The final customization for our family trip to Walt Disney World: magic bands! (Missed the rest of our custom Disney fun? Start with OUR SHIRTS.) If you’re staying at any Walt Disney World resort hotel when you visit, you automatically receive a magic band. You wear the band during your stay and it acts as your room key, park ticket, reservation access card, etc.
You are able to customize your bands through Disney by choosing a basic color for your band or upgrading to a selection of licensed Disney bands- but we want to go full customization! Unfortunately, I ordered these so long ago that some of them were before I started blogging and I wasn’t able to find the items on Etsy when I looked. But most are below and you can see them ALL in action in our YOUTUBE videos!
Note: If you see an item you like, give the photo a click! Every photo is linked directly to the shop where you can buy the item (and so much more!) Additionally, all photos included in this post are directly from the Etsy shop. If you’d like to see the items in action and how we styled them, join us on INSTAGRAM!
Mickey and Minnie head cup decals
Before getting to the magic band goodness, I want to share a different fun decal I found. These little Mickey and Minnie head stickers are totally customizable with initials and a bunch of color choices, including glitter! They are made to be used on the refillable mugs that are part of the dining plan (also able to be purchased separately.). They’re adorable and a really smart idea. I know otherwise we’d be getting confused trying to remember whose cup is whose with only a few lid colors available. We each picked a color, I had our initials put on them and- Viola! These are also really cheap so a fun customization option on a budget.
Donald Duck magic band puck holder
Since the new magic band style uses a removable “puck” at the center of the band, and I know Mini won’t wear his band, I got him a puck holder! The shop where I found this has TONS of options but I decided to go with classic Donald Duck. If he loves it, I’ll clip it on his pants. If he hates it, I’ll keep it on the backpack. He’s under two so technically he doesn’t actually need it at all. I just didn’t want to leave him out. Luckily, BDI Products included a carabiner style clip and retractable reel so we are ready to roll with whatever happens!
Donald Duck magic band puck decal
To get the full Donald Duck experience, I also got Mini a Donald Duck head decal for his puck. I know, I know… Let’s just keep moving here.
Beauty and the Beast stained glass magic band decal
DO YOU SEE THIS BEAUTY (and the Beast)?! Clearly, this decal is for MY magic band. I’m in love. Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie as an adult (and can we talk about how amazing the live action version was?) so I was super excited to find this decal inspired by the Beauty and the Beast stained glass art. It’s gorgeous and it looks just as good in person. I’m dying to get it actually on my band!
ariel inspired Mermaid TAIL sparkle magic band decal
This one is for my Ister, the Ariel fan in my life! I believe she got it in a really pretty green color to put on her purple band. You’ve gotta love the Little Mermaid vibes this sparkly decal is giving. I can’t wait to see it all “put together.”
Toy Story Aliens and Claw magic band decal
And one for my brother-in-law! This Toy Story decal features the best part of the movie series- the little green aliens and “The Claaaaaaaw!” I do believe this baby also glows in the dark. Heck, yes.
Glow in the dark mickey head decal
Because everyone should glow! I figured that anyone who wants one can have one. Any extras I will stick on the stroller or something to jazz it up and help us find it in the dark.
There you have it! We’ve reached the end of our customization but it’s just the beginning of our Walt Disney World 2019 journey! Continue on to read about OUR TRIP…
