    The selection of regular Magic Bands that aren't + on My Experience page has been poor. I'd like to book for all four people in my party, bu with 4 character choices, I'm not finding what I need. Can I book one at a time?

    Hello there, Amanda!

    September is such a fun time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, especially when grim-grinning ghosts come out to socialize. The 2023 dates for seasonal experiences haven't been released yet, but check the Disney Parks Blog over the next couple of months to see if the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party will overlap with your vacation. 

    Unfortunately, it looks like industry-wide supply chain challenges are limiting the availability of certain MagicBand styles. Once you book your Resort stay, you can select your MagicBand up until 10 days prior to your arrival. I spoke with a helpful Cast Member, and they shared that you'll need to purchase your MagicBands all at once if you are purchasing them due to an upcoming Resort stay. If there are options that you like, I'd suggest purchasing those while they are available. If you aren't a fan of the current options, you can check the website for potential restocks in the morning. Alternatively, you could wait to purchase a MagicBand until you get to the Walt Disney World Resort. However, this means that you'll need to spend a bit of time purchasing a MagicBand and linking it to your My Disney Experience account when you first arrive. Did you know that you can access MagicBand features, like theme park entry, through the Disney MagicMobile service in the My Disney Experience app?

    I hope you found these tips helpful, Amanda! Like the Star Wars droid C-3PO, I love helping fellow Walt Disney World Resort guests with technology and vacation plans. Please do come back and ask any other questions you may have

    May the magic be with you!
