“MagicBands” are Walt Disney World wristbands that take the place of Disney World hotel rooms keys, park tickets, and–for now–Fastpass+.

In this post, I’m just detailing–memorializing for history??–the ordering and delivery process.
ORDERING AND CUSTOMIZING YOUR DISNEY WORLD MAGICBAND
To order a MagicBand, you have to be in the test. See the link above to see how you find out if you are in.
If you are in, then you can customize your MagicBand on MyDisneyExperience.com once you’ve logged in.
There’s multiple color options you can choose from among–you can pick the same color for everyone in your group, or mix and match. See the image at the top of the page for the colors available.
In addition, you can add text that will show on the inside of the Magic Band–both fun, and handy if your kids (or husband) all want the same color.
The text is limited to nine characters, so I couldn’t put on mine “Dave Shute”–just “Dave Shut.” So I opted for “Dave.” (I hear there’s a movement to convince Disney add more characters, so that my MagicBand could read “Dave, Shut Up.”)

I’ll be using it–and my Fastpass+–in later September: the 20th at the Magic Kingdom, 21st at Hollywood Studios, and 22nd at Epcot.
