    We are planning a trip to Disney World in September this year. Are Magic Bands still included when you book a package or do I need to purchase them separately?

    Hello, Destany! I’m so very excited to hear you will soon be visiting Walt Disney World with your loved ones! 

    It sounds like you have reserved a Walt Disney World vacation package, and you’ll soon be enjoying a stay at a Disney Resort Hotel! While staying on property, your MagicBand truly becomes your key to the Kingdom. It can serve as a room key, method of payment, Park Ticket, and perfect accessory, plus so much more! MagicBands are still alive and well, but they are no longer complimentary for Guests. However, you can purchase them easily via your My Disney Experience account! In fact, there are now so many premium, themed MagicBands to choose from, and it may be hard to choose just one! Destany, did you know that you can still use any prior MagicBands that are linked to your My Disney Experience account? If you are storing any away at home, check to see if they are active in your account and bring them along!

    While you are preparing, make sure that you have the lasted version of the My Disney Experience Mobile App downloaded on your mobile device and that you have browsed the Experience Updates pages for the latest information on all the ways that Walt Disney World is keeping Guests and Cast Members safe and in the magic.

    Don’t be a stranger, and have a wonderful trip!

    See ya real soon,
