    Have room resv & AP vouchers for Apr '16 trip. Will be ordering mag bands soon. If I decide to purchase a band at resort (want a purple one!) do they work the same as ones ordered, will they still have tickets, charging priv and open room doors?

    Hi Lynn!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We truly enjoy assisting you with your planning! Ever since MagicBands were introduced, I have coveted a purple one! You have excellent taste! When you buy a MagicBand at the Disney Parks, you can ask them to activate it for you. It will have your tickets associated with it. However, in order to have it open your room door or to activate it for charging privileges, you must visit Guest Services at your resort and they can make your new purple one the active one (for resort use).

    It has been a pleasure assisting you Lynn and hope to hear again from you soon!

    Happy Planning!
