    Our family is staying in a resort off Disney property. We have day confirmations and tickets. Will we be issued a Magicband for each family member when we arrive at the gate?

    Hello Denny! Welcome to planDisney with a great question. I am so excited to hear that you will be starting your magical vacation in just a few days. The World’s Most Magical Celebration is in full swing and you will be able to enjoy it.

    MagicBands used to be issued on a complimentary basis to all Guests of select Disney Resorts Collection hotels. Unfortunately, they are only available on a pre-arrival order, online at shopDisney, or several retail locations in all Disney Theme Parks and Disney Springs. As an off-site resort guest, complimentary MagicBands are not issued with theme park admission.

    However, you can set up Disney MagicMobile pass for each member of your family. Each pass can be stored in your smartphone digital wallet to access your theme park admission. You can also go to the Will Call window at the Main Entrance to any theme park and receive an admission card for each person in your family. While you are in a theme park you may want to visit some of my favorite retail locations to purchase a MagicBand for each member of your family. I love shopping at the Emporium on Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom my other favorite is ImageWorks located in World Celebration of EPCOT. Any MagicBand that you purchase will need to be linked to your My Disney Experience account. Cast Members are very helpful in getting your new MagicBands linked for your use. While you are looking for a MagicBand, be sure to check out the special merchandise created just for the 50th Anniversary Celebration.

    Enjoy your magical vacation!

    See ya real soon,
