    what do i do when that extra piece on the magic band comes off and the magic band is too shorts to wear?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jay!

    If you are sporting your MagicBand, you must be getting ready to return to the magic.  Or, better yet, maybe you are enjoying the Most Magical Place on Earth RIGHT NOW.  How exciting!

    This very same thing happened to my husband's MagicBand a few years ago on one of our visits.  At first, he decided to wrap the MagicBand around his belt and wore it around his waist.  He also attached it to his backpack at times.  These MagicBand hacks worked, but we still had quite a few days left on our trip. 

    We decided to visit Guest Relations and they were able to replace his MagicBand and connect it to our My Disney Experience account.  It was the basic gray MagicBand, but it still had plenty of pixie dust!  If you are in the parks, visiting Disney Springs or staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, it may be worth stopping by and asking if they could provide a replacement that will fit your wrist if that extra piece broke off.  Replacement MagicBands may be provided on a case-by-case basis and may be subject to a fee.

    I love wearing my "it's a small world" MagicBand.  If you are like me, and you plan your outfits to match your MagicBand, you likely want to flaunt your Disney side on your wrist.  For a collectable MagicBand that reflects your Disney personality, you can purchase a replacement that fits from shopDisney.com before you arrive or find your perfect match in any of the shops located in the parks and resorts.  You never know what unique or exclusive MagicBand you may find during your visit!

    Good luck and pixie dust to you, Jay!  Have fun unlocking all that magic!
