    Hi so I will be going to Disney for four days on Friday I am not staying on property we are staying about 10 minutes down the road. My question is what a magic band really benefit me?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Dean, we thank you for this excellent question!

    MagicBands are convenient devices that have the potential to contain a multitude of information for your Disney vacation. Worn as a wristband and built with RF technology they can be used against a sensor called a ‘touch point’. Theme Park Admission Cards operate in the same manner as MagicBands, and both can be Linked to your Disney Account to foster easier Theme Park touring during your vacation.

    Both MagicBands and Theme Park Admission Cards will allow you to:
    -Enter Disney Theme and Water Parks (with valid admission).
    -Check-In at FastPass+ attractions, shows and Character Greetings.
    -Connect Disney PhotoPass® images to your Disney account.
    -Unlock special, personalized surprises throughout Walt Disney World Resort.

    In addition to all of the above, if staying at a Disney Resort hotel you will also be able to utilize your complimentary MagicBand, or Theme Park Admission Card to:
    -Gain entry into your Disney Resort hotel room.
    -Charge food and merchandise purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room during your hotel stay.

    Ultimately, Dean, how your wish to tour and with which device depends on your personal preferences. If you wish to purchase a MagicBand, you can do so at many Walt Disney World Resort retail outlets.

    Best Disney Wishes and don't forget to finalize your plans with My Disney Experience to optimize your visit.
