    I have been trying to get a Frozen Elsa Magic band for my 4 Year Old Daughter. Every time it becomes available it says it is out of stock. Is there Certain Days or Times They make New Magic Bands Available? We have 30 Days before we must Pick Our Bands.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Scott!

    When the Disney Parks Blogs announced that upgraded MagicBand options were coming for Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guests, all of us DisNerds were so excited! I really love that we can still choose one of the complimentary classic solid colors, but now have the option to choose from designs featuring characters, park icons, and other fun Disney themes. 

    Having just selected MagicBands for my family’s upcoming visit, I completely understand your predicament. My daughter had her heart set on a particular design, but every time it popped up in our options in My Disney Experience, it was sold out before we could actually get it in our cart. It took some dedication, but we did eventually manage to get it. I’m happy to share my tips, but please keep in mind that availability is limited, and it’s possible you won’t be able to secure the Elsa MagicBand your daughter wants. Having said that: we’re sure going to try!

    Scott, don’t “let it go” – keep logging in to My Disney Experience. My strategy was to log in at all different times of day and night. I didn’t notice a pattern in terms of when new designs or stock “drop,” but I did notice that it seems like there is more availability at times that most Guests are busy doing other things, like Saturday evening and Monday morning.

    If the rest of your party has more flexibility about their MagicBand selection, or you have your eye on designs that aren’t as popular, go ahead and make your selections, customize them with your names, and leave them in your cart. Your selected MagicBands can disappear at any time, so be patient. For our order, my parents wanted complimentary sold colors, and grey wasn’t a really hot item, so we were fine to load our carts with our selections and then wait patiently for my daughter’s desired design to appear. The style I wanted came and went, so I would patiently keep re-adding it or my second choice when I would log in to look for hers. The goal was to be ready to check out the minute we successfully got her band. As soon as I got it, I raced to check out like it was Black Friday! 

    I’m sending you pixie dust that with diligent checking, you’ll secure that Elsa MagicBand. Remember that if you’re getting close to the deadline, you can always select a complimentary band and then purchase an Elsa design either from ShopDisney or from a merchandise location when you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Have so much fun with your preschooler at The Most Magical Place on Earth! Make sure you stop by the Royal Sommerhus to say hello to Anna and Elsa – they are so much fun to talk to, and Elsa might even show your daughter how to conjure up a little ice magic. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
