    Hello. We have reservations for 6 nights at a Disney Springs hotel - the Hilton Doubletree. If we want to have Magic Bands can we purchase them, and if so can we link them to the Hilton Doubletree Disney Springs? Thank you

    Hi Claire!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're so glad that you found us hEAR, and thank you for sending this great Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question to us!

    MagicBands are a super cool piece of wearable tech that pack a lot of pixie dust. Most impressive is that no matter where you choose to spend the night during your stay, MagicBands will serve as a way to quickly access your Disney Theme Park Tickets, speedily redeem your FastPass+ attraction reservations, grab any PhotoPass photos taken of you on an attraction or with a Disney PhotoPass Photographer, and even link all photos others in your party scan to your group's Memory Maker photo package. I appreciate that instead of having to keep track of (and potentially lose) my physical park ticket, as well as the PhotoPass card guests are given in lieu of MagicBands, that everything is neatly kept together and accessible with a quick scan.

    Any friend of Mickey is more than welcome to purchase a MagicBand in advance of their vacation from But, you'll definitely find more choices in person at the various Walt Disney World Resort shops in the theme parks and also at Disney Springs. There are even a few really neat locations where you can personalize over 50 designs of MagicBands, one being D-Tech on Demand in Disney Springs.

    MagicBands are technically linked to your My Disney Experience Account, not directly to any one hotel. When you receive your band you'll be able to link it to your account immediately, even from your My Disney Experience Mobile App! And really neat, once linked, you're more than welcome to use your band on future visits to Mickey's Florida house!

    And do note for future visits to the Most Magical Place on Earth that MagicBands have a few more uses exclusively for guests who stay at a Disney Resort Hotel, such as serving as your room key and even being able to charge purchases back to the credit card on file to your room!

    I hope this helped to clEAR things up, Claire, and if you have any more vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
