    Hi, I was wondering when we order a package online and get the magic bands, do we have an option to upgrade to a character one. Or do we have to purchase it separately than link it to my Disney experience?

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shanon!

    There are many great advantages to staying onsite at a Disney Resort Hotel.  As you mentioned, one of them is that MagicBands are included with your stay.  They are simple to customize online and you can select from a variety of colors.  If you would like to purchase other MagicBands, such as those with characters, you will simply link those in your My Disney Experience account.  Such MagicBands are available in the parks as well as on the Shop Disney site.  Enjoy!

    Magically yours in 2018,
