Can I Pre-Purchase Magic Bands for Walt Disney World?

WDW Magic Bands 2

WDW Magic Bands Specials


“I know you can purchase Magic Band even if you are not staying on property what I want to know is can you get them before you arrive or do you have to wait till you get down there to get them?”


You can get your Walt Disney World Resort Magic Bands for FREE as part of any Walt Disney World Magic Your Way vacation package.

If you’d like to purchase something special other than the solid color bands that come with your Magic Your Way Package, or if you are staying off site, you can also purchase your Magic Bands ( and their accessories) in most of The Walt Disney World Resort Park & Resort gift shops, most of the Disney Pin Trading Centers, have someone purchase them for you in advance, or even purchase some of them online from The Disney Store!

After purchasing,  you can go to the Guest Relations Window at the entrance to each park and a cast member can link your park ticket to your Magic Band onsite. If you have already set up all your plans via My Disney Experience (dining reservations and FastPass+ selections) this will also be linked to your newly purchased Magic Band.

On-site guests with a room only reservation and also DVC owners with a room reservation looking to save money may also order their tickets through a wholesaler such as  Undercover Tourists . Once those tickets arrive, you can just add them to your My Disney Experience account and they will be a part of your Magic Band along with your room key and reservations.

Off-site guests will be able to make FassPass+ selections 30 days prior to arrival date (with purchase of Theme Park Admission). After linking your valid theme park admission to your My Disney Experience (MDE) account or through the My Disney Experience app on your smart phone. Off-site guests looking to save some money and purchasing their tickets through a wholesaler such as Undercover Tourists must also link those tickets to your MDE account in order to make FassPass+ selections 30 days prior to arrival date. Magic Bands for off-site guests must be purchased from or at the park/resort shops and then linked to your MDE account.

This can be done through My Disney Experience online, My Disney Experience app on your smart phone or through Guest Relations.

The Walt Disney World Resort Guest Relations for My Disney Experience, Magic Bands and FastPass+ can be reached at: (407) 939-4357 (7:00 AM to 11:00 PM Eastern Time)
