    Will Magic bands work at the Disney Swan Hotel? Also, I don't have a "card", but I linked my park tickets to my Apple wallet, so is that my actual park entry ticket?

    Hi Mark!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney! You are going to love staying at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel. I love that this hotel is right in the heart of the Disney magic, allowing you to take advantage of convenient, complimentary bus or water transportation to all of the theme parks. Plus, since your vacation "home" is right on Disney's BoardWalk, you'll easily be able to enjoy all of the dining and entertainment located in this beautiful area of the resort.

    Unfortunately, since the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel is not part of the Disney Resorts Collection, you won't be able to use MagicBands to access your hotel room. However, MagicBands will give you access to your theme park tickets, Lightning Lane reservations, and Disney PhotoPass account. If you have utilized the Disney MagicMobile Service to add your theme park tickets to your Apple Wallet, then you're all set to use your phone to enter the theme parks and access your Lightning Lane reservations. You're also welcome to visit Guest Relations to pick up a complimentary ticket card if you would like a backup.

    Mark, as you continue preparing for your upcoming trip, be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog for the latest announcements. Have you seen that Characters have returned to giving hugs and autographs to Guests? There are so many new and returning experiences headed to Walt Disney World Resort that you will be able to enjoy and the blog is the perfect way to way on top of the latest info. Feel free to come back to see us if you have additional questions as you continue planning! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
