    I would like to know if we buy park tickets from an authorized vendor do we get magic bands from WDW when we check in or do we need to buy our own? Thank you

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michelle, we thank you for this excellent question.

    Michelle, if you are a Guest at a Disney Resort hotel, then your MagicBands are complimentary as one of many unique benefits. If you are staying at a non-Disney Resort hotel, you are welcome to purchase your MagicBands in advance of your visit through the Disney Store online, or during your visit at any Walt Disney World Resort retail outlet.

    Be sure to Link Your Reservations and Purchases, specifically, your valid Theme Park Admission Cards and MagicBands to your My Disney Experience account to begin your FastPass+ Planning 30 days in advance of your scheduled Theme Park visit, or 60 days before your arrival if staying at a Disney Resort hotel.

    Through My Disney Experience you can also customize your plans for Advanced Dining Reservations, retrieve important Theme Park information and utilize the free My Disney Experience mobile app to manage your plans during your visit using complimentary Resort Guest WiFi.

    Thrilling Walt Disney World Resort adventures await your arrival, Michelle.

    We hope this information is helpful and wish you many magical Disney adventures!
