Walt Disney World Releases Update on MagicBand Orders and Cancellations Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

With Walt Disney World effectively closed due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that is currently sweeping the country, guests with upcoming or cancelled reservations and vacation packages may be wondering what’s going on with their MagicBand orders. Disney has updated the COVID-19 landing page to include some information regarding MagicBands:

According to Disney, if you have placed an order and received notification that your MagicBands have already been shipped to your home, you will still receive your order. If you have arranged for your upgraded MagicBands to be delivered to you at your Disney Resort hotel for an arrival date between March 20 and March 31, 2020, your order will be automatically cancelled and you will receive a refund of the amount you paid for the MagicBands. While the Walt Disney World theme parks and Resort hotels are temporarily closed, we are not currently accepting new MagicBand orders linked to Walt Disney World Annual Passholders or Disney Resort hotel reservations. Guests with Resort hotel arrival dates after March 31, 2020, should check back later for updates.

Remember, even if you received MagicBands for an upcoming cancelled reservation, you can still use them on any upcoming trips (or wear them around the house during quarantine to fool yourself into thinking you’re in your happy place.)
