    We no longer have our magic bands and are planning a one day trip on Friday, October 15. Can we pick up replacements at the gate?

    Hi, Lynnda! Thanks for stopping by to see us here at planDisney! 

    Oh my Citrus Swirl! Only one more sleep 'til Disney! How excited are you? You're only hours away from hitting that touchpoint and walking into a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Speaking of the entrance touchpoints, let's make sure you've got a way to get into those parks! Disney doesn't offer complimentary MagicBands with Resort hotel stays anymore, so you'll need to buy new ones if you'd like to use them. You can find MagicBands for purchase at shops all over the theme parks and Resort hotels, so you're sure to spot a design you like!

    But honestly, Lynnda, while MagicBands are fun and functional, you really don't need them. You can pick up free Admission Cards at the ticket windows or Guest Relations before you enter the parks and use those throughout your trip (or until you buy new MagicBands!). Plus, Disney has a cool new option that lets you save your tickets right to your phone! It's called Disney MagicMobile service, and you can access it from your My Disney Experience mobile app. When you open the app, click on the three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner of your screen, then on "Disney MagicMobile." From there, follow the prompts to create your digital pass and save it to the electronic wallet on your device. Then, when you arrive at the parks, just hold your phone up to the touchpoint, and you're in! If you have multiple family members on your account, you'll call up the passes from your wallet and swipe through to scan each one. It's quick, easy, and really kind of fun!

    I hope this helps you get ready for your big day tomorrow, Lynnda! Have an amazing Walt Disney World vacation, and please come see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
