    headed to WDW in a month. Have tickets, do I bother getting magic bands for each member of our family. We'll all stay together and aren't at a Disney resort. We are going to WDW 3 different days during our trip. Do we bother with the bands or go w/tickets?

    Hi Kodi! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Ah decisions, decisions! The all new MagicBands have become a part of the Walt Disney World Resort experience...they're so convenient and just plain cool. We always stay on property at Walt Disney World Resort so I've amassed a growing collection. I love being able to to just tap my wrist to for my room key, theme park ticket, FastPass+ selections, PhotoPass card and payment account all in one. Of course the classic ticket still works just fine, you just have to "carry" it.

    MagicBands are available for purchase online or at select retail locations at Walt Disney World Resort and other Disney retail locations. And unlike the complementary ones for your resort stay, you'll find a wide variety of colors and character designs to choose from. If you have a small travel party the $12.95 plus tax cost for a specialty MagicBand won't be hefty.

    Alternately, if you have any MagicBands from a previous visit within the last year you can re-use them for your upcoming visit. You just have to make it active in your My Disney Experience account. I have a favorite "jeweled" MagicBand that I've used for my last few trips.

    I hope that helps to answer your question, and I wish you a magical and memorable Disney vacation!
