    Is the upgraded Magic band option becoming available today on the mydisneyexperience website?

    Hi Erica!

    MagicBands are one of my favorite additions to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. It's so nice to have access to your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with just the touch of your MagicBand. Plus, it sounds like you will be staying at a Disney Resort hotel, which means you can use your MagicBands to access your hotel room and to make charges to your hotel room folio!

    As a Disney Resort hotel Guest, you will receive complimentary MagicBands with your hotel reservation. This week, the Disney Parks Blog announced that Guests will soon be able to upgrade their complimentary solid color MagicBands and purchase graphic MagicBands for their vacation at a discounted price.  Just like you, I have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation coming up that's just around the corner and I'm hoping to be able to take advantage of this new upgrade program in time for my trip too!

    Currently, the upgrade option has not been made available for Guests who are customizing their MagicBands. The Disney Parks Blog said that it will be available soon, but they haven't given us a specific timeline. The blog post did say that Guests can customize their MagicBands up to 11 days in advance of their trip for their MagicBands to be delivered to their homes and that MagicBands must be customized at least six days in advance for them to be picked up at a Guest's Disney Resort hotel front desk. So as long as you keep those timelines in mind, I recommend that you keep checking for the option to upgrade your MagicBands and provided your MagicBands haven't been shipped, you will be able to upgrade them once the upgrade options are available!

    Sending pixie dust your way in hopes that you can upgrade your MagicBands in time for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Come back to see us if we can help you again as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
