Frequently Asked Questions
With the rare exception of a design being discontinued, I will almost always be restocking. I work directly with a professional printer to ensure my decals are the highest quality available, and I do have a minimum order to meet with my printer. This keeps my prices low, but also means I restock just once or twice a month, more or less depending on sales.
In most cases, a design marked ‘Out of Stock’ will be restocked within 2 weeks, occasionally longer. It is first-come-first-serve when they restock. If your vacation is coming up fast, you may want to select another design. You can also sign up for my newsletter on the front page of my site for notifications of restocks, sales, and other news.
If there are designs you like that are in stock NOW, please purchase them NOW. I can not gurantee that 100% of my design library will all be in stock at the same time. It’s okay to order months in advance, and also okay to place a second order when restocks arrive. I can hold your first order upon request, or ship twice. Standard shipping is just $0.60 for First Class (no tracking), or $2.61 for First class WITH tracking. You can also choose Priority Mail for $5.95.
When staying at a Disney resort, you will receive a complimentary MagicBand for each guest staying in your room(s). Annual Passholders and DVC members also receive a complimentary MagicBand. As of January 2017, the Walt Disney World travel company is now sending the MagicBand 2.0 to all resort guests, Passholders, and DVC members. If you live in the United States, Disney will ship your MagicBands to you roughly 3 weeks prior to your check-in date. If you are traveling from outside of the U.S. you will receive your MagicBands when you arrive and check into your resort. If you have booked your trip less than 3 weeks before your arrival date, you may receive your bands at resort check-in.
ORIGINAL MagicBands are still in circulation and still work. They are still available for purchase in WDW park and resort gift shops, at select Disney Springs gift shops, via the Disney Shop Parks app, and online at the Disney Store. If you have original MagicBands from a previous trip to Disney, you can still use them, as long as you have not deactivated them from you ‘My Disney Experience’ account. The battery life for all MagicBands is estimated at 2 to 3 years.
You can read all about the differences between the original MagicBand and the MagicBand 2.0 in my blog post here:
The MagicBand 2.0 was unveiled by Disney in November of 2016, and resort guests began receiving them in January of 2017. Please check out my blog post here for information about the new MagicBand design.
I worked on a lot of prototype shapes for these new decals; some that covered just the band and didn’t wrap around the center oval, and some that covered the entire band, some cut in a single continuous piece, some cut in 2 pieces. My final design is a 2-piece decal that wraps around the center Icon disc to give the illusion of a one-piece decal, is the same size and shape on both sides, and allows some of the MagicBand color to show around the edges, similar to my original MagicBand decals.
Why not an all-over skin?
There are some other decal companies selling an all-over decal. This option wasn’t working with my decals due to extra layer of laminate that my vinyl has. My illustrated decals are printed on a waterproof outdoor-grade adhesive vinyl with an over-laminate that laminate protects the printed design from fading and scratching, and adds a lot of extra durability and longevity to my decals. My thicker vinyl wasn’t laying well as an all-over decal. I communicated with my followers on Instagram through the entire process, asking them for their thoughts on size, shape, and the possibility of skipping the lamination step of production so the vinyl would apply wall as an all-over decal. The overwhelming majority opinion was to NOT sacrifice quality to make a decal that covers the entire band. Fans also did not want me to stop offering the mix-and-match option, which is why my decals are the same size and shape on each side, instead of having one longer side that covers the small Mickey icon at the end of one strap of the MagicBand.
The center Icon cover decal is optional. Some guests like it, some guests prefer the Mickey Icon disc to be bare. If you like the covers, they are just $0.50 and must be added to your shopping cart separately.
Chances are that you did not fully complete checkout via Paypal to submit payment for your order. When an order is ‘pending payment’ for an extended period of time without receiving communication from Paypal that payment is complete, my shopping cart system automatically cancels the order. Please make sure that you click ‘Process to Paypal’ during checkout, complete the entire checkout process, and return to my website to see an order confirmation page.
You will receive 3 emails during the course of your order processing:
1. An order confirmation email from my website when payment has been received, sent to the email address you enter on ‘My Fantasy Bands’ when placing your order.
2. A payment confirmation email from Paypal (sent to the email address on file with Paypal).
3. A shipment email when order processing is complete and your order is on it’s way, sent to the email address you enter on ‘My Fantasy Bands’ when placing your order.
Please check any SPAM folders or filters if you have not received order confirmation emails. You can also log into your account and check order status.
Many of my featured photos show a beautiful coordinating “Band Bow” that matches my decal designs. These bows are made by Sofia, a Florida native and master bow maker! Sofia’s shop is called Spray on the Glitter Boutique. She accepts custom orders if you don’t see exactly what you want. Keep in mind that every bow is handmade to order, and she gets a lot of orders! Plan ahead, most orders ship within 2 to 3 weeks.
Also check out her Instagram profile for fan photos of her bows in action!
You can find up-to-date information about order processing and shipping on this page.
I accept payments via Paypal ONLY. Paypal is a secure payment processor and online banking institution that will allow you to make purchases using a debit card, credit card, electronic bank transfer, or an existing Paypal account balance. You do not need to be a registered Paypal user to check out using Paypal. Please visit this link below if you do not have a Paypal account:
For your own financial security, I highly recommend becoming a Paypal account holder if you are not already. Whether you would like to make purchases online using your credit card, debit card, or bank account, Paypal keeps all of your financial information safe and secure and HIDDEN from the websites you purchase from. Paypal is a great way to shop online without having to enter your credit or debit card number on every website you shop at.
Paypal also has buyer and seller protection services to protect you from fraudulent purchases, and also can resolve disputes between buyers and sellers. Thousands or more online merchants accept Paypal payments, including many major ‘big box’ shopping sites.
An eCheck is an electronic check, and similar to writing a traditional paper check, requires a few days to funds to clear your bank account. I strongly advise against paying with an eCheck, especially if you are in a hurry to receive your order.
If you choose to pay using an eCheck via Paypal rather than a direct transfer from your Paypal account, bank account, or using a debit or credit card, your order will not show up in my system until the eCheck has cleared. Just like a regular check, it usually takes between 3 and 5 business days for an eCheck to clear. The date on your order will be the date that your payment cleared, not the date that you initiated the order.
What is a MagicBand?
In one word: AWESOME.
In a phrase: AWESOME on your WRIST.
Walt Disney World in Florida is the first set of parks and resorts to try out this amazing piece of technology. All of the items you see in the info-graphic above have been consolidated into one very cool wristband, called a MagicBand. You no longer need to keep track of your resort room key card, Fastpass tickets, park admission tickets, Photopass card, and form of payment. All of that information is stored on your MagicBand, which contains an RF device. Your MagicBand even keeps your Disney Dining Plan information and dining reservations.
Security? No worries! You need a PIN number to make purchases with your MagicBand, and your fingerprint to get into the parks. If you lose your MagicBand, you don’t need to worry about someone stealing your information. Best way NOT to lose your MagicBand are BitBelt security bands.
More information on MagicBands can be found at the Disney website HERE.
Right now the MagicBands are only available in the Florida Walt Disney World resorts and parks, and kids get a similar wrist band on the Disney Cruise Line for the Oceaneer Club.
I believe that Passholders and Disney Vacation Club Members receive new MagicBands annually with the purchase or renewal of their passes.
If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, your vacation package includes complimentary MagicBands in solid colors. You will receive your bands in the mail roughly a month before your arrival date. If you have booked your vacation with less than a month to go, there is often still time for your bands to come in the mail, but you may be asked to pick them up from the check-in desk of your resort when you arrive.
If you are not staying at a resort on Disney property, but would still like to have a Magic Band, you can purchase the wrist bands in most resort and park gift shops, and at Disney Springs (formerly known as Downtown Disney), and online at the disneystore.com. There are also now D-Tech kiosks located in the parks for customized MagicBands produced on-demand. They are like vending machines for MagicBands!
Plain colored MagicBands are $12.95. Bands with a design start at $20, with additional fees for personalized bands. Limited edition designs vary in price.
Please visit the Walt Disney World Resort webpage for more information on MagicBands and booking your Disney vacation.
ALL ‘MY FANTASY BAND’ DECALS ARE THE SAME SIZE AND SHAPE. My decals are sold as half pieces so that you can mix and match! You must add TWO decal halves to your shopping cart to decorate a single MagicBand!
Some decal shops have pre-cut holes in their decal design. I’ve opted not to do this for a few reasons:
- It detracts from the overall design. The personalized MagicBands you can purchase from D-Tech kiosks in the parks apply your name over the side of the MagicBand with holes, and it’s JUST NOT ATTRACTIVE.
- Many of my customers mix-and-match different designs, rather than choosing the same design for both sides of their MagicBand. I’ve designed all of my decals to be the exact same size so that you can apply it to either side of your wrist band. My decals do not cover up the mouse-shaped icon end of the MagicBand.
- While Disney is the ultimate family vacation destination, there are actually far more adults who visit the parks than children. It’s true!
I have been making and selling MagicBand decals longer than any other shop on the web. I have an amazing relationship with my customers and continually post product design polls on Instagram asking their opinion. My customers have told me time and time again that they prefer to keep the mix-and-match option rather than buy decals in pairs.
I’ve created a page devoted entirely to applying your ‘My Fantasy Bands’ decals to both large and small (adult and kid) wristbands! You can find detailed step-by-step instructions with photos right HERE.
Illustrated Designs & Patterns:
My decals are digitally printed in FULL color on white calendared vinyl material using professional eco-solvent inks, and protected from the elements with an abrasive-resistant, UV-blocking laminate that gives them a 3-5 year outdoor life. When applied correctly, they are SUPER DURABLE! The fine luster finish on my decals compliment the material that your theme park wrist bands are made of, and wont cause a glare in the sunlight or when using flash photography.
Glitter & Solids:
Genuine Glitter and solid colored decals are made from a smooth and shiny outdoor-grade adhesive vinyl. This material is a bit thinner than my printed decals, which allows great movement and flexibility with your theme park wrist band. These decals come with a removable translucent transfer tape to help prevent wrinkles or bubbles during application. The glitter and solid vinyl decals are also durable and waterproof.
I recommend my decals for single-application use. This doesn’t mean single-day use, though! My decals are produced using only high quality waterproof vinyl with a permanant outdoor-grade adhesive. When applied correctly to a clean band, your decal will last for 3-5 YEARS of fun in the sun and water. Once you remove your decal, it may stick again, but wont be as durable as your first application.
Over time, the adhesive on your decal will cure and become super-stuck. To make removal of your decal easier, warm it up a bit with a hair dryer on medium to low heat. Any adhesive residue left behind comes off easily with rubbing alcohol, or even an alcohol-based hand sanitizer gel. Soap and water works as well, but may require a bit of scrubbing.
If you are on vacation and rubbing alcohol isn’t handy, use the back of your removed decal to rub off any traces of adhesive left on your wrist band.
I do! MFB decals are printed using only my own original designs that are artistic interpretations of Disney artwork, otherwise known as Fan Art. I do not claim ownership of any Disney characters or other Disney intellectual property that my designs are inspired by.
Guest Artists: I occasionally invite an artist friend to create a unique design for My Fantasy Bands! Guest Artists are profiled on the product page of each design they create.
Please check my shop; if you don’t see it, I don’t have it yet.
I am always brainstorming new designs! I release a few new designs roughly every 4 to 6 weeks. Sign up for my newsletter on the front page of my website to receive emails when new designs are released.
Feel free to send me a message with your design ideas! I’ll take note and consider them for a future release.
