme Park Tickets, your key to your Disney Resort hotel room, your PhotoPass, and even your wallet, since you charge food and merchandise to your Resort hotel folio, or redeem entitlements from a Disney Dining Plan.

    One of the benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel, is that you will receive a complimentary MagicBand, which you can customize by selecting from popular colors and even inscribe your name or initials. But that's just the beginning. There are many fun bands and accessories that you may purchase in advance of your trip, either from the Disney Store, or the Shop Disney Parks mobile app. You may even design your own once you get to the Theme Parks.

    Once you associate a MagicBand with your My Disney Experience account, they will all be active. You may use any of them at any time. You do have the option to disable or delete any of them, in case one gets lost or no longer works.

    My favorite color? Red. It matches my Lightsaber.
