    Do we get magic bands at check in?

    Hi Carolyn,

    I am so happy that you are here. Thank you for joining us at planDisney with your question. 

    Can you feel it? That's the excitement of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation in your future. Before you know it, you will be Riding High in the Sky on the Disney Monorail, exploring the Mountains (Space Mountain, Tiana's Bayou Adventure, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain) and enjoying all of the delicious Disney Dining options.

    MagicBands are available for purchase at a promotional rate before your arrival at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel through your My Disney Experience account, or you can opt to shop for the perfect powerful wrist accessory once you arrive. I know it is important to select the perfect color or character for your that most magical accessory, so check out the options at Please know, Carolyn, complimentary MagicBands are no longer included with a Walt Disney World Resort hotel stay.

    If you are interested in a way to conveniently unlock all of the Walt Disney World potential without a MagicBand, consider using Disney MagicMobile Service on your cell phone! Use your phone to enter Disney theme parks, unlock your Disney Resort hotel room door, access your Disney PhotoPass images, and more! 

    To use Disney Magic Mobile Service, log in to the My Disney Experience Mobile App and Link your theme park tickets and Resort hotel reservations. From there, set up your Disney MagicMobile pass by selecting the three little lines in the bottom right corner and choosing the Disney MagicMobile option. Follow the guide to select your style and then add it to your mobile wallet. Then you are all set! 

    I hope that was helpful, Carolyn! 

    Adventure is out there,
