    My wife would like a Magic Band+ with one of the Disney evil characters. Will those be available soon? Also, we have reservations for Port Orleans Riverside. We want to be in the Magnolia Bend section. How and when do we request that? Thanks

    Hiya Richard! Welcome to planDisney!

    Ah, it sounds like your wife and I would get along just fine! From one villain lover to another, I respect the search for the most perfectly frightful MagicBand+! To add a little more villainous fun to your vacation, stop by Tamu Tamu Refreshments at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park to taste test the Scar's Lair Dole Whip! A tart mixture sure to entice all of your most mischievous senses, this is a favorite treat of mine!

    Richard, the new MagicBand+ is quite the special tool, allowing you to utilize the same features you know and love from the last MagicBand model while adding some extra fun into a tiny little space. Watch your MagicBand+ light up in sync to the popular Nighttime Spectaculars and interact with the Fab 50 Character Collection throughout the parks! These models are new, so there are plenty of options to choose from. Since you're staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, the pre-arrival MagicBand options are there for your choosing already! If you don't find a villain-themed one, I did see this Hades MagicBand+ available on shopDisney. MagicBand+ options are also available at different stores around the parks, resorts and Disney Springs, so if you have time to do some searching, you may find what you're looking for.

    As far as requesting a specific section at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, you'll want to call a Cast Member to make sure your preferences are noted on your reservation. While it is not guaranteed, Cast Members will do their best to accommodate your wishes during your stay. You can reach a Cast Member at the Disney Resort Hotel Reservations Line. I suggest having your confirmation number and My Disney Experience Account information ready to make this process smooth and easy!

    I hope this helps answer your questions today, Richard. I know that there are many components to planning the vacation of your dreams at the Walt Disney World Resort, so just know that we're here at planDisney anytime you need us! 

    Have a magical day,
