    Do DVC owners get a magic band when booking with tickets from an authorized seller (not directly from the Disney website)?

    Hi Joseph!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question! Yes, Guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, including Disney Vacation Club Resorts will receive MagicBands included with their stay. If you purchase Disney Theme Park Tickets from an authorized seller, you can simply link your ticket numbers manually in My Disney Experience. I have done this before and it is a pretty easy process. There is a place both in the desktop version or the mobile app to “Link Tickets” and then assign that ticket to a member of your party.

    This spring, Disney announced a new option for MagicBands. In addition to the complimentary solid color bands, you can now choose, for an upgrade fee, a customized band with favorite themes and characters. This offer has been extremely popular, and they have been selling out very quickly. Disney has been restocking them from time to time, so keep checking back if you would like one of these options! I have been checking regularly to order new ones for my upcoming visit. They have even offered a special Disney Vacation Club MagicBand, which is the one I hope to purchase!

    Have fun customizing your MagicBand, Joseph, and let me know what additional questions you have as you plan your visit!

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
