    Hello panel planning on booking our room for October 2019 however we do not want to purchase park passes in advance will we still receive Magic bands in the mail that we can link once we get there and pay for the park passes? Thank you

    Hello Tracey!

    Welcome back!  I am thrilled to know you are finding our vacation planning advice helpful as you plan your Walt Disney World adventure.  Thank you so much for coming back to ask another question.  It is my pleasure to help you out today.

    Any Guest who books a stay at a Disney Resort Hotel will be given the option to customize a MagicBand for that stay.  You do not have to have a ticket associated with your account to receive a MagicBand. As long as your room is booked you will be able to pick a color and add a name to your MagicBand.  Isn't that wonderful?  If you plan on buying your tickets on arrival be sure to have your MagicBands with you during your purchase and the Cast Member can link the tickets for you.   It is so simple and takes just a few minutes.    

    I hope this has helped to answer your question.   Remember you can purchase tickets online before arrival.  And if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel you have the option of booking Disney FastPass+ selections up to 60 days before arrival.   I encourage you to purchase tickets before arrival so you can take part  in the special selection dates just for Guests of select Resorts on Disney property.   Tracey,  please stop in again anytime you have another question.  We love to lend a helping hand any chance we get.

    Dream as Dreamers Do,
