UPDATED: New MagicBand Options Coming for Walt Disney World Hotel Guests

Updated: May 23, 2019

Have you ever booked a Disney World vacation and felt limited in your options of complimentary MagicBands? Well good news. Soon Disney will allow resort guests and new and renewing Annual Passholders to upgrade their free MagicBands to a character one at a very good rate. Guests will be able to choose from 30 different designs and get a $14.99 discount. That means that the cool Captain Marvel MagicBand that would normally cost you $24.99 will only cost you $10.

Guests will still be able to choose one of the complimentary solid colors and personalize the back with their names. If you choose to upgrade to one of these new design options, the MagicBands can be shipped to guests’ homes (U.S. addresses only) if ordered 11 or more days ahead of arrival and can be personalized if done so at least 6 or more days ahead of arrival.

*UPDATED* The new upgrade option to complimentary MagicBands has now gone live on Disney's website. If you have an upcoming stay at Walt Disney World, or haven't claimed your free Annual Passholder MagicBand, you'll now be prompted on several different upgrade options from the standard free, solid-colored MagicBands. You can filter out options based on color, theme or price. Currently, there are currently eight different premium options you can choose from which featuring the following characters: Belle, Captain Marvel, Flynn Rider, Goofy, Mickey, Olaf, Stitch and a special rainbow colored MagicBand in time for Pride Month. When this new upgrade feature was originally posted on Disney's website, there were over 30 different options. However the high demand for this upgrade has dwindled down the options. There is no official word when Disney will expand these options in the future once stock levels improve. Each of these premium MagicBands are normally priced at $24.99, but with this special upgrade it will only cost you $10.00 to purchase and have it delivered to your house before your vacation.
