    Hi! Planning for Disney trip on feb23. We need to know if we purchase a stay at disney hotels we will have magic band + included with the reservation, or we have to buy them apart from reservation hotel. We alredy have old magicbands not sure if they work

    ¡Saludos, Lina! Welcome to planDisney, we are so glad you stopped by the Panel today. Oh boy! You must be feeling all the excitement counting down those final months leading to your visit to Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Lina, you made the right choice in picking a Disney resort to call home during your visit! I love how the hotels that are a part of the Disney Resorts Collection are an extension of the magic you experience in the parks. I love MagicBands too! They are a fun accessory to wear to the parks, and are so versatile, from opening your resort room door to making purchases at the gift shops throughout Walt Disney World. With the introduction of MagicBand+ this summer, they have now been elevated to be used in more ways, including having a rechargeable battery, and unlocking enchanting interactions throughout the parks! MagicBand+ at this time is not included in your reservation, you will have to purchase separately. Check out shopDisney for the latest designs, and check the My MagicBands and Cards section within your My Disney Experience account for purchase as well.

    Lina, have the most magical time at Walt Disney World!
