    Hi! Good afternoon. I have booked a package at DW for my family, I'm staying on-site and just requested my magic bands customization, but I read that Ill need a valid park admission. Would they be shipped, I must print them or how do I get them?

    Hi Isangee! Congratulations on booking your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. Staying at a Disney resort certainly opens up many more magical opportunities for you.

    When staying at a Disney resort you will be able to receive a Magic Band for all members on the reservation. Once you have linked your resort reservation to your My Disney Experience account you can personalize your Magic Band with color and name.

    You do not need a park ticket to receive a Magic Band. However, to reserve the FastPasses you will need to link valid Park tickets to your My Disney Experience account and for resort guests they can do that 60 days ahead of their arrival date. There are several ways to purchase a Disney ticket. First you will need to decide how many days you will need and if you will need the Park Hopper option or the Water Parks. You can order them on line through the Disney website, www.disneyworld.com, or through AAA, or through other reputable off site ticket companies. You can of course wait until you arrive to purchase your tickets to link to your Magic Bands but then you are late in getting your best choices for FastPasses.

    Ordering on line is easy and they can email you a voucher. This will have a number that you simply link to your My Disney Experience account. Bring that voucher with you when you arrive and they will activate it to use during your stay at any of the park's Guest Relations windows. In the meantime it still allows you to reserve those FastPasses. That is the easiest way to purchase your tickets ahead of time but you can also opt for them to be mailed if you do not have access to email and printing.

    Hope this helps answer your question and hope your upcoming vacation is magical!
