    my husband is a type 1 diabetic we are coming in August to Disney for a week is there any way to put his medical condition on his magic band he would not wear a pin or anything but would have no problem if it was on his armband

    Hi Deborah ~

    At this time, personal information such as medical alerts are not stored on a MagicBand. Even if they did, local emergency medical response personnel from outside Disney World would not have a way to read MagicBands when responding to any medical emergencies on property.

    My son has a medical alert ID band that he wears on his wrist. It looks like a cool sports band and not a medical alert bracelet so he doesn't mind wearing it. There are several companies that make those types of Medical Alert Bands. Perhaps your husband would not mind wearing one of those types of medical alert bands to compliment his MagicBand.
