    Magic bands needed for the parks? What days are early entry days at each of the parks?

    Hi Toni! Welcome to planDisney! You brought your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning questions to the right place!

    MagicBands and MagicBand+ are a very convenient (and fun) addition to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! They can be used for many purposes including accessing your resort room, making charges such as purchasing merchandise and food, capturing and storing Disney PhotoPass images, as well as being used as your admission to enter the theme parks! Yes, all of that can be conveniently kept on your wrist with a MagicBand!

    Guests without MagicBands are welcome to use Disney MagicMobile service through their smart device. You can access Disney MagicMobile service through the My Disney Experience app! Disney MagicMobile service can be used for many of the same features that are available with a MagicBand! I’ve linked helpful information, as well as a video, right here that can assist you with setting up MagicMobile service on your smart device!

    Now, let’s talk about getting early entry into the Disney Parks! Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel (or participating good neighbor hotels) can enter any of the four Disney Parks – Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom – 30 minutes before the official park opening time, any day of the week! Yes, the Early Theme Park Entry benefit is available to Guests seven days a week at any Disney Park! Keep in mind that you must have valid theme park admission to enter any of the Disney Parks.

    Come on back with any additional questions, Toni! We’re happy to help with your planning!

    Dreams do come true!
