    We are planning a trip in January. My boyfriend already booked our rooms at the Disney All Star Movies Resort. He and his son already have the arm bands. How do I get them for myself and my daughter and son?

    Hi Cathi,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can imagine how excited your children are for their upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    With a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel stay, you will receive complimentary MagicBands. They are either shipped or available for pick-up from your resort hotel. If your boyfriend is making the plans and already has MagicBands, he and his son should receive additional MagicBands for this upcoming stay. He should be able to check the status of everyone's MagicBands in his My Disney Experience Account. He can login to his account and click on MagicBands and Cards. If you have not created a My Disney Experience Account, I suggest that you create one so that you can share plans with your boyfriend and/or make some of your own plans. Advanced dining reservations and Fast Pass+ selections are a must do!

    If you want a specialty MagicBand, you can order one from shopDisney Online. As you prepare for your trip, I also suggest that you pick up Disney merchandise online or at a local store. When our girls had to dress like royalty for their princess meals, we always bought their princess attire before our trips. What I love about royalty at the Walt Disney World Resort is that comfortable shoes are totally appropriate with regal outfits!

    Cathi, if you have any Star Wars fans with the courage to battle the Dark Side, sign them up for Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Arrive early to Disney's Hollywood Studios to claim a training spot!

    May the Force be with you,
