    If we order and customize our Magic Bands, can we switch them out for cards if we find we don't want to wear the bands?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Steve and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. From the original MagicBand to the new MagicBand 2 we continue to collect and proudly wear them. Every trip we customize them to remember that Disney adventure. We consider it a souvenir compliments from the Big Cheese, Mickey Mouse. However, somedays we prefer to have an Admission Card.

    Admission Cards work the same as MagicBands (and MagicBand 2) for entrance into the theme parks and water parks, unlocking your Disney Resort hotel room, FastPass+ entrances, connecting Disney PhotoPass images to your My Disney Experience account, as well as charging food, beverage, and merchandise purchases. To receive a complimentary admission card simply ask the Cast Member at the front desk of your Disney Resort hotel or at any theme park ticket window. The best part about admission cards are the images printed on the front. From classic Disney characters to theme park attractions these cards are a little extra pixie dust in our pockets.

    Disney Dad Tip: Memory Maker through Disney PhotoPass Service is the best way to capture your Disney magical moments. Disney PhotoPass photographers are staged all over the theme parks to take your picture complimented by iconic backgrounds. In addition, there are many attractions that capture you in the action. Recently, the happy haunts at the Haunted Mansion started to materialize for photos. The best part of Disney PhotoPass Service is that everyone gets to be in the picture rather than having a designated photographer.

    Steve, enjoy making many Magical memories.
