    if we do not want magic bands for our stay, what do we do?

    Hey there, John! Thanks for coming to us here at planDisney to ask your Walt Disney World vacation planning question! 

    When you book your vacation and pay your deposit, you can link your vacation package in your MyDisneyExperience account. On a computer, if you hover over the “MyDisneyExperience” header and then go down to “My MagicBands and Cards” and click on it, you will see “Your MagicBand Order” and the people who are on your resort reservation should be listed. Here is where you could order new MagicBands at a discount if you wanted them. 

    Below that you should see all the bands that are linked to your various family members. You can use any of the active ones on your next vacation to Walt Disney World. Since you do not want new MagicBands, simply do not complete the order for the new ones. You have until 10 days prior to your arrival to change your mind. 

    I am a MagicBand addict. This is my first souvenir from any of my visits “home” to Walt Disney World. I love getting that box in the mail with my personalized MagicBand. I also have more bands than I could ever wear again! 

    When you are 60 days out from your vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth, you can make some dining reservations. I highly recommend heading to Whispering Canyon Café at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge for lunch. The bison burger is SO good, and possibly large enough to share. I also love to have breakfast here, and then take the boat over to Magic Kingdom. This makes for a perfectly lovely start to a day at Magic Kingdom. 

    I hope this helps with your December vacation planning. The holiday decorations are stunning! Be sure to visit Disney’s Beach Club Resort to see the Little Mermaid Themed Gingerbread Carousel. It is gorgeous! 

    Happy Traveling,

GAWRSH! Hiya pals! I am a Goofy-loving mom of 2, who is married to my real-life Prince Charming. My family supports my passion for all things Disney. Walt Disney World was my very first vacation, when I was just 3 months old, and I recently completed my 73rd trip to a Disney location! I have been fortune enough to parasail high above the Disney Fantasy, attend opening day of Batuu, snorkel in the lagoon at Disney's Aulani, and SO MUCH MORE! I can't wait to help you plan your Disney vacation!
