Family planning a trip

    I just booked our one day Disney tickets (staying off site) are magic bands worth it? If so does everyone in our party need one? (My husband, 11 year old, 8 year old, 2 year old, 10 month old, and myself?)

    Hey there, Jessica!
    So happy that you've stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    MagicBands gives families a way to make their time at Walt Disney World a little bit easier. MagicBands aren't necessary for your trip, but they do give you a bit of character around your wrist as you experience Disney.

    If you decide to purchase MagicBands from the shopDisney website or mobile app, there are plenty to Disney characters to choose, as well as, a few solid color MagicBands. Members of your family who are 3 and older will have the capability to use the MagicBand while you are on your Disney vacation. When you stay off property, MagicBands can be used to store your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations, and PhotoPass pictures. 

    If you choose not to purchase a MagicBand for this Disney trip, each of the ticketed guests in your family (you, your husband, your 11-year-old and 8-year-old) will each receive and Admission Card. This card is used just like a MagicBand and will be given to each of you at the first theme during your visit if you have not already received them. 

    Jessica, I hope that you and your family have a magical time at Walt Disney World. Don't forget about purchasing Memory Maker to capture all of the smiles and hugs that will be shared during your Disney adventure!

    Happy planning,
