    Hi there, we made rather last minute reservations so we were not able to get magic bands. When we check into the resort will they give us our park passes?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Elizabeth. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to see you'll be traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few, short days! This last-minute Disney vacation is sure to be magical. 

     You're going to love experiencing the Disney Resorts Collection. When you stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you stay IN the magic, even after you've left the theme parks! When you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel, be sure to stop by the Front Desk. A friendly Cast Member there will issue every member of your party a Key to the World Card. You can use your Key to the World Cards to open your hotel room door, enter the theme parks, and link your Disney PhotoPass photos to your My Disney Experience account. 

     If you'd prefer the convenience of a MagicBand, you'll be pleased to know that they're available to purchase at retail locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort! You'll even find a selection of MagicBands in the gift shop of your Disney Resort hotel. Once you purchase a MagicBand, you can easily link it to your My Disney Experience account by following the directions on the band's packaging. 

     Have you downloaded the My Disney Experience mobile app? It's magic at your fingertips! The My Disney Experience mobile app has lots of cool features, including many capabilities of a Key to the World Card or MagicBand. You can use the app to open your Disney Resort hotel room door, and you can use the app to create a Disney MagicMobile Pass for theme park entry! How cool is that?

     I hope this was helpful, Elizabeth. I'm wishing you a magical stay at the Walt Disney World Resort!
