    Does everyone in my party need a magic band or is it just for the adults?

    Hi Julie,

    I bet you're getting SUPER excited for your vacation to "The Most Magical Place on Earth!" Now, more than ever, is the perfect time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, and you're going to experience so much magic and fun next month! I'm excited FOR you!

    MagicBands come in a variety of styles and colors, but are so much more than a way to express your Disney style. Through the magic of technology, they connect back to your My Disney Experience account, so they're a super easy way to access your theme park tickets and FastPass+ selections, connect Disney PhotoPass photos to your account, open your Disney Resort hotel door, and even charge food, beverage, and retail purchases back to your room. While MagicBands aren't required for anyone, and many of these functions can also be done with a card that you'll receive when you purchase your tickets, they sure do make your Disney days really easy. Gone are the days of digging inside a pocket, wallet, or purse each time you enter a theme park or FastPass+ queue. I, personally, love having my kids use MagicBands so that I don't need to worry about losing their cards. As the mama of five Mouseketeers, it's great knowing that each one can access everything they need right on their wrist! 

    Are you staying at a Disney Resort hotel? If so, then I'm happy to share that each registered Guest in your party will receive a complimentary MagicBand that you can customize ahead of time. There was even some exciting news announced just yesterday that Guests will soon be able to upgrade MagicBand selections to one of dozens of specialty MagicBands! How fun! If you're staying elsewhere, though, Hakuna worries! You'll still be able to purchase MagicBands online or at multiple retail locations all around the Walt Disney World Resort and can easily link them to your account.

    Come back and see us again if we can help with anything else as you're planning your visit, Julie. I hope that you and your crew have a truly magical vacation this summer!
