    If I book a room only reservation, will we still get magic bands? If I purchase tickets at the gate would those be added to my bands? We do have bands from previous trips if I need to use those. Trying to book a last minute trip.

    Hi Kristi!

    Last minute trips to Walt Disney World are the best!  Any time I can add some unplanned magic to my life puts a smile on my face.  

    All Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel will receive complimentary MagicBands, even if it is a room-only reservation.  You are more than welcome to bring and use MagicBands from a previous stay if you'd like.  All MagicBands now are the MagicBand 2, so you'll be getting the new style with your next trip.  

    You can have your tickets linked to your MagicBands if you choose to purchase them at the front gates of the parks.  You can also purchase park tickets at the Concierge desk at your Resort hotel to save you a little time or even purchase tickets online, which will save you the most time, and they'll automatically link to your My Disney Experience account as well as your MagicBands.  

    If you are able to purchase your park tickets in advance, you'll also be able to take advantage of making advance FastPass+ selections.  You can choose up to 3 attractions with specific times so you'll have minimal waits for those attractions you pick.

    Have a magical day!
