    I have magic bands included with my tickets. Where can I collect them from?

    Hi Martin, welcome to the planDisney! I bet you're all packed and full of excitement for a festive adventure at Walt Disney World.

    If you have separately purchased a Disney Band (known as Magic Bands in the States), you may collect these from the front desk at your Disney Resort hotel. However, it sounds like you may have booked with an independent agent rather than directly through the Walt Disney World Travel Company, as Disney Bands are no longer included in packages. I have recently seen agents in the U.K. offering an inclusive package with pick-up points in Disney Springs. It's best to confirm with your booking company regarding the location to pick up your bands. Complimentary transportation is available between all Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs. Also, you don't need to scan your Disney Band to enter the Parks, as you can use Disney MagicMobile instead. So, there's no need to worry about access. Indeed the My Disney Experience App can help act as a door key and much more. 

    Any time of year at Walt Disney World is magical, but Christmastime sees the magic taken to new heights. From the snoap falling on Main Street, U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom Park, to the festive sweet treats (yes, please for Christmas Wreath Doughnuts!), your set for an unforgettable break. 

    Enjoy a jolly holiday!

Welcome to planDisney! I'm happiest in perpetual planning mode for our next Walt Disney World trip - it's my chance to catch a bit of Disney magic in-between visits.

Walt Disney World provides the ultimate sense of escapism! I understand how much guests want to get out of their trip, especially when travelling internationally. Please let me help you prepare a 'practically perfect in every way' journey so you can be truly whisked away by Disney magic!
