    If I buy tickets thru an agent as a Florida resident do I get a ticket or a band at the park??

    Hi, Jerri!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The only time you automatically get MagicBands for a visit to Walt Disney World Resort is when you make a reservation at one of the hotels. If you're just purchasing park tickets, you can buy your own MagicBands for your visit.

    The only time you receive MagicBands without a resort reservation is when your purchase an Annual Pass. (And you don't get those bands until after you activate the pass, not beforehand.)

    I hope that helps clarify your questions! Let me know if I can help with anything else!

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
