    Do I need a MagicBand? I have just a one day pass to Hollywood Studios.

    Welcome back to planDisney, Angela. Thank you for trusting us to help plan your upcoming trip!

    Disney's Hollywood Studios is a fantastic park. Then again, aren't they all? My version of a perfect day there definitely includes at least one spin on Slinky Dog Dash and Toy Story Mania. Oh, and definitely a tasty lunch at The Hollywood Brown Derby. I'm a sucker for their amazing Cobb Salad. Of course, I could not imagine missing Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway; that attraction is just adorable!

    If you don't already have a MagicBand, Angela, there's no requirement to purchase one. MagicBands make multi-day trips more convenient, especially if you're staying in a Disney resort hotel, but they' aren't necessary. I would, however, recommend that you download the My Disney Experience mobile app and create a profile, if you haven't already. Doing so will allow you to link up the one-day ticket you have and make a theme park reservation (which you'll need to gain entry to the park). It's also a great idea to read up on the pandemic-related updates that might make your Disney experience just a little different than it may have been during past visits. It's always a good thing to be prepared, right? If you don't believe me, just ask Simba's uncle, Scar. 

    I sure hope you enjoy an unforgettable day, overflowing with all things glitzy and glamorous. And hey, don't be a stranger around here! Come on back if we can be of further assistance.

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
