    I was told that we can choose magic bands other than the regular colors for a discounted price. However when I click on premium, there are none. How do I choose them

    Hi Marjorie,

    If you're choosing MagicBand options, that can only mean one're going to the Walt Disney World Resort! SO exciting! Staying at a Disney Resort hotel right in the middle of the magic will be so much fun, and I hope you're counting down the days until all of your Disney dreams come true!

    It was announced in early May that Disney Resort hotel Guests would have the option to upgrade their complimentary MagicBands to premium MagicBands for a small fee, and Disney fans went crazy with excitement. I know I did, and I bet you did, too! Just like you're experiencing, when I logged on, my only options available for my upcoming stay were the solid-colored complimentary ones. I chatted with a Cast Member about this, and she told me that they were so wildly popular that they are out of stock and Disney is currently working hard to restock them. You'll notice that the Disney Parks Blog article announcing the new upgrade option even has an update as of May 24th that the premium bands are out of stock. As long as you customize your MagicBands at least 11 days before your trip, you'll still receive them at your house before your trip, and thankfully, it looks like you still have some time before your visit, so please keep checking! I'm sending some pixie dust that the premium ones will be available again soon! If not, you'll still be able to choose from the complimentary options to enter the theme parks, hop in the FastPass+ queues, link your Disney PhotoPass photos to your account, charge purchases back to your room, and open your Disney Resort hotel room door. MagicBands sure do make everything easy peasy!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Marjorie, and please come see us again if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation later this summer!
