    how do i get the wristbands for tickets and my villa?

    Hey Howdy Hey Francine and welcome to planDisney!

    Since the introduction of MagicBands several years ago, this has made navigating the Theme Parks in Walt Disney World Resort so much easier. This is still the preferred way my family and I enjoy touring the parks. It is such a family event to pick out our MagicBands that suit our Disney personalities for our trips and nothing says "Vacation Mode" like putting on your band for a Magical vacation. 

    You have several places where you can purchase your MagicBands, the first place is through your My Disney Experience account. Once you log onto your account, hover over the My Disney Experience logo until you see the drop-down menu. There you should see a heading titled "My MagicBands and Cards", click on that one. There you should see the option to "Get Started" selecting and purchasing the MagicBands for each member of your party. 

    You also have the option to shop elsewhere for your MagicBands like over at ShopDisney. There they also have several varieties of MagicBands to choose from that may be different than the selection on your My Disney Experience account. The hardest part is finding the right one! 

    If you choose to purchase from ShopDisney or anywhere else other than your My Disney Experience site, you will have to link the MagicBands to your account and party members. From the same screen above, "My MagicBands and Cards", if you scroll to the bottom, you should see the blue button "Link" and instructions on how to link the bands to your account and party members. 

    I will forewarn you, on your My Disney Experience site, that you should also see a warning that Disney is dealing with supply chain issues with regard to MagicBands. Some styles may not be as plentiful and inventory may fluctuate. 

    One other option is to purchase your MagicBands once you arrive onsite at your hotel. There are many options at almost all hotel locations throughout Walt Disney World as well as over at World of Disney in Disney Springs and many locations in each theme park to purchase MagicBands. What you can do if you wanted to take advantage of this option, is set up a MagicMobile pass through Disney MagicMobile Service which acts like a MagicBand from your smart device. You can use this to access your room, utilize your theme park tickets and set up charging privileges, that is until you find the right MagicBand!

    So many great options to shop around for your MagicBands and so many really unique designs leave the tough part to you, picking out the right one! Good luck with your search and picking out your MagicBands. I hope your vacation is full of Magical memories! Let us know if you have any further questions, we would be happy to help.

    Have a Magical Day,
