WDW to Start Allowing Purchasing of MagicBands Without Linking to a Ticket

MagicBands

Walt Disney World will be allowing the purchase of MagicBands without being linked to an existing ticket starting tomorrow.

Currently MagicBands have to be linked to a My Disney Experience account with valid ticket media at the time of purchase.  Starting on August 19th, MagicBands will be able to be purchased as stand-alone items at the parks, Downtown Disney, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Pop Century Resort and Disney’s Port Orleans Resort. It is expected that more locations will be added later.

Only regular solid color bands will be included within the new policy. The MagicBands with a printed image will continue to be required to be linked to ticket media at the time of purchase.

This change will now make it possible for guests to buy MagicBands to be given as gifts, or for future trips that have not yet been booked. Before you go out and buy huge stockpiles of MagicBands, be aware there is a purchase limit of 5 per SKU.

I am a lifelong fan of everything Disney. My first trip to a a Disney park was to Disneyland as a child in 1970, but didn't make to Walt Disney World until I went with my wife and first child in 1990. A year doesn't go by with out at least one trip to either Disneyland or Walt Disney World. My wife and I are Disney Vacation Club members and also Charter Members of D23.
