    I have a split stay trip coming up. I have two sets of magic bands that are "orderable". Do I need both sets? Will the one set work for both separate reservations?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christine! With your Walt Disney World Resort vacation coming up next month, now's the best time to nail down some of those final details, like choosing and personalizing your MagicBands.

    It's hard for me to even remember a time before MagicBands! It's so convenient to be able to unlock your Resort Hotel room, enter the theme parks, and check in to use a FastPass+ all with a simple touch. A MagicBand is included for each guest when you stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, but since you have two reservations, you will be receiving two sets of them in the mail. Go ahead and choose a color and customize each of them, because they can both be used for the entirety of your trip. Both MagicBands that you receive for this vacation, as well as any working MagicBands connected to your My Disney Experience account that you've received or purchased on any previous visits, can be worn and used interchangeably. I like to choose a new color each time I book a stay at a Resort Hotel, and I'll also bring along the MagicBands I've collected from previous vacations so I have a few different colors to choose from while I'm there!

    There are so many MagicBand options for you to choose from once you get to Walt Disney World Resort as well if you want to have one to represent your favorite Disney character! They can be found at merchandise locations at all the theme parks, but I've always found a really good selection at Celebrity 5&10 at Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    Have a magical day, Christine!
