    I would like to upgrade my magic band on line for the $10 fee but every time I go to edit my magic band, it only shows the basic free ones. How do I upgrade ?

    Greetings, Janine!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love how eager you are to plan the details of your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Like you, I was so excited to hear the news that MagicBands can be upgraded for a discounted fee with a Walt Disney World hotel stay compared to buying those same MagicBands directly from the Walt Disney World Resort. I personally have my eye on the Spaceship Earth MagicBand that I really want to wear for my upcoming summer vacation. Unfortunately there has been a huge demand for these upgraded MagicBands and due to their popularity, stock is limited. Currently only solid color MagicBands are able to be selected due to this. I would suggest holding off a little bit to see if stock replenishes before you have to finalize your MagicBand order. In the My Disney Experience app, you can see the date that your MagicBands have to be ordered by so I would just mark your calendar.

    There have been so many other awesome features added to the My Disney Experience app in the last year. I have saved so much time Mobile Ordering food in the parks at select Quick Service Restaurants using this app, and I also love the new feature that allows me to open the door to my Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room RIGHT from the app on my phone! This app also comes in handy during the day so I can modify my FastPass+ selections and check attraction wait times.

    I hope this information was helpful, and please return if you have any other questions about planning your vacation. Have a Fantasmic day!
