    I'm attending the D2 Summit and staying at Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs Resort Area with my daughter's cheer team on the commuter package. Do we get magic wrist bands or do we need to purchase separately?

    Hi, Veronica! This is a great question, so I am glad you stopped by to chat with us! It is almost time for The D2 Summit NSPA Championship! I know you are so excited to get this event underway and start cheering for your daughter. We here at the Panel and sending her and her team our best wishes for a great competition! My cousin is cheering in it this year and we are all looking forward to cheering her team on that week.

    Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel are provided with MagicBands to access their guest rooms. These magical little bands can also be used to access Disney Theme Park Tickets and FastPass+ selections that are linked to the same My Disney Experience account as the MagicBand itself. While you will not receive a MagicBand as part of your stay at the Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista Resort, you can still purchase them and link them to your My Disney Experience account. This will allow you to tap your band at the park entrances to connect to your tickets and also at the entrances to the FastPass+ queues.

    MagicBands can be purchased before your trip on shopDisney and the Shop Disney Parks mobile app. I find that a much larger selection can be found in various merchandise locations across Walt Disney World Resort, so you may want to wait until you arrive and let your family pick out their favorites. There are also MagicBand On Demand locations, where you can design every feature of your new MagicBand. Once purchased, you will need to head to the Link page to connect your purchase to your account.

    Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions!
