    I am trying to find the basic Magic Bands for my family, but can only find the Magic Band Plus available on shop disney. Have they been discontinued? Does Disney have a Magic band option for less than $20 ?

    Hi Michele and welcome to planDisney!

    MagicBands are such a great way to add a little extra magic to any Walt Disney World vacation.  They are a convenient way to enter the theme parks, enter Lightning Lane attraction queues, pay for merchandise and Disney dining, and even unlock your Disney Resort hotel room door!  There is no need to dig around in your bag for various cards when you can just tap your wrist!

    It does seem like they are phasing out the older styles of MagicBands, but I do see a few MagicBand 2 designs on shopDisney.  Even at the clearance price, they are over $20.  If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel during your next vacation, you have the option to purchase MagicBands at a special pre-arrival price.  Looking at the available selection, they currently have about 14 older style MagicBands to choose from with a few being only $9.99.  Even though your vacation is in January, you can customize and purchase them now.  To do this, log in to your My Disney Experience account, hover over the "My Disney Experience" tab at the top right and then click on "My MagicBands and Cards".  Pricing and availability is subject to change.  Most stores at Walt Disney World carry all versions of MagicBands, but you most likely won't find them discounted if you purchase them in person.  The last option would be to check out some of the popular marketplace selling apps for people who are selling them.  Just make sure the listing states they are brand new and have not been previously linked.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
