    if I book a reservation for a Disney hotel through a non-Disney website (pricing is slightly less), do I still get Magic Bands sent to me that I can link to our park passes that will also be purchased online through a third-party site?

    Hi Jill!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm glad to let you know regardless of how your Walt Disney World Resort hotel was booked you'll still receive all the wondEARful benefits of staying on property, including MagicBands!

    The first thing you are going to want to do is create a My Disney Experience account. Once you are logged in, you'll be able to link up your hotel reservation and your ticket confirmation to begin your planning process. Here you'll be able to complete your online check-in, customize your MagicBands, reserve FastPass+ and make Advanced Dining Reservations too! To link your hotel reservation, you'll be asked to enter your confirmation number. When booking on 3rd party websites the confirmation they provide is usually for their internal systems and not Disney's, so you'll want to call the 3rd party customer service for them to provide the Disney confirmation number for you!

    Once everything is linked you'll want to select MagicBands and Cards from the My Disney Experience drop down menu. Here you'll have the option to pick color and nicknames for everyone in your party! Please let us know if you have any other questions in planning your upcoming trip!
