    Do you have to buy magic bands or is there a ticket/card we can use

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Suzanne!

    Thank you for stopping by with a great question! We are delighted to assist you as you plan a Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Although they are very convenient and make great souvenirs, MagicBands are not mandatory. Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel are welcome to purchase them at special prices ahead of their visit, but they can also request a Key to the World card at Front Desk at their Disney Resort hotel and use this card instead of a MagicBand.

    All visitors can also use the My Disney Experience app to create a Disney MagicMobile pass and add it to their digital wallet to use their mobile device to enter the theme parks and water parks (with valid admission). Guests also have the option to stop by will-call windows at the entrance of all theme parks, any Guest Relations location, or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs to request a ticket card.

    It was a pleasure answering your question, Suzanne! I hope this helps you while planning and that you have a magical Disney vacation!
