    Hello! We are purchasing our 4 day passes at the Shades of Green resort. Do we need magicbands?

    Hi Dawn!

    Shades of Green is a wonderful place for members of the U.S. Military and their families to stay when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort and just one of many benefits!  Along with the fantastic discount on tickets, there are also great rates on select Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Rooms and even an awesome price for Memory Maker!

    Although I love having my MagicBand with me during a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, you will not need one to enter the parks!  You will receive hard card tickets at Shades of Green that will allow you to enter the parks just like a MagicBand (with valid admission) would!

    That being said, MagicBands make it so easy to enter the parks, check in for your FastPass+ experiences, and link Disney PhotoPass Photos to your My Disney Experience account that I still highly recommend using them during your stay!  Even if you aren't staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can purchase MagicBands online in advance or once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort, or even use some from a previous trip!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
