    We were prompted to purchase magic bands, but it also stated that we would receive complementary bands. I would prefer not to purchase if we get them for free. help!

    Howdy Tara!

    Welcome back to planDisney!  Picking out your favorite MagicBand to enjoy throughout your vacation is always so much fun!  Thank you for stopping by to share this great question with us!

    Your vacation to “The Most Magical Place on Earth” is “Just Around the Riverbend!”  As you continue to put your final touches on your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, I recommend adding MagicBands to your vacation experience!  Currently, you will need to purchase your MagicBands, but if you would rather not pay for this feature, you can opt for a Key to the World Card for free!  With your MagicBand or Key to the World Card and My Disney Experience, you will have everything at your fingertips!

    If you decide to purchase a MagicBand, I recommend checking the options on your My Disney Experience and shopDisney!  You will find a large variety of MagicBands at shopDisney!  I have a few that I have my eye on!  If you find a MagicBand that you love, I recommend purchasing it as soon as possible.  MagicBands are changing all the time on the My Disney Experience mobile app and at shopDisney.  So if you find a MagicBand that is “Practically Perfect” for you, I would not hesitate to purchase it!

    As you continue to plan your visit to Neverland, check the Disney Parks Blog to stay informed of everything to see and do during your visit!  As “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” continues, if you have any more questions, please come back to planDisney!  We look forward to helping you with your future planning questions to ensure that your vacation will be unforgettable, Tara!

    See Ya Real Soon,
