    I was trying to purchase the special priced magic bands they offer during band selections, kids picked out which ones they want but the website is having problems for over two weeks now. How can i purchase them so i dont disapoint kids for same special pri

    Hi there, Joanne! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I absolutely love the ability to upgrade my family's MagicBand. I have been able to score some great MagicBands, including my favorite Dole Whip MagicBand, at an amazing price. 

    Joanne, one thing that you will need to know about the MagicBand upgrade option is that all bands for your reservation must be purchased at the same time. Additionally, the inventory is constantly changing in real-time, so what is available one minute may not be available the next. So you will not be able to purchase your family's bands separately as they come available. 

    If you or your little one's heart is set on a particular MagicBand, I would go ahead and purchase it on ShopDisney. Please note that you will not be able to apply the discounted upgrade price. 

    The best strategy that I have found to snag an awesome upgraded MagicBand is to check the site multiple times throughout the day. I seem to have the best luck scoring my family's preferred MagicBands first thing in the morning. 

    I hope that this helped, Joanne. Good luck on your MagicBand purchase, and please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help in your planning adventure. 

    We hope to see ya real soon!
