    If I buy my tickets before I buy magic bands do I need a special ticket or how do I link them everything together ?

    Hello Daniel!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    For as long as my family has been frequenting the Walt Disney World Resort these last few years, we have made excellent use of our provided MagicBands.  I'm sure that I would be a little lost if I were expected to return to hard ticket passes.

    When you book a stay at Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you MagicBands will automatically be shipped to the home address you provided when making the reservation, as long as the address in within the U.S. and there is a suitable amount of time for the MagicBands to be shipped. If not, the MagicBands will be waiting for you at Guest Services of your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.

    If you stay off property, you may purchase MagicBands separately through the Disney Store website or at various locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort.  After purchase, your MagicBands may be linked to your My Disney Experience Account for simple on-the-spot access to Theme Park Tickets, FastPass+ Selections, Advanced Dining Reservations, Memory Maker and more.

    Basically, My Disney Experience is the portal through which all of your plans are stored and the MagicBand is an easy-to-access key.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
