Family planning a trip

    Are magic bands included with our park tickets or are hotel reservations? I am booked with DVC points at Copper Creek and purchased a 7 day park ticket but cannot figure out how to get the Magic Bands.

    Hi, Carolee! We're glad you stopped by to visit us at planDisney. Getting that MagicBand box in the mail is almost as exciting as Christmas Day! I used to surprise my boys by wrapping it up and putting a big bow on top. Their eyes would grow wide when they realized what was inside and that a trip to Walt Disney World was right around the corner. 

    I'm happy to tell you that all Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guests with an arrival date through December 31, 2020, will receive complimentary MagicBands, and this includes Disney Vacation Club Members (or Guests) staying on points. Requesting your MagicBands is quickly done through your My Disney Experience online account. Just click on the link that says My MagicBands and Cards, and as long as your resort reservation and tickets are linked, you'll see a rectangular button that says, "Get Started." For each person in your traveling party, you can select a specific color and choose what name you want printed inside. Disney also sells premium special edition MagicBands that you can purchase instead of the complimentary solid color bands. I have my eye set on the Castle and Fireworks MagicBand for my next trip...it's SO pretty! You'll want to place your order at least 11 days before your arrival if you wish to have your MagicBands shipped to your home (and at least six days before your arrival to have them shipped to your Resort hotel). For trips planned in 2021 and beyond (cue Buzz Lightyear), Disney has hinted that they plan to unveil an innovative new offering as part of the My Disney Experience app that will bring features of a MagicBand to your smartphone. I'm excited to see what the future holds!

    Enjoy your stay at Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Carolee! This is one of our favorite places to stay, and it really does feel like a rustic retreat, especially when you witness the Fire Rock Geyser on the property that erupts every hour. One of the most beautiful features at the Wilderness Lodge is the towering 82-foot tall stone lobby fireplace that is layered to look like the Grand Canyon; you'll see a roaring fire here even in the middle of the summer. I bet you can't wait to hear those words, "Welcome Home!"

    I hope you have a magical vacation!

Hi, I'm Eean from Pennsylvania!  I may have an unusual name, but my passion for Disney is not unique.  It’s amazing how many people you can find who love talking about, "The Most Magical Place On Earth!"  I'm that mom who always has her ears perked at PTO meetings, in the grocery store aisle, or at middle school basketball games waiting for an opportunity to give someone a planning tip to help make their vacation even more magical.
