    I'm wondering about magic bands. I have mine from previous trips and it is linked for this trip. I do not have one for my daughter and mom. Could I use the mobil app to get them into the park and then just use my magic band to scan for photo pass?

    Hi Hannah, and welcome to planDisney! 

    The countdown to your most magical vacation is officially on! Hannah, your girls’ trip sounds like it’s going to be quite the adventure. I have one planned soon, and I know that I can’t wait! Nothing is better than a week full of character hugs, DOLE Whips, and magical memory-making with your favorite people. 

    Your scenario is exactly what I do on almost a weekly basis at the Most Magical Place on Earth. I use an older MagicBand, a MagicBand+, or my Apple Watch that is linked to the My Disney Experience App to enter the reserved theme park. Meanwhile, I will scan my husband and sons through the Mickey-shaped entry point via the Disney MagicMobile Service. This does take a little bit more time at the entrance to flip through your phone’s MagicMobile Passes, but it is an option and I do it a lot. 

    When it comes to capturing those moments using a PhotoPass photographer, you only need to scan your MagicBand or MagicBand+ to receive the photos for everyone in the group. Whenever my family takes a photo in front of iconic locations like Cinderella Castle or the Tree of Life, everyone looks to mommy to work her magic.

    I truly hope that your crew has a fantastic vacation later this month, Hannah. If you have any other questions as you put together the final touches on your game plan, please revisit us here at planDisney! 

    Magic always,
