    if you stay at contemporary is bands free or do you have to buy them


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    My family and I just stayed at Disney's Contemporary Resort for Spring Break, and we had an amazing time! We loved the Incredibles-themed decor of the rooms, and watching the monorail glide through the lobby never got old.

    If you stay at the Contemporary or other Disney Resort Collection hotels, the MagicBand+ bands are not free, but you can purchase them ahead of your stay for a significant discount. When you are in your My Disney Experience account you will see the option to purchase bands ahead of time, and the selection of styles is quite extensive.

    BONUS TIP #1
    I would strongly recommend you get a MagicBand+ for each person in your party. Some of the interactive features can be a lot of fun like using them to participate in the Batuu Bounty Hunters quest in Disney's Hollywood Studios. All the other features, like keyless room entry, charging capabilities, and ticket media access, also are wonderful conveniences.

    BONUS TIP #2
    Pairing your new MagicBand+ to your account could not be easier. Just make sure you have the My Disney Experience App installed on your smartphone, and you will see it offers some simple steps on how to pair the band to your account, as well as how to personalize your settings.

    BONUS TIP #3
    Did you know that from the Contemporary you can walk to the Magic Kingdom? This short 1/2 mile (3/4 km) walk gets you in the magic quickly!

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
