    Welcome Mercy!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and for sending us your great question about MagicBands!

    As a Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guest, you are eligible to receive a complimentary MagicBand. The complimentary MagicBands for Disney Resort hotel Guests come in 8 solid colors. These colors are: pink, green, red, purple, orange, yellow, blue and gray. Character or Retail MagicBands are not a complimentary offer for Disney Resort hotel Guests but you can purchase these special MagicBands online, on the Shop Disney Parks app or at Walt Disney World Resort retail locations and link them to your My Disney Experience account.

    Occasionally, seasonal or special offers include limited-edition MagicBands. Currently, the only Disney Resort hotel Guests which can choose a “character” MagicBand are those who book the Awaken Summer package. This package, which must be booked by July 6, 2016, includes a special “Awaken Summer” MagicBand which features BB8.

    Quick Tip: Don’t forget that you can customize your basic MagicBands with the purchase of MagicBandits and MagicSliders. I love to make my MagicBands “my own” by customizing them with my favorite Disney Characters!

    Mercy, if you have any other questions, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again!

    Wishing You an Unforgettable Vacation,
