    Hi! I'm planning a trip to wdw around january 2015 and i wanted to know more about de magic bands (i'm planning to stay in disney's value resort hotels) and how can i get one. Could get it in the hotels because i live in argentina, and how much they cost?

    Hello Agustina,

    MagicBands are a fun new addition to the Disney parks experience. If you're staying at a Disney resort hotel (including the value resorts), you will receive MagicBands for free as part of your vacation package. Guests staying at offsite accommodations can purchase them in the parks for approximately $13 each. (Prices can change.) 

    Disney will not ship MagicBands to South America, but you can order them in advance and they will hold them at the hotel for you to pick up when you check in. 

    If you're staying at a Disney hotel, your MagicBand will work as your room key. You can also choose to have it work as a charging mechanism to pay for food and merchandise purchases in the parks and resorts. You can also use a MagicBand to work with new FastPass+ system of making advance time selections for rides. You can also add your park tickets to your MagicBand so that it work for theme park admission as well. 

    You control all these functions through the My Disney Experience tab on or on the My Disney Experience app on your smartphone or tablet. 

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
