    Hey there, Jean!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so glad you stopped by with your question!

    A Walt Disney World Resort vacation sounds like the perfect way to celebrate your daughter's upcoming birthday and I'm sure she would have a magical time! All resort hotel Guests receive complimentary MagicBands with their reservation. You can use your MagicBand to unlock the door of your Disney resort hotel room, enter theme parks and water parks (with valid admission), check in at FastPass+ entrances, and charge food and merchandise purchases to your resort room during your stay. Theme park tickets with or without the Park Hopper option must be purchased in addition to your resort reservation. Once you purchase your tickets, you can link them to your MagicBand for use in the parks.

    Be sure to check out the options that a Magic Your Way vacation package has to offer. You can add tickets and dining to your resort reservation and customize the package to fit your family's needs and budget. I sure hope this helps and please let us know if you have any other questions. Have a magical day and happy planning!
