    Do you still receive complimentary magic bands with your Disney resort stay?

    Hi there, Jodie!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    MagicBands certainly make things convenient when you're visiting Walt Disney World Resort.  You can use your MagicBand to enter the theme parks (with valid park admission), and if you purchase Disney Genie+ service, your MagicBand can be used to check in at Lightning Lane entrances.  Disney Resorts Collection Hotel Guests can unlock their resort hotel room door with their MagicBand, and they can also use their MagicBand to charge purchases to their room.  It's so nice to be able to do all of these things with just a simple tap of your wrist! 

    Recently, our favorite theme park accessory experienced an upgrade with the introduction of MagicBand+.  MagicBand+ can help us with all of the things that previous versions of the MagicBands were used for.  Additionally, your MagicBand+ will unlock some fun interactive elements and activities throughout the Walt Disney World theme parks.  Be sure to use your MagicBand+ to check out the Batuu Bounty Hunters game at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, and watch as your MagicBand+ interacts with the various nighttime spectaculars throughout the theme parks.

    Although you won't receive a complimentary MagicBand+ with your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel stay, resort hotel Guests can order MagicBand+ at a discounted price.  To place your discounted MagicBand+ order, sign in to your My Disney Experience account on the Walt Disney World Resort website.  You'll want to hover over "My Disney Experience" in the menu bar at the top of your screen, then click on "My MagicBands and Cards."  If you have a resort hotel stay linked to your My Disney Experience account, you should see that stay listed with a blue "Get Started" button that you can click on to begin your MagicBand+ order.  Once you've completed your order, it will be shipped to your home.

    Jodie, if you have any other questions as you get ready for your trip, please stop by planDisney again.  We would love to help you have the most magical vacation ever!  See ya real soon!
