    When can you start upgrading your magic bands

    Hi Colleen!

    It sounds like you are just as excited about I am about the new option for Disney Resort hotel Guests and Annual Passholders to upgrade their complimentary solid color MagicBands! It's so nice to have access to your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with the touch of your MagicBand and it's going to be great to get a discount on customized graphic MagicBands that you can use during your vacation.

    The Disney Parks Blog announced last week that the upgrade option would be coming soon, but they didn't give us a specific timeline when the upgrade would be available. Just like you, I have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation coming up and I would like to be able to take advantage of this upgrade for our trip. Unfortunately, the option to upgrade your MagicBands isn't available yet, but we have heard that it will be available soon. So I recommend that you keep checking the MagicBands & Cards page of your My Disney Experience account to see if the upgrade option is available.

    All Disney Resort hotel Guests and Annual Passholders whose MagicBands haven't yet shipped will be able to take advantage of this upgrade. Keep in mind that you must customize your order 11 days in advance of your check-in date for them to be shipped to your home and they must be customized at least six days in advance if you will be picking them up at your Disney Resort hotel front desk. So I'll be sending pixie dust your way in hopes that the upgrade option will be available in time for you will be able to take advantage of it for your vacation!

    Be sure to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for news and announcements about MagicBand upgrades and other awesome things you will be able to enjoy during your visit. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
