Disney fans know there is nothing better than receiving your MagicBands in the mail prior to your Walt Disney World trip as they not only serve as your go-to for just about everything you do in the parks but their arrival also marks the coming of a trip of a lifetime! Now, Disney has announced this process is about to become even more fun as the company will be adding a new MagicBand upgrade option with even more wearables to the list of customizable bands, and at a discounted price.
Beginning soon, Disney Resort hotel guests and new and renewing Annual Passholders will be given the option to upgrade, at a discounted price, from a complimentary solid-color Magic Band to one of more than 30 new MagicBand upgrade options featuring everyone’s favorite Disney characters and special designs.
According to Disney, the new MagicBand upgrade options will be available for pre-arrival purchase at a special price that reflects a $14.00 discount off the regular retail cost through the My Disney Experience website. Take a look at the video below for a sneak peek!
For guests who do not want to pay the discounted upgrade, they can still enjoy the complimentary selection of colorful MagicBands, which will continue to be available through this new change.
The new upgrade options can also be shipped to guests’ homes (the U.S. addresses only) if ordered 11 or more days ahead of arrival and can be personalized if done so at least 6 or more days before arrival.
The MagicBand just recently celebrated its fifth anniversary, and the device continues to effortlessly link the Walt Disney World Resort vacation choices and plans guests make in the My Disney Experience app. This includes everything from entering the parks to redeeming FastPass+ selections, using dining plan credits, linking Disney PhotoPass, and more!
Upgraded MagicBands will be sold by Magic Kingdom, Inc. Your credit card will be charged when you place your order. Once personalized, upgraded MagicBands cannot be canceled, returned, refunded, or exchanged, even if the hotel reservation is canceled. Personalization is not available on certain limited edition MagicBands due to space restrictions. Cancellation of Disney Resort hotel reservations will result in MagicBand orders being canceled; if upgraded MagicBands are ordered and have been personalized at the time the reservation is canceled, the MagicBand order will not be cancelable or refundable and the regular, non-discounted retail price of the upgraded personalized MagicBands will be charged. Pricing of upgraded MagicBands may vary. Selection subject to availability
