    I am going to stay at Disney hotel for 3 days with my family and can I get 4 magic bands in different colors at the hotel for free or no ?

    Hello Kenia, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question.

    There are so many perks that come with staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, like complimentary transportation, extra magic hours and complimentary MagicBands. This wearable piece of technology is linked to your My Disney Experience account. MagicBands are the key that unlocks the door to your resort hotel room, they give you admittance to the theme parks and you can use them to charge food and merchandise back to your room. You can also use them to redeem FastPass+ selections and add photos to your Memory Maker account.

    Once you have made your reservation at a select Disney Resort Hotel, you will be able to order your complimentary MagicBands in advance in My Disney Experience by clicking on the MagicBands and Cards tab. You will see the option to make your order and confirm your shipping address. You can customize the color and personalize each MagicBand with a name or nickname. Your MagicBands will be shipped to you at least 2 weeks prior to your arrival date. When your MagicBands arrive, in the mail, they will already be linked to your My Disney Experience account. If you do not customize your MagicBands in advance, you will all receive a gray MagicBand when you check-in to your resort. You can purchase additional MagicBands once you arrive, but you will need to link them to your accounts manually before you can use them.

    Remember to pack your MagicBands in a carry-on bag, if you are flying to the Walt Disney World Resort. You will need them to unlock the door to your resort hotel room and check-in with a Cast Member at Disney’s Magical Express Welcome Center.

    See ya real soon,
