    I'm planning my own stay this year, I have my own Magic band but my boyfriend does not. We are staying on property , would it be easier and cheaper to get a resort package or to just buy our tickets and his magic band separately??

    Hi, Maddy!
    I'm excited you have a chance to share your Walt Disney World Resort experience with your boyfriend!

    Since you are both staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, your visit includes two new MagicBands. All you have to do is make sure you are both connected to your resort reservation in My Disney Experience. While you're online, you'll see a "MagicBands & Cards" section. That's where you can customize your bands before you arrive! You can decide if you want a vacation package or not. Just by staying on property, you get bands!

    I hope that helps clarify your MagicBand options for your trip! Let me know if I can help with any additional questions before you arrive.
