    I’m reading in some places on the website that magic bags are no longer complimentary, but in others it says that a complimentary gray band will be sent to the resort for those who don’t order one ahead of time. Will we get complimentary gray bands then?

    Greetings Annie! 

    Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for stopping by with your question for us!

    It looks like there’s a great big beautiful tomorrow for you as your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort is just around the corner! Imagine strolling down Main Street, U.S.A. with the delectable aroma of fresh baked goods as you pass by Main Street Confectionery to get a glimpse of the most magical sight, Cinderella Castle gleaming just a few steps away. Can you picture it, Annie? You’ll have the most enchanting time!

    I love MagicBands, as they make my family’s Walt Disney World Resort vacation feel easy and incredibly convenient because they can be used to enter the Theme Parks with valid admission, unlock the door of your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room, connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account and more! The official word is that MagicBands are no longer complimentary but are now at a discounted price through your Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation. Rather than the gray MagicBands, the Front Desk will provide complimentary Key to the World cards for your visit. The cards also operate as your Walt Disney World Resort room key, Park Ticket, and payment method should you choose to do so. And these cards recently came out with the cutest new designs of the Sensational Six: Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Donald, and Daisy!

    If you’re like me and collect all types of MagicBands, you can also purchase them at shopDisney, at locations in the Theme Parks, as well as Disney Springs

    I hope you’ve made your Disney Park Pass reservations, along with your Advanced Dining Reservations! If you think of more questions for us about your vacation, we’re all EARS!

    Have the most enchanting time, Annie!
