Question Magic Band question

OK guys, last time I was at WDW(2007),magic bands weren’t a thing!

As a Pooh sized lady, I’m worried the band will be too tight for my wrist. Have any of my other Pooh sized pals here had a problem with the bands not fitting comfortably?

Thanks!

The bands are extremely adjustable and come with long straps!
For small wrists, guests can take off the black/gray portion to make it shorter.
For larger wrists, leave the band in tact and adjust as necessary.

Also know that you can have the center part of the band removed and use a necklace version instead. The portion screws out and you can purchase a necklace at your resort or in the parks, and then screw it into the necklace.

Have a great trip!

I've got pretty big wrists myself and they fit me comfortably.

But as toddjodybrent said, you also have the option to take the working portion of the MagicBand (called the 'icon') out of the wrist band and purchase another carry method for it.

DisneyStore.com sells two accessories called MagicKeepers - one is a Mickey-head medallion intended for clipping to a lanyard, and the other is a simple oval with a carabiner attachment that will clip to pretty much anything.
https://www.shopdisney.com/search?query=magickeepers

You may be able to find more styles and types of MagicKeepers at WDW than the two offered at DisneyStore.com.

Thank you. I’d seen info on the lanyard but not the carabiner. That is definitely an option to consider. I can’t stand wearing watches or necklaces, so I’ll have try out the carabiner if the band is annoying.

At the risk of belaboring the obvious, I’ll mention that you could save some money and hassle by buying a carabiner and simply using it to clip your MB to a belt loop or bag.

Unless, of course, like many of us, you can’t resist buying another Disney-exclusive gadget.
