    What is the discounted price for magic bands. And does the hotel have to be on Disney property.

    Hi there! Thank you for reaching out to planDisney!

    MagicBands are such a useful accessory for a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. You can use them to tap into the parks and keep track of all of your Disney PhotoPass Service photos. Furthermore, if you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you can use them to open up your hotel room door and charge merchandise and food back to your room! And the latest version, MagicBand+, adds even more interactivity. These new bands will interact with the nighttime spectaculars and even select attractions!

    If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you can take advantage of pre-arrival discounted pricing on MagicBands. The discounts can vary, but they are offered at a cheaper price than you'd find on property or online at shopDisney. Plus, they will ship it to your house ahead of time or to your resort. It's very convenient!

    Once you have booked your vacation package, log in to your My Disney Experience account and select "My MagicBands and Cards." From there, you'll click "Get Started" and follow the prompts to select (or decline) a MagicBand for each member of your party.

    Elizabeth, I hope you have a wonderful visit to the resort. If you're traveling before March 31, 2023, the 50th Anniversary Celebration will still be going strong and you can use your MagicBand+ to wave to the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection across the resort for some extra surprises!

    Please reach out again if you have any questions in the future. We are always happy to help!

    Just keep swimming,
