What are MagicBands?
Introduced in 2013, Disney MagicBands have been a huge success at Disney World. Being able to wear your ticket, credit card and room key on your wrist while leaving your wallet in the room is a convenience most don’t pass up.
Who can upgrade to the $10 Designer MagicBands?
For years WDW Resort guests have had the option to get a free MagicBand when staying onsite. And each guest could customize their band by picking choosing a favorite color and having a 9 character name put on the inside of the band.
But Disney changed it up again! Now Disney World Resort Hotel guests and Annual Passholders are able to choose designer MagicBands for a discounted fee of just $10 instead of paying the retail price of $24.99.
The special discounted price is available when choosing your band on the My Disney Experience (MDE) website or app and only for those with an upcoming onsite stay or for Disney World Annual Passholders.
How to choose the special Magicbands?
Guests can choose the designer bands by using the My Disney Experience Website or app.
One the MDE smartphone app all you have to do is click the three lines on the bottom right and scroll down to “profile”. Click on it and then tap on “MagicBands and Card”. If you have MagicBands that need customizing you’ll have a message at the top of that page.
