One of my favorite things Disney invented was the MagicBand. If you don’t know what a MagicBand is, it is an all in one wristband that makes your vacation very convenient. The band is your room key, park ticket, photopass card, fastpass, dining reservation and even your charge card if you are staying in a Disney resort hotel.The MagicBand is something I love to wear, and even accessorize my outfit with when at the parks.
These bands are waterproof, and can be adjusted for adult and kid sizes. Coming in a variety of colors, they are free if you stay in the resort, as they are your room key. But, you can buy ones with different designs. Most of them are open edition, but there a few special edition that you can get at certain parks or during different events! And, at Disney Springs and Tomorrowland in Magic Kingdom, you can make a custom one! Here are a few I’ve loved:

It’s been ten weeks since this blog started, and I cannot believe how fast it went! I want to thank everyone who read this blog and took time to share it. I really appreciated it! This was my semester project, and I loved doing it. Each post was something that I knew most people would enjoy. And, with the semester just about over, I have decided to keep this blog going! It may not be as weekly, but I will still post once new merch is available.
And, with the blog continuing, I have a big announcement to make.
Drum roll, please…
WE’RE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!!!!
If you have read the “about me” page, you will know I did two college programs in merchandise. A special summer alumni program was available this year, and I happened to be accepted for it for merchandise again! So Magical Merchandise with Meghan is going to be at the resort this summer! Be sure to follow the Instagram page here, as I will be posting quite frequently!
Will you be heading to the resort this summer? I’d love to meet with people who read the blog! It’s always great when I hear feedback and meet new friends that share this common interest!
Again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you! And see you all at Walt Disney World real soon!!
Stormtroopers. The Force. Darth Vader. These are things you may encounter this weekend if you’re running in the RunDisney Dark Side Challenge.

With most runners gearing up to run tomorrow, let’s take a look at some of the dark side merchandise they can try to smuggle into their luggage for their trip back to Earth: Continue reading “Running Into Hyperspace at the 2017 RunDisney Star Wars – Dark Side Half Marathon”
I cannot tell you how much of an accessory person I am. Clothes and accessories are what make or break my park visits. I have to be looking cute and representing what I can while I’m out and about. And, to me, purses and handbags are my main staple. They have to serve a purpose as a statement to an outfit and also be functional. There are a few brands and bags I love, and I will share them with you: Continue reading “A Handy Disney Handbag”
