    Does every member of my party need their own Magic Band id we are all together and under my experience?

    Hi Debra,

    I'm so excited to hear that you're planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, AND that it's coming up really soon! You're going to have so much FUN!

    As the mama of many, I love how easy MagicBands make our trip! Each one of my Mouseketeers have their own theme park tickets and FastPass+ selections right on their wrists and I don't need to worry about holding onto anything! If you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, each registered Guest in your party will receive a complimentary MagicBand, and if you're staying elsewhere and you'd like to have MagicBands, you may purchase them beforehand online or once you arrive at multiple Disney retail locations.

    While MagicBands are awesome, they're definitely not required, and you can get by without them. If you're staying off-site, you'll receive cards when you purchase your theme park tickets, and you'll be able to use those instead. It is important, though, that each member of your party use their own MagicBand or card that is linked to their name either in your My Disney Experience account or in their own. Both MagicBands and cards link back to the information that is stored in those accounts, which is how you'll access your theme park tickets and FastPass+ selections. Those MagicBands or cards will literally be your keys to unlocking all of the magic and fun, so they're really quite important!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Debra, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your visit. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
