    Are magic bands still complimentary for Disney resort guests?

    Hi Jessica! Welcome to planDisney.

    Let the countdown begin for a late August visit to Walt Disney World Resort during The World's Most Magical Celebration. While exploring the parks and resorts, treat yourself to a specialty-themed treat from the 50th Anniversary Celebration Sips and Bites Guide. At Magic Kingdom Park, stop by Casey's Corner for the Walt's Chili-Cheese Dog.

    Oh, how I love planning which of my MagicBands will be coming with me on vacation. While still available for purchase, MagicBands are no longer complimentary with a resort stay. Stay tuned for any pending announcements about the new interactive MagicBand+ on Disney Parks Blog coming this summer.

    Did you know by setting up a Disney MagicMobile Service Digital Pass you eliminate the need for a physical ticket or MagicBand to enter the parks? You can also utilize it to make purchases to your hotel folio and link with Photopass. Open your My Disney Experience Mobile App, click on the three horizontal lines in the bottom right-hand corner, choose "Disney MagicMobile," tap on the "+" sign in the top right-hand corner, select the guest name, and follow the prompts. Once created, I suggest adding your pass to your Apple Wallet, Apple watch, or digital wallet. If using an Apple device set your new pass to "Express Mode." By doing this, you will not have to unlock your device to use your digital pass. 

    And finally, you can always go old school and pick up a complimentary ticket card from any ticket booth located outside of the parks. Alternatively, stop by the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs.

    Keeping it Magical,
