    If I’m going with my family which is husband and 3 kids,can I use one magicband to purchase everything in the park for my family or everyone need to have they own band? Because buying 5 bands is a little pricey But we using just one creditcard in This trip

    Hi Yohanna,

    Your magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort is just a little over one month away. Are you getting SO excited?! Before you know it, you'll be right in the middle of the magic, eating Mickey-shaped treats, smiling on your favorite attractions, and waving to beloved Disney characters. I'm excited FOR you!

    MagicBands are wonderful and make all aspects of your visit awfully easy, but they're certainly not required. If you'd prefer to use one, but your family members don't, that's perfectly fine! Every member of your party will need something to access the theme parks, though, so if they don't use a MagicBand, they'll need to either use a card or the brand new Disney MagicMobile service. No data is actually stored on any of these devices; they simply link back to all of the information stored within your My Disney Experience account, so please feel free to use whatever works best for you and your family! If you're staying in the magic with Disney Resorts Collection, you will be able to purchase MagicBands ahead of time at a discount. You'll also have the added benefit of being able to charge any shopping and dining purchases back to your Resort hotel room with a MagicBand and PIN number. It's certainly fine if you're the only member of your family with that ability, as long as that works for your family's traveling and spending habits.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Yohanna, and please don't hesitate to come back and see us again if we can help with anything else. I hope you and your fellow Mouseketeers have a truly magical vacation next month!
