    I have a res for July @ AKL and I’ve paid for the magic band upgrade. I’ve just booked another stay at dolphin resort for later this month. Will I be able to collect the magic band I’ve paid for AKL in July when I arrive in jan or do I need to buy another

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jennifer!

    I am happy to hEAR that you have just booked another visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. With a second Disney vacation planned for the summer, 2020 will definitely be a pixie dusted year for you!

    Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel is a beautiful hotel located in the Epcot area, within walking distance of this theme park, Disney’s BoardWalk and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Because the hotel is right in the middle of the magic, many visitors believe that it is a Disney Resort hotel when in fact it is not. Guests staying at Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel may enjoy FastPass+ planning up to 60 days prior to arrival and access to Extra Magic Hours and other benefits, but they do not receive complimentary MagicBands. 

    However, you are welcome to purchase a MagicBand upon arrival, link it to your Disney account, and use it to enter the theme parks and water parks (with valid admission), to redeem FastPass+ experiences, and to link all digital content captured by Disney PhotoPass to My Disney Experience. You will unfortunately not be able to pick up the MagicBand you purchased for your July visit because it will only be available at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge a couple of days prior to your arrival. I believe this gives you the perfect excuse to start a MagicBand collection, but you may also use the regular ticket card during this visit. To retrieve your cards, simply present your ticket voucher along with your passport at any Guest Relations location or will call ticket windows located at the entrance of the theme parks.

    Thank you so very much for reaching out to us once again, Jennifer! I hope you stop by real soon with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
