    We are planning on visiting Epcot in September 2023 I don't want to purchase a magic band for just one day, so are the cards still issued? Also, do I need the Disney Experience App for the one day? Thank you.

    Hi Pamela

    September is a great time to visit Walt Disney World Resort, and you will be engulfed in the magic in no time. Visiting EPCOT in September is also great if you happen to experience Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and get a particular song set in the same month; talk about a wild ride ahead!

    The good news is that you have options and do not have to use a MagicBand+. If you would like to have a physical card in your possession, visit any of the ticket windows at any theme park, and you can either purchase a theme park ticket or show proof of purchase, and they will issue a physical card. While you do not necessarily need to use the My Disney Experience mobile app, you will find it helpful, especially if you would like to invest in the Individual Lighting Lane for certain attractions. A plus to using the My Disney Experience mobile app is that you can use it to create your Disney MagicMobile Service so that you can have access to your theme park tickets via your smartphone. To access the DisneyMagicMobile passes, using the My Disney Experience mobile app, select “Disney MagicMobile, click the plus sign at the top right, proceed through the setup, and then save it to your digital wallet. 

    Please return and let us know how we can help you as you plan for your upcoming visit. 

    Have a magical time!
