    I was just wondering can you still buy just a magic band and not the magic band+?

    Howdy Mallory!

    I love it when a fellow Texan stops by with a question for us.

    You’ve certainly asked a question close to my heart because MagicBands are my favorite accessory to wear while visiting Walt Disney World Resort. I find the hardest thing to do once my vacation is over is to take my MagicBand off and, thus, begin my post-Disney vacation blues. However, when it comes to Walt Disney World Resort, it’s not a goodbye but more of a “See ya soon, pal!” 

    Mallory, As you know, MagicBand+ is the new generation of MagicBands; however, I’m happy to tell you that I recently returned from visiting the theme parks and saw plenty of MagicBands for purchase. I remember seeing them at the shops at Disney’s Hollywood Studios along Hollywood Boulevard! If you’ve visited the parks recently and already own a MagicBand, you’re also welcome to use your current one. My older MagicBand lasted about three years. 

    I love that with just a tap of your MagicBand, you can enter the theme parks with valid admission, open your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room, and even charge food and merchandise purchases to the payment card on file at your Disney Resort hotel room! And with the MagicBand+, you can do all of that, as well as unlock enchanting interactions throughout the parks, and it has a rechargeable battery! 

    We can’t wait to welcome you to the magic, Mallory! Have an enchanting visit.
