    I will be coming to Disney World with my family in June and we will not be staying on site. There will be nine of us and I want to know if the Magicbands are beneficial for us? Two children are also in military- any benefits for 10 day stay?

    Hi, Diane! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    To answer your first question, MagicBands will help you be immersed in the magic and makes it much easier to scan at the FastPass+ entrances at certain attractions! When staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you are even able to make room charges to your MagicBand when you add a credit card to your file upon Check-in. This is just one of the many benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. I find MagicBands to be fun to wear and they now come in so many different patterns and designs with your favorite Disney characters

    Now, for your second question, did you know that members of the U.S. Military: Enjoy Specially Priced Theme Park Tickets in 2017? Also, members of the U.S. Military are chosen daily to help with the Flag Retreat at Magic Kingdom Park. In order to increase your chances of being selected, you should arrive at theme park opening, wear something that identifies you as U.S. Military, and it also never hurts to ask!

    I hope this answers your questions and that you have a magical vacation!
