    Do we get new magic bands?

    Hi Jill!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I'm such a big fan of Walt Disney World Resort's MagicBands. The comfortable, waterproof bands can be used to:

    • Unlock the door of your Disney Resort hotel room
    • Enter theme and water parks (with valid admission)
    • Check in at FastPass+ entrances to shows and attractions
    • Connect Disney PhotoPass images to your My Disney Experience account
    • Charge food and merchandise purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room
    My favorite feature is unlocking the door of my hotel room. No more fumbling in my bag for a key card - all I have to do is tap my wrist to the touch point, and voila - I'm in! MagicBands are super convenient as a method of payment as well. It's so nice not to have to carry cash or have my wallet with me, especially at the pool. When we pop in to the pool bar for a drink or snack, all I need is my MagicBand!

    Guests that book a stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel automatically receive MagicBands with each reservation. Even if you already have MagicBands from a previous stay, you will still receive new MagicBands with each new resort reservation. (If you want to continue using the bands you already have, you'll have the option to decline new bands on your My Disney Experience account.)

    I hope this helps answer your question. Have a magical day! - Diane W.
