    When the parks reopen on July 11 will you need to use a pin with your Magicbands

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shari! 

    I am actually dusting off my special MagicBands in preparation for the reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort! I cannot wait to go back to the magic and wear this amazing device that makes visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth very convenient and now much safer! 

    Reduced contact will be one of the guiding principles during the upcoming phased reopening, so cashless payment options will be encouraged. It is recommended that Guests plan to use debit cards, credit cards and Disney Gift Cards. Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can also use their MagicBands to charge purchases to their room during their stay. If you decide to use your MagicBand as a payment method you will need to use a PIN to confirm transactions. 

    Moms Panel Tip: keep the lasted version of the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device and take advantage of Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering during your visit. You will be able to order and pay for meals at participating locations using the app and this way help to promote physical distancing and reduced contact. 

    I hope this helps you while planning, Shari! Don’t forget to visit the Disney Parks Blog for the latest on reopening, and please come back to visit us if you have additional questions. 

    Best magical wishes,
