Gear up for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort ‘race’cation with all-new limited edition retail MagicBands, created for 2020 runDisney Race Weekends! Beginning with the 2020 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend presented by Cigna, the limited-edition graphic bands feature artwork inspired by the runDisneyrace weekend themes, perfect for coordinating with other weekend merchandise available for purchase at each event.

Retailing at $34.99 plus tax, the commemorative MagicBands will be available for pre-arrival purchase via the Products tab in your runDisney Account for participants currently registered for available 2020 runDisney events.

The MagicBand effortlessly links your Walt Disney World Resort vacation choices and plans you make in the My Disney Experience app – from entering our theme parks to redeeming FastPass+ selections, using dining plan credits, linking Disney PhotoPass photos and more!

  • For those asking about magicband purchase. It took me forever to figure it out, but Go to the run Disney website and find your account. It should show the race you registered for. Click on that and it will take you to a list of options. One of those options will be to purchase items( jackets, pins, bundles, magic bands). If still available, you can purchase your items and they should be available when you pick up your bib at the expo (to my understanding). I hope this helps. I agree It was very confusing. Have a great race!

  • I can’t find anything on where or when you pick them up or if they are mailed to your house. It says I have 1 magic band purchased and no other details. Anyone know how this works?

  • Run Disney, these bands are not showing up and have never shown up on the products page. What is the deal? I’ve been checking since the day this blog post was put up.

  • I signed up for the race on May 30, 2019 and there was no magic band offered and the pin bundle for the races was $30 more than it is now. There was no mention of the special magic bands and I just happened to see them when showing someone else about the run Disney webpage. I think that it is bad that you get charged more for something when you get an early access to it and there was no mention at all about the magic bands!!!

  • Still not available to purchase? I logged in just now and still not available. Were they ever available? I, too, checked in July when I first saw this and never saw the MBs. Are they sold out or have they not been released yet? thanks

  • Why and how was not notified earlier, as I have been registered for the half marathon during early registration for being an annual passholder?? Unfortunately I have never received any notification of this item….dissatisfied with how your marketing people target customers.

  • Are the Princess bands officially sold out? I don’t see them available for purchase. 🙁

  • Will you be able to purchase these at the expo?

  • I’m logged in, have gone to the runDisney account and still can’t get this magicband. I’m running the Dopey and would think that, after spending the time and money that I am, I could at the very least get a magicband. Pretty sure all the Dooney purses and running shoes will be gone by the time I get to the expo (non-runners ALWAYS seem to get those).

  • I think you should make and sale 2,000 Princess Race Weekend Magic bands, instead of just 1,000. I know you would sale them all. They are super cute and reading all the comments there are a lot of us who missed out on it that would buy the magic band. I hope you’ll consider making more.

  • Must be sold out since they aren’t showing up in the “buy products” section. So sad…

  • are the princess bands sold out?

  • Were these randomly offered to race participants? The magic band has not shown in products at all since this announcement and it seems others are saying the same thing.

    Very disappointing.

  • Have checked and checked since this announcement, and it has never shown up on my products page, please help, I desperately want the Princess Marathon one!

  • I too would like to know if these bands will be delivered to my home before leaving for Walt Disney World, or if I have to pick them up at the race expo. I’ll arrive at Walt Disney World a few days before the race weekend begins so I’ll need a magic band before the expo. If I can’t get the magic band before I leave home then I’m not interested.

  • I am registered for the Fairy Tale Challenge and do not have the magic band as an option in the Buy Products page. I have been checking my account since the announcement on runDisney IG. Thank you for your help!

  • I am having the same problem as posted above. There is no “Buy Products” tab on my runDisney account page.

  • I don’t see the special edition magic bands on my buy products page. My mom, sister, and I really want to order them, but don’t seem to be able to. Also, will they have our names on them? Thank you!

  • When I go to buy products I get an error messages “oops it looks like you have no products”. Not my daughter and I are registered. Our registrations are in my account and I am logged. What can I do to purchase the Princess band”. Thank you

  • Hi! Will these be available for purchase at the Marathon Weekend Expo or do you have to purchase? Thanks

  • I’m registered and nothing is coming up in my buy products? Please help!

  • Will the bands be sent to us prior to the expo? I planned to go to the parks the day before the expo and so would need it then. Or do you have to pick this up along with the other preorder merchandise?

  • Why is the products tab not showing up in my account to purchase? I see zero products available to purchase.

  • Are there plans for a magic band for the Wine and Dine 2019 weekend? Thanks!

  • Are these available for purchase for those registered for the kids races, I don’t run but my kids do and they are registered for kids races will I be able to purchase these for them.

    • Hi Ashley! The runDisney limited-edition MagicBands are available to anyone registered for one of the weekend events, including Kids Races. Please visit your runDisney Account where you can purchase via the Buy Products tab. Hope this helps!
