DisneyStore.com looking to add graphic MagicBands for purchase

Disney Parks Blog continues to give us some great insight into the future of MagicBands. New details have appeared in the comment section of a recent blog post that state that DisneyStore.com is looking to add some graphic MagicBands for purchase online in the future without needing to be at the Walt Disney World Resort. Currently they allow the purchase of all solid color bands, as well as a limited selection of MagicBandits.

No specific dates were given as to when Disney Store would have graphic MagicBands available.

Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager, answered visitors questions with some intriguing answers.

Question:

Do you know if they are going to offer them on the Disney store web page to purchase them. For those who are collecting them it would be nice to have the option to purchase them prior to trips or in between trips.

Answer:

@Richard – They are looking at options. I know it’s something we’d like to do.

Question:

Will we be able to purchase these online? I am looking at the website now and it seems they are only selling the default colors.

Answer:

@Eric – The online store team is looking at possibly offering some graphic MagicBands online. I don’t have a confirmed date as to when that will happen.

Question:

I would love to get the Cinderella Castle band, but I won’t be back to the parks until May. Can I order one through the Disney Parks Merchandise guest services when they become available?

Answer:

@Kim – At this time, our Merchandise Guest Services team does not have access to sell these retail MagicBands. We may offer select graphic MagicBands on our online store at a future date: http://www.DisneyStore.com/MagicBands

Question:

The question may have already been asked, but is it possible to call and purchase them by phone? Also, my husband found them on Ebay. Of course, they are twice what they would be in the stores there, but if you buy one off Ebay, can it still be linked to your vacation package account?

Answer:

@Penny – Unfortunately, our Merchandise Guest Services team does not have access to sell the retail MagicBands. We may offer select graphic MagicBands on our Disney Parks online store at a future date – http://www.DisneyStore.com/MagicBands

  1. As a direct response to the final comment: “Also, my husband found them on Ebay. Of course, they are twice what they would be in the stores there, but if you buy one off Ebay, can it still be linked to your vacation package account?”

    It is even more so “buyer beware” if you are buying bands off Ebay, as you have absolutely no idea if will be able to be linked correctly or not!

  2. Hi they allow you to get the bands with the link it later option now. With that auction all you have to do is enter the number on the back of the van to your my Disney experience account. That is the way that I sell them

  3. It would be nice if we had the option to upgrade when selecting our bands for resort stays. I have every plain color now and would much prefer to have the option of even paying a little more to pick out something different. If I could pay $10 to upgrade to the castle or a character band instead of receiving another regular band, I would do it.

  4. if I have the plain color magic bands I receive at the resort, can I upgrade at the park to a graphic band when I buy one in a store or is there no way to transfer the info?

    • Yes, you can get a graphic band and link it to your same ticket, but you’ll need to pay full price for graphic band (there is no upgrade price).
