    I’m so confused. We have the bracelets for our upcoming Disney World Trip. Then we received cards (like credit cards). If I am correct the bracelets can be used for room entry; but what else can they be used for? Also, what are the cards used for?

    Welcome to planDisney, Geary!

    If you want adventure in the great wide somewhere, then a vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth is certainly the way to go. I bet you're experiencing a mixture of intense excitement ("I'm going to Walt Disney World!!!") and overwhelmedness ("What do I do with all these wristbands and cards?!"). Hakuna Matata, Geary! You've come to the right place. 

    It seems like you've received both MagicBands and some complimentary cards. These basically have the same functions, such as:
    - Unlocking your Disney Resort hotel room door.
    - Allowing you to enter both Theme and Water Parks (with valid admission, of course).
    - Connecting any Disney PhotoPass images to your account.
    - Charging tasty food and memorable merchandise purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room (this is only available during your hotel stay)
    - Check in at Lightning Lane and virtual queue entrances

    The MagicBands are simply more convenient. I love not having to find my wallet and take out my card every time I want to pay for something, enter a park, or open my hotel room. You're going to enjoy using them.

    If you'd like some personal recommendations for your upcoming trip, make sure you watch both nighttime spectaculars, Disney Enchantment and Harmonious. Here's a tip: for a great viewing spot, watch Harmonious from the Italy or Japan pavilions in EPCOT. You're also going to want to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, and Avatar Flight of Passage. Catch the Festival of Fantasy Parade on Main Street, USA, get a photo in front of Cinderella Castle, treat your taste buds at some of the many outdoor kitchens for the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. But above all: in the midst of all of the fun and busyness, schedule time to slow down and enjoy the moment.

    See ya real soon, Geary!
