    We just booked our package for February, 2022 staying at the Art of Animation. Will we get magic bands mailed to us automatically or do we need to purchase them separately?

    Hello there, Amy! Welcome back to planDisney! We appreciate you taking the time to stop back by and allowing us to answer another wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation question!

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is the perfect resort for kids of all ages! Guests will go in-depth into the art and magic of animation found in Disney and Pixar movies during their stay. You can look forward to exploring the landscapes found in classic movies such as Finding Nemo, Cars, The Lion King, and The Little Mermaid. You and your family can also take advantage of the Disney Skyliner when getting to both Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios! 

    MagicBands are an all-in-one way of accessing your plans during your vacation at Walt Disney World Resort! Guests may use these convenient wristbands to do such tasks as unlocking the door to your Disney Resort hotel room, enter the theme parks and water parks, connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account, and charge food and merchandise purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room. MagicBands are not sent to Guests automatically and will need to be purchased prior to your arrival. Guests staying with the Disney Resorts Collection do receive a pre-arrival discount on MagicBands and can choose from a variety of fun designs! 

    If you choose to not use MagicBands during your stay, you can use the Disney MagicMobile Option instead! This all-new feature allows Guests to use their smart device in the exact same way they have traditionally used MagicBands. All you will need to do is create your Disney MagicMobile pass through the My Disney Experience app and upload it to the digital wallet app on your smart devices. From there, you will simply hold your smart device to an access point to unlock the magical features! This is a great way to experience all of the convenience of a MagicBand right from your smart devices! 

    I hope you have a wonderful trip to Walt Disney World Resort next year! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions along the way!
