    Does a phone mess up a magic band like it does a normal hotel key card? And also does the AoA have complementary toiletries such as razors tooth brushes and toothpaste? Those are what I always forget to pack.

    Hi Ashley, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    I have personally used my MagicBands on many trips and have never experienced any interference from my phone - and I use them together all the time to make sure I make the most of all the amazing features available on the My Disney Experience mobile app. I fell in love with the new Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering on my first meal!

    I have just called Disney's Art of Animation Resort to double-check the availability of those toiletries and they can be bought at the Ink & Paint Shop, but not requested through Mousekeeping, though. If you forget them, you already know where to find them! 

    After forgetting many important items for my Walt Disney World Resort vacations like my favorite sunscreen, I've come up with a checklist that includes all the essentials my husband and I usually need. I keep it online on a Google Drive spreadsheet and it helps me to keep track of what I've already packed, what needs to be packed and what I need to buy before each trip.

    I hope these tips help you enjoy your MagicBands and your stay at the gorgeous Disney's Art of Animation Resort. I am sure that this trip will be packed with fun and memorable moments! 

    The Disney Parks Moms Panel will be here if you want more advice or help to make it as magical as it can be. You've got Disney friends in us! 

    May the magic be with you,
