    I wanted to order a magic band that's prearrival exclusive. However, do I need to order it closer to my vacation date? It's like 10 months away. I don't want to buy it and then it not work. And how often do they add new ones that are exclusive

    Hello Hilary! Welcome to planDisney!

    I love MagicBands. They are stylish, waterproof and so handy. They give you access to your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel room, theme park tickets, allow you to add photos taken by Disney’s PhotoPass photographers, and allow you to charge food and merchandise to your room.

    I have several pre-order exclusive MagicBands in my collection. Most of these MagicBands have a limited supply or are only offered for a limited time. I would suggest ordering an exclusive MagicBand as soon as possible. It could be sold out or no longer offered by the time your trip comes around. The batteries in MagicBands have a minimum life of at least 2 years. I have several that I have been using longer than that. So if you order it now, it will still be operational when it’s time for your trip.

    New and exclusive MagicBands are added all the time. Some offerings are seasonal depending on special events scheduled for the Walt Disney World Resort and some can be a part of a collection celebrating the 50th Anniversary. The release of MagicBand+ later this year is sure to bring a collection of other exclusive MagicBands to add to your collection. I recommend keeping your ears tuned in to the Disney Parks Blog for updates and announcements on MagicBand+.

    Have fun making your selection. If you have any more questions, please feel free to come back and visit us here at planDisney.

    See ya real soon,
