    Are the upgraded magic bands that available the same ones on shopdisney? We want to see what we can order before we commit to ordering as our trip isn't for a few more weeks.

    Hi, Angela!

    It's great to hEAR from you again! You must be looking forward to visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the merriest time of the yEAR! The holiday season is my favorite time to visit because of the extra magic that is felt throughout the parks and resort. There's just nothing better than a nightly stroll down Main Street, U.S.A. watching the snow trickle down surrounded by sparkling lights and dazzling decor! I could stay there for hours soaking in the sounds and sights of the season. It won't be long before it's your turn to experience this magical feeling!

    Angela, MagicBands have become an essential component of your stay at the Walt Disney World Resort. It's so fun to pick out the perfect color or design for an upcoming visit since it's something you'll wEAR each day. The upgraded MagicBands are quite popular since introduced in May. I was able to snag a few for my family's visit last month but was not able to secure our top picks. The inventory for the upgraded MagicBands seems to change often, so if you are looking for a particular design, you will find shopDisney to have a more extensive selection of the same options. Since your vacation isn't until the end of November, you have time to check the website for new inventory each day. If you decide to order from shopDisney, you will need to link your bands in your My Disney Experience account to activate your plans.

    Good luck choosing MagicBands for your holiday visit, Angela! We hope you'll keep us in mind if you think of any additional questions. 

    Have a MAGICAL day!
