    Planning a trip in July - we will be staying onsite. I will be getting park tickets from my employer & will also be booking flight/resort via a Southwest airlines package. Will we still get the complimentary magic bands and be able to use fast pass?

    Dear Romy,

    I'm so glad that you decided to stop by and visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel for the first time, with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Yes, since you are staying on site at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, all members of your party will receive MagicBands for use during your stay! That is one of the awesome perks of staying on site that I love. Once you have your tickets and hotel reservation numbers, be sure to link them right away to your My Disney Experience account. That will ensure that you can make your FastPass+ selections at the correct time and have the most choice in terms of the attractions that you would like to choose!

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
