    Hi--Am doing a split stay, 4 nights one resort/3 another. We did this in 2014--received two sets of Magic Bands. It ultimately worked out xferring Fastpasses, ADRs, etc, but took a while. Wondering if getting just one set of bands can work or need 2 sets?

    Hey, John and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited for your grand return to the place "where dreams come true." You are not going to believe all the changes that have occured in the last five years.

    Spit stay mean more of everything. More access to restaurants, more themed pools, more exploration of other Resort hotels and their amenities, and more Disney magic. We have a triple split stay coming up in July and wish it would happen tomorrow. The waiting is the hardest part.

    In 2014, MyMagic+ was just rolling out and all the connections needed a little tweaking. Currently, any MagicBand that is linked to your Disney account with an active theme park ticket through My Disney Experience will work for your FastPass+ entrances and theme park admission. You may accept both sets of MagicBands or decline one. When you check in to your second Resort hotel you will need to go to the front desk to make sure your MagicBands will have access to open your room door. We have had no issues using older MagicBands for theme park entrance but have needed to stop at the front desk to make sure they can open the doors. There is also a feature on the My Disney Experience mobile app to help open your Resort hotel door. Super cool.

    Disney Dad Tip: The MagicBand you will receive has a center puck called the "icon." The icon has all the important information in it. We will swap icons from one MagicBand to another to have a multicolored accessory. Give it try. Also, Disney will complimentary transfer your luggage from one Disney Resort hotel to the next.

    John, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
