    We are taking our grandchildren to DisneyWorld and would like to go directly to the park on day 1. However...the littlest has lost his prior magicband. I can order him a new one with the hotel reservation, but how can we go to the park first?

    Hi Robin!

    Thanks for bringing your question about MagicBands to us here at planDisney! One of my favorite parts of planning for a trip to Walt Disney World is selecting our MagicBands! There are so many options to choose from, and you can customize each band to reflect the character or personality of your party! It's a great way to surprise your family with a planned trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth by way of a wrapped MagicBand box!!

    Robin, congratulations on planning a Multigenerational trip to Walt Disney World! It's a wonderful moment to experience the magic and wonderment of the Disney parks through the eyes of your grandchildren.  I'm glad to see you customized your MagicBands early, but sad that your littlest guest lost his!  No worries! You have several options that you can choose from to replace it. Should you want to replace it with a character band, there are multiple options available on ShopDisney! You can purchase a band outright, and have it shipped to your home.  You can then link it to his profile in your My Disney Experience.  Should it be a little too close to your arrival date, you can head to Guest Services at the theme park of your choice or, depending on when you arrive, you can speak to the concierge at your resort, and inform them that his MagicBand was lost. They may give you an admission card or a colored MagicBand as a replacement.  Bear in mind that replacement MagicBands are not guaranteed, and are given out on a case by case basis. One final option is to purchase a MagicBand for him prior to arriving at the theme parks, either at the shops within the resort, or at Disney Springs. You can then head to Guest Services at the parks to have it linked to his profile. 

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
