    Where do I buy magic arm bands that link to everything including the pictures in the park... Also my inlaws are in their 70s and this is the first visit for them does that give them anything if the get the pins? THank you in advance

    Hi Sandra ~

    Traveling with someone visiting the Walt Disney World Resort for the first time is always super exciting. I love seeing the magic through their eyes. You can pick up "First Visit" buttons for your in-laws at any Guest Relations location. While there aren't any specific special things that they will get by wearing the buttons, you never know what pixie dust will come their way throughout the day.

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will receive complimentary MagicBands for your trip. If you make your reservations early enough, you will have the option to customize your MagicBands and have them shipped to you. If not, they will be waiting for you when you check-in your resort.

    If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, MagicBands are available for purchase throughout the Walt Disney World Resort at many merchandise locations. You can also order them prior to your trip online at the Disney Store or on the Shop Disney Parks app.

    When you receive your MagicBands, you will need to link them to your My Disney Experience account or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app. Once your MagicBands and theme parks tickets are linked to your My Disney Experience account, you will be able to use them to enter the theme parks and Disney FastPass+ queues. You can also use them to link Disney PhotoPass Service pictures to your My Disney Experience account.

    Guests who are staying off property and have linked their theme park tickets can begin making Disney FastPass+ selections 30 days prior to their trip. Guests staying on property can make FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance.

    Please feel free to visit again with all of your planning questions. We're hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
