    Hi. My family and I are headed to Disney for the week in 2 months. Will magic bands work to unlock rooms at The Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando Lake Buena Vista in Disney Springs ? The Disney app shows link magic bands but it takes me to nowhere.

    Hello Alexandro!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for bringing your question to us. My fellow panelists and I are always happy to help with all aspects of vacation planning. Your Walt Disney World adventure is just around the corner, so let's talk about using MagicBands during your trip.

    I'm excited to hear about your stay at the Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando - Disney Springs Area. My friend and her family recently enjoyed their time at this resort. Her little ones loved the expansive pool area, and everyone appreciated the complimentary hot breakfast. While your MagicBand won't unlock your resort room here (that feature is exclusive to guests of hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection), I'll share some ways for you to use your MagicBand in the theme parks.

    Once you link your MagicBand to your My Disney Experience mobile app, you can use it to enter the theme parks (just tap your band to the Mickey symbol, scan your finger, and go!), redeem Lightning Lane entries, enter virtual queues, and link Disney PhotoPass images. If it's a MagicBand+, when charged, it will interact with select theme park elements when you're in range. This page has more information about powering up and linking a MagicBand+ to your account.

    I hope this is helpful, Alexandro. You'll be arriving in time to experience some of this summer's exciting new offerings. Be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog and our social media accounts to stay updated on the latest news before your trip. Thanks again for sending your question to us, and we'll see ya real soon!

    Have a magical day,
