    I just booked my Disney vacation but it didn’t say anything about the magic bands. Do we automatically get them sent to us?

    Hi, there!

     Dacia, I'm just thrilled to hear you've booked a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. It's the very best kind! I love to visit in the summer months. It's the perfect time to enjoy your Disney Resort hotel's unique pool and the you-may-get-wet attractions in the theme parks. 

     MagicBands are the perfect accessory for a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Not only are they cute, but they're super functional! MagicBands are no longer provided on a complimentary basis to Guests of the Disney Resorts Collection. However, you are able to purchase them at a discounted pre-order price. You can view your available options and place your order from your My Disney Experience account. If you haven't set up your My Disney Experience account yet, that's your first step! You'll want to be sure that your Disney Resort hotel reservation is linked to your account. Once it is, hover over the My Disney Experience tab on the Walt Disney World Resort homepage. Select "My MagicBands and Cards" from the drop-down menu that appears. There you can select "Get Started" to preview and customize a MagicBand for each member listed on your reservation. You also have the option of declining a MagicBand for each Guest!

     Worried about not having the handy features of a MagicBand if you choose to decline? Don't be! Disney MagicMobile, a brand new service, was just released. This awesome tool in the My Disney Experience mobile app works much like a MagicBand does. I can't wait to try it for our upcoming visit!

     While you're counting down the days to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, take some time to review the Know Before You Go section of the Walt Disney World Resort website. It has lots of important information about the health and safety measures being taken in and out of the theme parks.

     Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Dacia. Please let us know if you have any other questions! We'd love to help you plan a magical stay.
