Little Girl with Cinderella on Wish

    We are visiting (fromUK) DisneyWorld in August and then doing a 3night cruise on the Wish at the end. Is there anyway to buy the cruise disneyband+ beforehand so we can use in park/hotel? Or do we have to wait and buy a non-cruise themed on at the hotel?

    Hi Amanda, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for asking us a question!

    I really love the fact that DisneyBand+ has finally made its grand debut on the Disney Wish. She’s such a beautiful ship and this really is a great way to enhance the experience. Rather than digging around for your Key to the World Card (which, I fully admit, I’ve misplaced several times while onboard), the fact that the Magic is waiting to be unlocked with a tap of your wrist really does sound like a great innovation to me!

    From what I understand, there’s currently no way to purchase a cruise-specific DisneyBand+ before boarding the ship because those bands are exclusive designs, reserved only for Guests setting sail on a Disney Cruise. That said, if you purchase a DisneyBand+ (also known as MagicBand+) while in the Disney Parks, you can use that band onboard, if you’d like, by linking it to your stateroom for the duration of the voyage. If you’re looking for a design that really does “double duty”, I’d recommend something pirate-themed or a classic Mickey Mouse design. After all, you can never go wrong with the classics!

    I hope my answer helps you plan the perfect land and sea vacation this August. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
