    Hi, I buy my passes at the military base, how do I know which magic bands will be sent to me or do I have to wait to get to the hotel?

    Hi Carla!

    So glad to hear that you have purchased your military tickets! The only ticket purchases that offer free Magicbands are Annual Passholder Tickets.  If you are staying at a Disney Resort, you would receive a MagicBand free of charge as these are used to open the door to your room, to charge to your room account as well as to use dining credits given as part of a Disney Dining Plan. Also, theme park tickets and FastPass+ selections are linked to the MagicBands. You can make your MagicBand selections on your My Disney Experience Account

    If you are staying off-site, the only use you would have for the MagicBand would be for the park tickets and FastPass+ selections. You could purchase a MagicBand online at www.disneystore.com, via the Shop Disney Parks App on your mobile device or at one of the many shops located in the theme parks or Disney Springs. 

    Did you know?: The Walt Disney World Resort has some great offers for military personnel! You can view these discounts by visiting this page: 2017 Military Discounts for Resorts.

    It has been a pleasure assisting you!
    Thanks for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Happy Planning!
