    Hi, are the magic bands only free if you are staying at Walt Disney? I thought they were also free if you had a Disney ticket pack? Thanks

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Clair!

    My family loves using MagicBands during our Walt Disney World Resort vacation. They put everyone's ticket right on their wrist and make it so much easier to get through FastPass+ touch points as we don't have to get everyone's tickets out prior to each reservation. Guests who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel will receive complimentary solid color MagicBands which will be used as their hotel room key. Also, Guests who are Annual Passholders will also receive complimentary MagicBands. Guests using single-day or multi-day tickets will receive admission cards that can be used at the same touch points for theme park admission and FastPass+ reservations.

    If you are interested in purchasing MagicBands to be used during your trip, you can choose to purchase the standard solid color MagicBands or one of the awesome graphic MagicBands. You can them on the Disney Store website and in the parks themselves. I just picked up a Tinker Bell MagicBand on my last trip and I love showing off my favorite Disney character on my wrist!

    Let us know if you have any other questions! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
