    We already purchased our tickets and have linked them to the mydisney app. Would it be cheaper to order magic bands online before we go and pick up our tickets at the hotel or just buy the bands at the hotel?

    Hello Erin!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you are having a magical week!

    As long as you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, the magic bands are included in your hotel stay. You can log into My Disney Experience and select the bands for your party and they will be shipped right to you prior to your visit! If you are staying off property, then you can either order online or purchase them at the parks. It’s easy to add them to your reservation to load your park tickets through My Disney Experience as well. You simply add the 12 digit code on the back of the band and choose which member of your party to associate it with.

    I hope this helps and please let me know if you need anything else as you plan your visit!

    See you real soon!
