    hey, I have 20 people coming with me. I was seeing do we need to go ahead and order our magic bands?

    Hi Christina, welcome to planDisney!

    Your questions about planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation for your party of 21 are as welcome as can be at planDisney. Ride vehicles that can accommodate your entire group in one ride vehicle include Pirates of the Caribbean and Jungle Cruise in Magic Kingdom Park and Kilimanjaro Safaris in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. Now that's a party!

    Valid admission, a theme park reservation, and a method of entry (MagicBand, MagicBand+, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card) are currently required for theme park entry. As such, MagicBands are not required but are magical accessories that give you hands-free access at park entry, Lightning Lane entrances, and with Disney PhotoPass photographers. 

    If members of your party know they would like to purchase a MagicBand, the advantage of purchasing one now is you can link, pair, and fully charge MagicBand+ designs before your first park day. There's also a nice variety of MagicBand+ designs on shopDisney. If anyone in your party happens to be staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, Christina, you are even eligible for a pre-arrival MagicBand discount. To take advantage of this special offer, make sure your Disney Resort hotel reservation is linked to your My Disney Experience account and scroll down on the MagicBands and Cards page of your account.

    Some members of your party may prefer the ease of using their My Disney Experience mobile app to download a Disney MagicMobile pass as their method of entry. Others may wish to stop by a Walt Disney World park ticket window to obtain an admission card. There are many ways to access the magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and all roads lead to Cinderella Castle.

    My panelist pals and I have a tradition of smiling big for our Pirates of the Caribbean attraction photo each year. Something else to keep in mind, Christina, is that one Memory Maker purchase includes Disney PhotoPass media from up to 25 Family & Friends who share media with you. Disney PhotoPass photos can only be downloaded and viewed without a watermark on one person's My Disney Experience account, so just make sure the Memory Maker entitlement is linked to someone that knows a thing or two about photo sharing. 

    Thanks for making planDisney a pit stop on your planning journey, Christina. Hope to see you again real soon!

    Choose magic,
