    We are traveling to Walt Disney World in June. My question is a two part question. - How do I order Magicbands and more specifically special bands? Thanks in advance!

    Greetings, Sherry.

    Chim chim-in-ey, chim chim-in-ey, chim chim cher-ee, I'm so glad to see you back here at planDisney! I am honored you chose me to answer your question again and would be more than happy to help.

    Don't you just love MagicBands? Just as a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, MagicBands make vacationing at The Most Magical Place on Earth easy to do. They are versatile little devices with a host of convenient uses. You can use them to unlock your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room door, link your Disney PhotoPass photos to your My Disney Experience account, and enter the theme parks and water parks to name a few. You can even use your MagicBand to charge purchases, such as meals at restaurants and souvenirs, to your Disney Resort hotel room during your stay.

    You can order MagicBands ahead of your trip through your My Disney Experience account from a browser. Once you are logged in, hover your cursor over "My Disney Experience" in the top right corner of the screen and click on "My MagicBands and Cards" from the list of options that appear. You should see your upcoming Resort reservation listed with the names of everyone in your party and a countdown of how many days you have left to order. Click on the blue box with the words "Get Started" written on it, then click "Select" under the name of the individual you want to order a MagicBand for. This will take you to a screen with all available options for MagicBands, including the special pre-arrival exclusive designs you are asking about. You may have to click the icon with four blue squares that says "Grid View" to see the full scope of designs.

    When you find the MagicBand of your dreams, click on its picture and enter the name you want written on it. Follow the same steps for every individual on your reservation. If someone does not want a new MagicBand, click "Select" under their name and then "Decline a New MagicBand." Click "Proceed to Checkout" to complete the ordering process. In just a few weeks' time, you'll receive a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious surprise in the mail!

    The best part of ordering your MagicBands this way is they will already be linked to each individual ahead of time, and they're offered at special pre-arrival prices. Just make sure you pay close attention to the deadlines for customizing and ordering MagicBands for your stay so you don't miss out. If you don't see a design that floats your fancy, keep checking back as the options change frequently. Of course, you can always order a MagicBand from shopDisney or purchase one from a merchandise location on property when you arrive. If you go this route, you will have to "step in time" and link the MagicBands yourself. I recently walked another Guest through this process, but it's easy to do.

    Sherry, please stop back by planDisney if further questions arise while planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Enjoy every magical moment making memories with your granddaughters and husband. I hope your jolly holiday is practically perfect in every way!
