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

    Attending Summit at ESPN in May. Wondering if registered as a commuter (we did purchase additional 3-day hopper pass-staying off-site) would we be receiving a magic band? If not, is it possible to buy them and link them to the passes?

    Hi Cayce!

    Welcome BACK to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Congrats to your performer for heading to Summit in a month, that's no small feat!

    Guests who are attending The Summit, D2 Summit or Dance Summit will receive MagicBands if they are staying in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, either that they booked on their own or through the competitions host organization. MagicBands are included in any Disney Resort Hotel stay, even for those travelers who don't have theme park tickets, as they serve as room keys in addition to so much more.

    I am happy to say that any Walt Disney World Resort guest can absolutely link their Disney theme park tickets to a purchased MagicBand. You can certainly order these fashion forward pieces of wearable technology in advance of your visit, or you can wait until you arrive as special 'theme park exclusive' designs can be found in shops and kiosks all over. There are even a few locations where you customize a design!

    Once you've found the perfect band for this trip, you can link it to your My Disney Experience Account to serve as a holder of your Disney theme park ticket, your FastPass+ reservations and the way to collect your PhotoPass Photos. Be sure to download the My Disney Experience App so you can have access to all of this awesome information on the go!

    Good Luck to your group at Summit, and We'll See You Real Soon, Cayce!
