    Jodi from MI Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    We will be attending a convention and staying at the Dolphin/Swan resort and I purchased "convention park tickets" Do I have to purchase MagicBands or will they be sent to me or waiting at check in like they do for the other Disney resorts?

    Hi Jodi!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for stopping by with your question about an upcoming visit to Walt Disney World.   All the panelists love to help Guests have the most magical time possible while on a trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Jodi, since you are staying at the Walt Disney World Swan or Walt Disney World Dolphin hotels you will not receive a complimentary MagicBand when you check-in. If you would like to purchase one and link your tickets to it, you can do so before your trip at the Disney Store online,  or once you arrive on Walt Disney World property. You do not need to have a MagicBand for your tickets to work. Each ticket purchased will be enabled with an RFID chip that can be tapped on entrance kiosks, and at Disney FastPass+ queues just as a Guest would tap a MagicBand. The choice is totally up to you.

    Enjoy your convention and please let us know if we can answer any additional questions you might have.

    Have a Magical Day,
