    We are considering booking through a third party for our hotel. Will we still receive Magic Bands? Also, will we have the ability to purchase the Memory Maker package for our stay?

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

    If you book a room in a hotel that is on the Walt Disney World Resort property through a third party, you will be able to receive Magic Bands. Just make sure your reservation is connected to your My Disney Experience account. Make sure you choose "From a Travel Professional" to be sure the reservation is added. From there, you can go to the MagicBands and Cards section to assign the colors you want. Make sure you have the correct shipping address!

    You can also purchase your Memory Maker! Make sure you purchase it at least three days before you want to start taking photos at Disney World. You'll save a little money! You can learn more about how it works by reading Memory Maker's Frequently Asked Questions. It's one of my favorite Disney services.

    Let me know if I can answer any additional questions as you continue to plan your visit! I'll be right here to help!
