    Is the B resort and spa in the Disney Springs area considered an official Disney hotel? Meaning if I were to purchase a vacation package through them, would I be able to use my magic bands or is it considered a gateway hotel?

    Hi Jessica,

    Thank you for dropping by planDisney with a great question! 

    The good news about MagicBands is that regardless of where you stay, you can use some of the features. Only Guests staying at Disney Resorts Collection hotels can use MagicBands to unlock room doors and to charge purchases to their room accounts. Since you are staying at a select resort hotel that is not part of the Disney Resorts Collection, you will be able to use your MagicBands for park entry and to link your Disney PhotoPass Photos when exiting an attraction or taking a photo with a Disney PhotoPass photographer. 

    My family adores MagicBands, so we always use them. Know also that you can now use Disney MagicMobile service with your mobile device. This service will allow you to use your mobile device for park entry as long as you have valid theme park admission linked and MagicMobile passes created. We are super excited to now have this option as well.

    As you plan for your visit, make sure that you have Disney Park Pass system reservations for each day that you have valid theme park admission. I also highly recommend making advanced dining reservations 60-days prior to arrival if you have not done so already. On our last visit, we had dining reservations for almost all of our meals and it truly felt like our vacation was hassle free. 

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience Mobile App so that you can also use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering and Mobile Dine Check-in. We loved being able to check in for our dining reservations while walking to the restaurants. And finally, keep your eye on the operational updates since policies and procedures could change.

    Jessica, I do hope you still order MagicBands. When our MagicBand box arrives in the mail, lots of dancing occurs. We cannot wait to welcome you to a world of magic!

    Magic and memories,
