    Do you get the magical extras card if you buy the magic bands from the Disney store?

    Hi, Aaron!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    What did we do before MagicBands?  I absolutely love the convenience of having all of the information from My Disney Experience right on my wrist when I'm wearing my MagicBand.  I must admit that I have accumulated quite a collection of MagicBands.  Since you can continue to use any active MagicBand until the batteries run out, I always bring several with me when I visit the Walt Disney World Resort so that I can match the various colors and designs to my outfit each day.

    The Magical Extras Savings Card that you asked about is given to guests who book a Walt Disney World Resort vacation package.  Vacation packages consist of a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel stay and theme park tickets.  Guests may also opt to add a Disney Dining Plan to their vacation package.  The Magical Extras Savings Card provides guests with a variety of discounts on dining, shopping, and entertainment.  While it may arrive with the guests' MagicBands, they are receiving it as part of their vacation package.  If you purchase a MagicBand from shopDisney or a retail location at the Walt Disney World Resort, it will not come with a Magical Extras Savings Card.

    Even though you will not receive a Magical Extras Savings Card, I think it is quite useful for guests who are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel to purchase a MagicBand.  Wearing a MagicBand will allow you to enter the theme parks (with a valid theme park ticket linked to your My Disney Experience account), access your selected FastPass+ attractions, and link your Disney PhotoPass Service pictures to your My Disney Experience account.  In fact, there are some attraction photos that you will only be able to access if you are wearing a MagicBand while experiencing that attraction.

    I hope that you find this information useful, Aaron.  If you have any additional questions as you get ready for your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth, please visit us again.  See ya real soon!
