    Should we get magic bands for a family of 4? We are not staying on WDW property, so it looks like I can only use the bands for FP+, Photo Makers, and tickets. Do the admission cards do the same thing? (I wish we could charge purchases!) TIA!

    Hi Sara,

    MagicBands are lots of fun to have. My kids love wearing them, and they enjoy accessorizing them. However, they definitely aren't required. They make things easier, since your tickets and plans will be just a swipe of your MagicBand away. But you can definitely have the same functionality with your admission cards.

    Have a great vacation!
