    Might get Memory Maker. Don't have a MagicBand. Ticket will sub, but read-MagicBand is required to receive certain attraction photos and other digital content. Sounds like some ride pics won't link without? Should I get a M-Band just in case?

    Hello, Jeannine, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You are correct that there are some Walt Disney World Resort attractions’ photos and special videos that are only available to Guests who are wearing a MagicBand linked to their My Disney Experience account when they ride the attraction. (Some of my favorites are the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park and Slinky Dog Dash at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.)

    Although only Guests staying at an official Walt Disney World Resort hotel receive a complimentary MagicBand and have the ability to use the MagicBand to unlock their hotel room door, charge purchases to their folio or redeem Dining Plan credits, any Guest may purchase a MagicBand through or many of the shops at Walt Disney World Resort to use in lieu of their Theme Park Admission Card, as well as FastPass+ redemption, PhotoPass photos, and those special photos and videos mentioned above. For me and my family, the ease and convenience of the MagicBand (not to mention those photo perks) makes having one a necessity for each of our Walt Disney World Resort vacations (no matter where we’re staying). And since they’re good from year to year, any MagicBand you purchase for your upcoming vacation will still be usable for years to come. 

    While there are low-cost solid colored MagicBands available, I prefer the Limited Edition MagicBands. I have a bigger collection than I care to admit, but I love being able to choose a different MagicBand for each day of my Walt Disney World Resort vacations-- coordinating with my outfit for the day or the Theme Park(s) we plan to visit. Just be warned: once you have one MagicBand, you’ll want more!

    Please let us know if there are any additional questions we can answer about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit, Jeannine. We’re always happy to help!
