    Hello, We have not been to the Magic Kingdom in 11 years. Is it practical to get a Magic Band for just one day

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Thomas! 

    Wow! 11-years since your last visit to the most magical place on earth. You’re in for a magical adventure. There have been changes, but you’ll be pleased to see many of the beloved attractions we all love are still there, ready to create new memories with your loved ones. I hope this visit is one to remember! 

    Thomas, though not necessary, MagicBands are a fun accessory that will act as your key to the kingdom during your visit. It’s easy to use, since you’ll have it on you, you won’t have to dig for your theme park tickets throughout the day. And after your visit, it’s a fun souvenir you can take home.

    Your MagicBand will link with your My Disney Experience account and also hold your FastPass+ for your selected attractions. But you can still enjoy these benefits with your theme park entrance cards. 

    Ultimately, you can choose to add MagicBands to your visit, but they are not necessary to enjoy all the magic. 

    If you choose to purchase MagicBands, you can find them throughout the resort, or if you want to purchase them before you arrive, you can visit shopDisney online and have them shipped home so you can have them with you when you arrive.

    I hope you have a magical time during your return to the Walt Disney World Resort. If you have any additional questions, please do come back and see us again. We’re happy to help!
