    We are planning on surprising our kids with a trip to Disney in October (we have not booked just yet). We have not been since they switched over to the magic bands. Are the magic bands included with your reservation or do I need to purchase those myself?

    Hi there Daina!

    I'm so excited to hEAR you are planning to surprise your kids with a trip to Walt Disney World Resort in October!  My children will tell you that their most favorite Walt Disney World vacations are when we have surprised them. 

    Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel receive complimentary MagicBands. Follow the link I have provided to learn more about MagicBands and the many ways Guests are able to use them.

    I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to reach out again. It's always a treat to assist a fellow Georgian. Best wishes for a magical trip, Daina!

    Happy Planning,
