    One guest in my party does not have a magic band. Isn’t there a card option to use to get on rides / enter the parks ?

    Hi Jennifer and welcome to planDisney!

    MagicBands are a really convenient way to navigate any Walt Disney World vacation, especially at the theme parks.  There is no need to dig around in your bag for multiple cards when you have the magic right on your wrist.  MagicBands give you access to your Disney Resort hotel room door, entrance to the theme parks, entrance to Lightning Lane attraction queues and they are an easy way to make purchases.  

    A MagicBand is not required at Walt Disney World and you can pick up a hard ticket at any theme park ticket window, Guest Relations window or at the front desk of your Disney Resort hotel.  The hard ticket allows you to enter the parks and the Lightning Lane attractions queues.  If the Guest in your party decides they would like a MagicBand, they can purchase one in practically any gift shop across Walt Disney World and easily link it to their account through the My Disney Experience Mobile App.

    I see you'll be visiting in just under a month!  June is a great time to visit Walt Disney World.  I do hope you have an EPCOT day planned to visit the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival.  We love wandering around the park and finding our favorite character topiaries while munching on some delicious International cuisine from the Outdoor Kitchens around the World Showcase.  Every bit of this park during this festival is Instagram worthy!

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
