    We are 2 grandparents with 4 grandkids ages 8 to 13. Do we need magic bracelets for all 6 of us or just the one with the MyDisney app?

    Hey there, Linda, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the panel with your question! It’s always a great day when I get to help a fellow Alabamian navigate their Walt Disney World Vacation planning! I also get the chance to talk about one of my favorite Disney World topics: MagicBands!

    Linda, I want to start off by clearly acknowledging you as a nominee for Grandparent of the year! You should teach a class on how to be a grandparent, and I have four perfect students for your class! They need to learn your ways! But I digress.

    In my opinion, MagicBands are a perfect way to access the Theme Parks and your resort entitlements during your Disney vacation. And with the ages of your grandkids, I suggest purchasing a MagicBand for each member of your vacation party. The MagicBands can be linked to each individual Guest in your reservation, even if they do not have their own My Disney Experience app. Not only are MagicBands functional for your vacation, but they also make great keepsakes while giving each Guest the opportunity to showcase their own individual style. 

    If you booked a Disney Vacation Package, you should have access to pre-arrival exclusive MagicBands in your My Disney Experience Account. Although there are currently some MagicBand supply chain challenges, you can still find some really great discounted pre-arrival exclusive options. You can locate the pre-arrival exclusive options in your My Disney Experience Account by logging into your account and scrolling down to your upcoming reservation. On the right side of the screen, you should see the option to ‘Unlock the Magic with MagicBands.’ Click the “Please make your selection” link, and you’ll be on your way to choosing your MagicBand. 

    I hope this helps, Linda! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
