One of the things that we are going to miss with all of the recent changes at Disney World is having MagicBands sent to us 3 to 4 weeks before our check-in date. It’s just one of those little things that were always part of the countdown while preparing for our next trip to Disney World. The good news is, you can still get them and we’re going to tell you some of the best places to buy MagicBands while shopping in Disney Springs.
The six places to get MagicBands in Disney Springs are:
- Disney Pin Traders
- World of Disney
- Marketplace Co-Op
- Star Wars Galactic Outpost
- Star Wars Trading Post

What Is The Best Place In Disney Springs To Buy MagicBands?
Being that there are so many places to get MagicBands it’s hard to say which one is best. But I would have to say that either World of Disney or Disney Pin Traders offers the widest selection of MagicBands at Disney Springs.
What Types Of Designs Can You Get On A Magic Band?

How Much Are MagicBands At Disney Springs?
MagicBands at Disney Springs start at $14.99 plus tax. But we’ve seen them go for much more than that depending on how customized you’d like your MagicBand to be. For example, if you’d like to get a MagicBand with your favorite character (Like this one) as you can see it may cost a little bit more.
Can You Use MagicBands In Disney Springs?
Yes, you can use MagicBands at most stores and restaurants in Disney Springs, just like everywhere else on Disney World property. The only place that we are aware of, that you cannot use a MagicBand is at the AMC theater in Disney Springs, so you may want to keep a little cash on hand if you plan on going there.
It’s probably not a bad idea to keep a gift card on hand just in case if you are really concerned about it though.
Is It Worth Buying MagicBands Anyway?
MagicBands have always been an integral part of our trip and we fully intend to keep using them in the future even though they are not being shipped out in advance anymore. They make your trip so much easier by not having to carry a wallet and are almost a must-have at any Disney Theme Park or Water Park in my opinion.
