    Have an upcoming Disney Vacation planned and am trying to buy my Magic Bands. Does Disney still offer the Magic Band 2 version as an option online for vacation package guests? I am only finding options to purchase the Magic Band+ in my account.

    Hey Howdy Hey Jennifer and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you for stopping by with your question about MagicBand options for your upcoming vacation. With all of the developments in the parks, it does seem that Disney is transitioning away from the older models of MagicBands. There are still a few places you can check which I can recommend. 

    Purchasing your MagicBands from the Walt Disney World website would be my first recommendation. I do hear from time to time the available options will change depending on inventory so I would continue to keep an eye out there. The other place you will want to watch for is over at the Disney Store. I have seen more MagicBand 2 models here in the past which they may get more in soon. 

    If you are OK with waiting on purchasing your MagicBands, you can always check once you are onsite at the Walt Disney World Resort. Not all shops are created equally and have the same inventory so make sure you check the souvenir shop at your resort, Disney Springs and the shops in the theme parks. The World of Disney is the largest shopping location on the property and is located in Disney Springs. This typically will have a wide variety of MagicBands available. You can also check out the big shops like the Emporium in Magic Kingdom or the Creations Shop in EPCOT for MagicBand 2. I have seen some in the parks recently but the supply can vary significantly. 

    When planning to visit the parks to shop for MagicBand 2, you can always set up a Disney MagicMobile Service pass on your smartphone. This is free to do and you can set it up for each member of your party which you manage right from your My Disney Experience app. Once you log in, look for the three horizontal lines on the bottom right. Scroll to the "Account" heading and look for the option to "Set Up MagicMobile Entry". This will be your option to enter the parks until you get your MagicBands. 

    Best of luck as you continue to hunt for these rare bands. If you have any further questions please let us know, we are always happy to help!

    To Infinity and Beyond,
