    I am traveling to WDW in one month. I have two questions for the panel. 1. If staying at the Shades of Green, is it worth getting a magicband? Memory Maker purchased 2. Is there any kind of date when Stitch magicbands will be available again?

    Hi ya, Megan!

    I am thrilled to hEAR that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort next month, I am so excited for you! When we have a trip booked we set up a countdown calendar for my kids in our hallway. The first thing they do when they wake up, is change “the days until Disney” number on our countdown!

    First, I would like to thank you and your family for your service. As a military wife myself, I have yet to stay at Shades of Green, but I’ve heard wonderful things about it. When it comes to MagicBands, I absolutely recommend them for any and every visit to the parks! You can use your MagicBand, once linked to your My Disney Experience account, as your Disney Theme Park admission ticket. You will also be able to access your FastPass+ reservations and use it to save any photos taken by Disney PhotoPass! So yes, it will be easy to have Disney PhotoPass Photographers simply tap your MagicBand to transfer any photos you take during your trip. Since you did purchase Memory Maker, I recommend taking as many photos as possible! Between the Magic Shots, the beautiful iconic backgrounds, and of course your family and friends in the photos, your memories will be preserved for years to come. 

    MagicBands are seriously the most handy accessory when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. I have a small collection, so I now find myself matching my MagicBands to my outfits! You can purchase your MagicBands before you arrive online or you can shop for them once you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort

    As far as Experiment 626 MagicBands, I had seen a few in the parks when I was there in December, but I was unable to find any available online. MagicBand designs are always changing and many more continue to be added, it’s so hard to keep track of them all. If you are unable to find Stitch while shopping at Walt Disney World Resort, you can always ask a Cast Member for help. I’ve experienced help many times from Cast Members. They usually will call to another store to see if they have what I am looking for available, if it’s not available in the current store I am shopping at. 

    Thanks again for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Please visit us again if you have more questions as you continue to plan!

    See ya real soon!
