    Hi My name is Erika, I have a family of 4 we are going to Disney world. Can i just use one magic band for that four of us?

    Hello Erika, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with an important planning question.

    When you are planning your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, you want to use the number one planning tool to help you do it all, My Disney Experience. Each person in your travel party over the age of 3 needs their own individual account. MagicBands allow you to access the information in your account. If you are a guest of select Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, you will receive a complimentary MagicBand for each person on your reservation. Your MagicBand will be the key that unlocks the door to your room.  If you are staying off property, all of your information will be linked to an admission card. You can purchase MagicBands online or at any Disney Theme Park or select Disney Springs shops.

    You will need to link your theme park admission tickets to your My Disney Experience accounts in order to make your FastPass+ reservations for your family and friends. You can make your selections 30 days in advance if you are not staying on Disney property and 60 days in advance of your arrival if you have a Resort Hotel reservation. You will redeem your FastPass+ experiences by tapping your MagicBand or Card at the designated touch point. MagicBands also give Disney Resort guests the ability to charge merchandise and food back to their room, with a debit or credit card on file. Disney’s PhotoPass Photographers will also use your MagicBand to upload photos they have taken to your account. The purchase of a Memory Maker will allow you to edit, crop, download and share all of your photos. As you can see, MagicBands can do so many things, each guest will need their own linked to their My Disney Experience account.

    See ya real soon,
