    Do you have to purchase magic bands?

    Hi Kelli,

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question.  How exciting, you will be visiting during one of my favorite festivals, the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival!  Not only that, but your dates also coincide with the new TRON Lightcycle / Run grand opening. You are all set to make some Magical memories!

    One of the great things about visiting Walt Disney World are the many options you have to customize your visit.  You do not need to purchase a Disney band in order to visit the theme parks.  If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can stop by the front desk to get a Key to the World card which will allow you to enter the theme parks, access Lightning Lane entrances, open your Disney Resort hotel door, charge purchases to your Disney Resort hotel, and connect your PhotoPass photos.  You can also simply use your smart device and do all of the same things using My Disney Experience App and the Disney MobileMagic Service.  To be honest, I love using my mobile device and use it much more than any other method because it is the easiest and most convenient way for me to enjoy my Disney day.  I already use my mobile device for Mobile Food Ordering and many other things, so I just prefer the convenience of everything being in one place.

    I hope this answers your question, Kelli.  If you have any other questions about this or any other Disney vacation planning topic, please come back and visit us again here at planDisney.

    See Ya Real Soon,
