    Hello, My family and I are planning a trip for next summer to stay at The Yacht Club. We already have non expiration tickets from a previous trip. Will we automatically receive Magic Bands or would we need to purchase them?

    Hi Debra,

    You have a great question about who is eligible to receive complimentary MagicBands.  Currently all Guests who stay at Disney owned hotels receive MagicBands.  You do not have to purchase theme park tickets in order to receive MagicBands.  However if you already have theme park tickets you may link those tickets to your MagicBand in My Disney Experience.  That way you will be able to use your MagicBand to access your room as well as for entering the theme parks.  You can even use your MagicBand to redeem your FastPass+ selections.  Furthermore if you link a credit card you may make purchases using your MagicBand and a pin code that you select.  It really does make vacationing magical!

    If you haven't already created a My Disney Experience account, now would be a great time to do so.  Even if you don't yet have Disney Resort Hotel reservations, having a My Disney Experience account will help get you started with your vacation plans.

    Please stop by again if you have any more questions.  I think you are going to love experiencing all of the new magical features that My Disney Experience and MagicBands have to offer.
