Recently the Walt Disney World Resort let us know that we would soon be able to upgrade our MagicBands for those who stay on-site or are renewing an Annual Pass. Previously, we only had the option to receive a free-or-charge solid colored MagicBand. If we wanted to fancy, Premium MagicBand, we’d have to pay full price for them. Starting today, however, we have the option to purchase these special MagicBands at a reduced price. Keep in mind, this special pricing is only available online ahead of your vacation.
Now, not every MagicBand design is available, however, there are over 50 choices for Guests to now choose from for either free or purchase. The bands will cost around $10, for the Premium options. (That’s a savings of $14.95, which is the cost of the solid color MagicBands.) The regular solid colored bands will still be available at no cost.
These new design options can be shipped to homes (U.S. addresses only) if ordered 11 or more days ahead of arrival.
So, how does the process work? I decided to find out, since I have my Annual Pass MagicBand that I have yet to order.
First, it tells me the basics. That I have a Magic Band I can order and that I can now choose one of the complimentary options or the premium option.
From there, it shows me all the options, starting with the solid color MagicBands, and then moves on to the Premium options.
Say you want to filter your choices. You can do so by Theme. Here you can choose from Mickey and Friends, Disney Princesses, Frozen, Disney Villains, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, Walt Disney Pictures, or the Disney Parks.
You can also choose by Color of MagicBand. Currently, these are the only purple options.
Finally, you can choose Price. It will allow you to only see Premium options or Complimentary options.
Once you choose, you can personalize your MagicBand and it will allow you to then confirm and place your order.
Viola! Shipping to me soon!
Will you be choosing to order a Premium option or will you still choose to go with the Complimentary choices?
