    Is the magic band the only way you can get into your resort hotel or could I possibly get a room key?

    Hello, Caroline, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we're glad you're here.

    MagicBands and Admission Cards afford you a carefree visit, Caroline, and you can use a MagicBand or Theme Park Media Card (resembles a plastic credit card) which will:
    - unlock your Disney Resort hotel room door
    - allow you to enter Disney Theme and Water Parks
    - allow you to check in at FastPass+ entrances
    - allow you to connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account
    - charge food and merchandise purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room during your hotel stay

    Many Guests benefit from and enjoy the use of MagicBands because they are secure, all-in-one devices that are waterproof wristbands. They look like a bracelet or watch and they store all your vacation information so all you need to do is touch them to the "Touch Points" throughout Walt Disney World Resort. Wearing one gives you greater ease and flexibility and the chances of losing a MagicBand are low as it fastens securely.

    Customize and control your vacation before and during your visit through My Disney Experience online and mobile app for such important details as Advanced Dining Reservations, securing FastPass+ experiences and personalizing your MagicBands.

    We hope this information is useful, Caroline, and would be pleased to offer any further assistance to you with your planning in the near future.

    Best Disney Wishes~
