    Do I need to pre order a Magic Band online?

    Hello Carolyn!

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your very first question. Nothing makes us happier than helping Guests plan the perfect Disney vacation!

    I love purchasing a new MagicBand every time I visit the Walt Disney World Resort! They are special souvenirs and when we return home, they remind us of happy memories made at The Most Magical Place on Earth. Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel are welcome to purchase MagicBands at pre-arrival prices before their trip, but if you do not plan to use this all-in-one device, you can stop by Front Desk upon arrival and request a Key to the World card or use Disney MagicMobile and the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device.

    Disney MagicMobile service offers a convenient and contactless option for entering theme parks and is now available to all Guests using iPhone and Apple Watch (coming soon to other smart devices). After linking valid theme park tickets to your Disney account, you will be able to create a Disney MagicMobile pass through the My Disney Experience app and add it to your digital wallet. To enter a theme park, simply hold your iPhone or Apple Watch near an access point, just as you would do with a MagicBand. 

    planDisney tip: You may use Disney MagicMobile service, a MagicBand, or a Key to the World card interchangeably. For example, if you decide not to purchase a MagicBand, you can use Disney MagicMobile to enter the theme parks with valid admission, and a Key to the World card to unlock the door of your Guest room during your stay (this can also be done by using the My Disney Experience mobile app).

    I hope this information is helpful, Carolyn! Come back to visit us real soon for more tips and advice as you plan your visit. 

    Best Disney wishes,
