    When staying on resort do you get the new style magic band?

    Hey, Katie! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for bringing your question to us. My favorite way to add extra pixie dust to our Walt Disney World vacation is to customize our MagicBands. As soon as I book our Resort stay, I hop online and make super secret plans for each one. Sure, I let each member of my family pick out the color they would like, but Mom is in charge of the personalized names on the back of each MagicBand!  It's become a really fun tradition to pop open the MagicBand box the day of our vacation and discover with what theme I went for our stay. We are sometimes our favorite Disney characters, sometimes our favorite booths from the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. When customizing your MagicBands, maybe give your family a surprise and try this!

    When you do receive your family's MagicBands, they will be the MagicBand 2 version. A fun aspect of this version is that you can swap the center icon to mix and max colors with other bands or even add it to a MagicKeeper accessory. Just remember to keep each person's center icon with them when swapping. 

    Thanks again for stopping by with your MagicBand question today, Katie! Please let us know if you would like more tips for adding extra magic to your resort stay!
