    Can everyone in my family use the same magic band? I have a family of three and was wondering if i needed to purchase three. Would all of us be able to enter the park, and use fast passes with one band? Could all of our tickets be linked to one band?

    Hey, hey Tamika and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Ooh, your Disney vacation is right around the corner. I am so glad asked this question because finding solutions is what Tiggers like me do best. 

    MagicBands are the most enchanted technology ever created by Mickey and the gang. For Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can unlock your room door, charge merchandise and dining to your room portfolio, link your theme park ticket to get into the theme parks and be used at all FastPass+ entrance touchpoints.

    Unfortunately, each Guest 3 years and older must have their own MagicBand with tickets linked to enter the theme parks. Also, separate MagicBands ensure that all Disney FastPass+ selections are linked correctly. It is all controlled through My Disney Experience or the My Disney Experience mobile app. When MagicBands first came out my family made them our Disney vacation souvenir. MagicBands are so popular you can even customize and personalize them with your name, favorite Disney character, or Disney attraction. Check out the MagicBand on Demand locations at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. next to Space Mountain in Magic Kingdom Park and at Star Wars Launch Bay Cargo in Disney's Hollywood Studios. The batteries are rumored to last over 24 months giving you lots of time to use them. 

    If you do not want to use MagicBands you may always use an admission card to enter theme parks and FastPass+ attraction entrances. These are complimentary with every theme park ticket.

    Disney Dad Tip 1: You are visiting during June and it always seems that Hades is turning up the heat a little extra. Currently, bottles of water cost $3.50 (price subject to change). You may bring your own bottles of water or ask for a complimentary cup of water from any counter service location.

    Disney Dad Tip 2: One of the best features of the My Disney Experience mobile app is Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. We used it during Memorial Day weekend and did not have to wait in food lines. It was awesome!

    Tamika, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
