    Do you need a magic band for each ticket or will one get in the entire party

    Hi Lisa,

    I hope you're having fun dreaming about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! We're so glad you stopped by planDisney for a little help with figuring out how MagicBands work!

    As a mama of five Mouseketeers, I am a HUGE fan of MagicBands. I don't need to keep track of physical tickets or Resort hotel room keys for my whole family, and everyone has everything they need right on their wrist. You can use MagicBands to enter the theme parks and link your Disney PhotoPass photos to your account, and if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you may also use them to enter your room and pay for any dining or merchandise purchases. Here's the magical thing about MagicBands...no data is actually stored on the MagicBands themselves; rather, they simply link directly to any information stored in My Disney Experience. Because they function like a physical ticket would, each MagicBand is linked to one specific person. While it's fine if some members of your party use one and others don't, anyone who would like to take advantage of the convenience of a MagicBand would need their own. If you decide to go the MagicBand route, it's easy peasy to link them to your My Disney Experience account, and then you'll be all set to let the magic and fun begin!

    Thanks again for coming to see us at planDisney, Lisa, and don't hesitate to bring us more questions as you're thinking through the details of your trip. I see that your visit is just a little over one month away, and I hope you and your Mouseketeers are counting down the days until all your Disney dreams come true! Spring is a wonderful time to escape to sunny Florida, and I wish you and your family a truly magical vacation!
