    Why am I inly Seeing magic band +. Where can I purchase Regular magic band or card?

    Hello Gaye Lynn!

    Welcome to planDisney! Ever since MagicBands first appeared in Walt Disney World Resort they have continued to change and be more magical. 

    While the MagicBand+ is now becoming the more predominant band to purchase you can still find the regular MagicBand in the Parks and online. If you are staying onsite at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel you can pre-purchase a MagicBand at a reduced price. I was perusing the selection that I can purchase for my upcoming trip and I found for sale regular MagicBands labeled as "MagicBand 2." Take a look there if you qualify! I have also had success finding regular MagicBands in my Resort gift shop and various shops in Walt Disney World Resort. I especially recommend Disney's Pin Traders in Disney Springs which has a pretty great selection. I just want to let you know that both the MagicBand+ and MagicBand 2 operate in the same manner to allow guests into the Parks, make purchases, and tap into Lightning Lanes. The MagicBand+ has additional features that let it light up and react to the Park environment. It is also rechargeable so it can be used for trips in the future while the regular MagicBand will eventually die. I use both types of MagicBands in the Parks and solely make my decision on aesthetics. Does it look cute? Then buy it. I hope you find something you love! 

    If you would like a simple ticket card then head to any Will Call or ticket booth in the front of any of the theme parks and have one issued to you! You only need to show your ticket confirmation information from your email and your valid photo ID. If you do get cards make sure you label them with a marker or sticker who they are assigned to as it can get confusing if you get some of the same designs. There is no cost for these ticket cards so they are the most affordable option. 

    I hope this helps and if you have any more questions please feel free to let me know!

    Happy Planning!
