    We are arriving at Disney World in a few weeks. We bought our tickets through a conference at the Disney Dolphin and Swan Resort. Our tickets are cards that came in the mail, but I was expecting Magic bands. Can we get magic bands when we get there?

    Hi Lori,

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Let me try to help you with your question so you can plan the most magical vacation ever.

    One of the many Disney Resort Hotel Guest Benefits is they can receive complimentary MagicBands. These carry your Theme Park Tickets, your FastPass+ reservations, your pictures and videos captured by the Disney PhotoPass Service photographers, and they most importantly, they are the keys to your room.

    Guests staying at Walt Disney World Swan Hotel and Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel share many of the benefits of the other Disney Resort hotels; however, Guests staying at these sister properties, do not receive MagicBands. You can definitely purchase one onsite, at the Disney Store, or even with the Shop Disney Parks app.

    One last tip: make sure you create your My Disney Experience account and then Link your Reservations and Purchases, including your Theme Park Tickets, and MagicBands. Happy planning!
