There’s something special about customizing your MagicBands. They always make your trip feel like it’s right around the corner (even when it’s not).
But, I could never justify getting that pretty Cinderella band when I can get a solid colored one for free.
Now I don’t have to because Disney has added Character MagicBands to Walt Disney World Packages.
New Character MagicBands For Walt Disney World Packages
What are MagicBands?
MagicBands are those colorful “bracelets” you see Disney Guests wearing around Walt Disney World Property.
The MagicBand is an essential part of any Disney vacation.
It serves as your Hotel Key, Park Ticket, Fastpass+ selections, Dining Credits and Reservations, PhotoPass photos, and more.
Are MagicBands free when you book a package?
Yes! When you book a Walt Disney World Package, you are entitled to one free MagicBand per person.
The free MagicBand consists of one solid colored MagicBand, which can be personalized with your name on the back.
Once your Package is booked, log into My Disney Experience and choose the color you’d like.
Can I get a character MagicBand instead of the standard solid colored MagicBand?
Guests who purchase a Package now have the option to receive a Character MagicBands at a special discount of $14.99 off the retail cost.
The final cost will vary based on the MagicBand you choose. But, since many character MagicBands are $24.99, this is a great discount.
And if you already planned on getting a new MagicBand while you were in the Parks, you’re not going to find a better deal than this!
Should you choose not to upgrade your MagicBand, the same colorful selection of complimentary MagicBands are still available for no additional cost.
Choosing Character MagicBands
As soon as your Package is booked, log into My Disney Experience, to see your options.
Choose your favorite color or character and Disney will do the rest. Whichever one you choose, Disney will ship it to your home before you leave for your next vacation.
Are you planning a surprise trip? MagicBands are shipped in a plain white box, so only you know what’s inside.
