New Upgrade option to your Disney MagicBands are here.

For all guests staying on a Walt Disney World Resort property, Disney will ship you Disney MagicBands for free. Up until this month, there have been complimentary standard colors like red, yellow, pink, gray, orange, etc.

How to get an Upgraded MagicBand

This month Disney unveiled that you can now upgrade your MagicBand to include a character. Here are some screenshots of how you can order them from the Walt Disney World website when you are logged into your account (with a reserved vacation).

These Disney MagicBands are going very quick, as two days ago when I looked at the designs there were several other designs that are currently out of stock. Not sure if the categories and Disney MagicBands available with change on a daily basis (or maybe they will just have the ones that they have overstocked), or if these are what they will move forward with and just restock as needed.

Is it worth $10?

The upgraded charge is only $10.00, which is an amazing deal, considering the retail value on these normally is $24.99 for each of them on ShopDisney.com.

Hopefully, Disney chooses to re-stock some of the most popular designs really soon, as they are so fun and offer a refresh of the standard colored bands because I was really looking forward to getting my Baymax MagicBand for $10!

    Hi! Maybe I am in the minority, but I am sticking with the plain colors. We are headed to WDW this summer and just last night, I customized our bands. We will only be there 4 days and I just didn’t feel like spending extra money when the plain ones are free. I would rather use that money on a refillable drink mug! I did look at the designs and they had some adorable ones, but didn’t pull the trigger.

      I can totally agree! The traditional bands are good looking as well. We are considering them for our next trip, but only if we can get the ones we want, and as of yesterday, all of the ones we liked were sold out! We’ll see! Enjoy your trip this summer!
