    If I have a magic band, the phone app, and the cute Keys to the Kingdom card, can I use any/all of them to access my room and the theme parks? I love the magic band, but it gets uncomfortable in the July heat. A card or phone could give me relief for a bit

    Welcome back to planDisney, Leslie! It sounds like you've got just about every digital tool ready for your next visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! Any or all of those tools will be of great use to you during your vacation this summer!

    MagicBands are awesome! I love the Disney-designs and the customization that are possible! However, Guests have mentioned that wearing something around their wrist can become a bit uncomfortable during the heat of a central-Florida day. Also, MagicBands can sometimes be forgotten at the resort or pool. The good news is that you can use the Key to the World card and/or your My Disney Experience app on your phone as a digital room key to enter your Disney Resort Hotel room and/or the Disney Parks!

    Remember, you can skip the front desk altogether by using the convenient online check-in/direct-to-room service on your My Disney Experience app. If you would feel more comfortable having a Key to the World card, you can stop by the front desk to pick-up that card. Your Key to the World card can be used just like a MagicBand! You can use it for room entry, theme park admission, and charging privileges.

    And, just in case you or a member of your party would like to use a MagicBand, while no longer complimentary, Guests are still permitted to use a MagicBand from a previous visit or purchase a new MagicBand! I find that shopDisney.com offers a great variety of MagicBands! Please note that a MagicBand from a previous visit, depending upon how much time has passed since the last visit, may have limited capabilities.

    Leslie, I hope this information is helpful as you continue planning!
