    How can I get the wristband?

    Hiya Alissa!

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! 

    Oh, Alissa, your trip is rapidly approaching and you are looking to get fitted and accessorized with a MagicBand+. Now, I do not know if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel but if you are then you can purchase discounted bands online. Don't delay as you are now in the 10 to 6-day window before arrival. These bands will not get delivered to your home but will now be waiting for you at your Resort's Front Desk. If you are less than 5 days out then the window closes and you will not be able to purchase the discounted bands. 

    If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can purchase a MagicBand+ at various merchandise locations in the Park. On my last trip, I was on the hunt for a particular Jack and Sally MagicBand+ that I wished to buy for a friend and I found bands for sale at almost every gift shop I visited. Each store had a different selection and it was fun exploring. Unfortunately, I could not find exactly what I was in the Parks but I did find it at the Disney Store online! You can explore the Parks and see what you find as well! Just a tip, if you are looking for something themed after a specific ride or character then look in a shop that may have a connection to them. For example, I found a lot of spooky The Nightmare Before Christmas items in Tower Hotel Gifts located at The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™

    Other great shops to visit are in Disney Springs. World of Disney and Disney's Pin Traders are solid shops to visit with a variety of bands to check out. I always have luck finding a lovely band here. Another tip, when linking the MagicBand+ to your My Disney Experience Account make sure that you are linking the correct band to the right person. Once the band is linked it cannot be changed. You can also link more than one band to each person. I have more than one band that I interchange during my trips just because one matches my outfit or mood better that day. They work beautifully to allow me into the Parks and Lightning Lane entrances even if I switch them up midday. 

    I hope this helps and that you find the perfect MagicBand+ for your trip! 

    Happy Planning!
