    Hello, We made reservations to be at the parks for 5 days and we are staying at a Disney resort. Do we need to order our Magic Bands separately or are they included with the resort?

    Hello Eric! Your October vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort is going to be here before you know it! You’ve picked a great time of the year to visit! Let's talk about your options for experiencing the magic!

    MagicBands are a great way to add convenience to your vacation! And, now, the Walt Disney World Resort offers MagicBand+! In addition to being a great way to show your Disney pride, your MagicBand+ will serve as your room key, allow charging privileges while shopping and dining, capture your Disney Photo Pass memories, and interact with some of the special effects throughout the Disney Parks!

    Bands are no longer complimentary with a Walt Disney World Resort vacation package. Guests must purchase their own MagicBands or MagicBand+. The best place to find bands is on You will find a wide variety of band options including some of your favorite characters, movies, and attractions! My current favorites are the Princess and the Frog and Fantasmic! bands!

    If you prefer to not use a band, you can always use your own smart device! Here you can easily access Disney MagicMobile on your My Disney Experience app. MagicMobile comes with many of the same features as a MagicBand.

    To use Disney MagicMobile, Guests must link a Walt Disney World Resort vacation reservation number or Disney Parks theme park tickets to their My Disney Experience account. After you’ve linked your reservation or theme park tickets, you’ll select the Disney MagicMobile tile from the menu in your My Disney Experience account. You can then customize your Disney MagicMobile pass. Your Disney MagicMobile pass can then be used to access your Walt Disney World Resort resort room, charge purchases, and capture your Disney Photo Pass memories!

    Happy Planning!
