    I am trying to buy the cheapest Magic Bands I can find. I only saw one for $10. Is there a way to only find bands between $10-$20? Don't want to spend a lot for a one time experience

    Hi Brittany,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! Completely understand that you’re looking for that perfect MagicBand/MagicBand+.

    There are a few different ways to search for MagicBands outside of the Walt Disney World Resort. The first is by looking on shopDisney. If you search “MagicBands”, you’ll be taken to a list of all the options. To the right of that page, you can sort by price to see what's best for you.

    Another option would be to buy one through My Disney Experience, this is only possible if you have an upcoming Disney Resorts Collection hotel stay. If you do, you’d be able to pick from an assortment of MagicBands at various special prices for your vacation! 

    The final option would be to purchase a Band once you get on property at World of Disney or in any of the merchandise locations. There are a lot of different options to check out. Keep in mind that MagicBands are different from MagicBand+. They both do things like allow you to scan into your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room, scan into Lightning Lanes (separate purchase necessary), and use them to make payments within the Parks. MagicBand+ has a few extra features like lighting up with nighttime shows! If you were looking to have a MagicBand just for entry, the prior version will be just fine. 

    Keep in mind that MagicBands/MagicBand+ can be used for your trips in the future. I have some MagicBands that I got years ago and they are still active on my account. For example, I’ve used it in the past when I forgot to bring my wallet with me. So, your purchase could be helpful in the future!

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is useful as you look into MagicBands for your vacation next year. If you have any other planning questions in the meantime, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
