Starting today you have an extra option to customize and receive your magicband before your Walt Disney World holiday.
Anyone who books a package deal through Walt Disney World is entitled to a complementary magicband to make your stay easier. For those that might not know these bands when linked to your park ticket and holiday package can be used for everything from food purchase, park entry and even act as a hotel room key.
Up until now you were restricted in that the complementary bands came in a handful of plain colour designs and if you wanted a character or other type of band you would need to purchase when you get to the resort from one of the many shops or else pre-order from shop disney to your home. However from today you can now choose to upgrade to a premium band for the price of $10, this is well below the usual $24.99 asking price for a band with a design.
To choose your design you just log onto your My Disney Experience page and with a linked vacation package click the button to order your bands.
As long as you are at least 11 days from your holiday your order will go through and you can have it shipped directly to your home if you’re from the US otherwise the bands will be available to pick up on check-in to your resort hotel.
