    Do you receive magic bands if you stay at the Wyndham or do you have to purchase and link to your tickets? Thanks!!

    Hi, Brianna!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I'm so glad to hEAR that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort soon!  

    Complimentary MagicBands are just one of the many benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  You will not receive complimentary MagicBands when staying at one of the Disney Springs Area Resorts such as the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista.  While you can certainly visit the Walt Disney World theme parks without MagicBands, I think it is still a great idea to purchase them.

    MagicBands can be purchased online at shopDisney or at many retail locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.  Using the ID code found on the back of your purchased MagicBand, you can link your MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account using the My Disney Experience mobile app.  Although you will not be able to use your MagicBand to charge purchases to your hotel room as Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests can, you will be able to use your MagicBand to access all of the information in your My Disney Experience account.

    With valid theme park admission, your MagicBand will allow you to gain entry at the Walt Disney World theme parks.  You will also be able to use your MagicBand to access your selected FastPass+ attractions.  Your MagicBand will come in handy for linking your Disney PhotoPass Service pictures to your My Disney Experience account.  Additionally, there are a few attractions that have photos or videos that can only be accessed if you are wearing a MagicBand while riding.  I think you will love the level of convenience that MagicBands add to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    See ya real soon!
