    Staying at art of animation on Jan 5. Do you have to buy magic bands or are they provided??

    Hi Debbie, and thank you for visiting planDisney!

    An amazing, memory-making Walt Disney World Resort stay on the horizon? Now, that is what I call fun! Of course, staying at the perfectly themed Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will only enhance your stay! MagicBand+ has become a staple for all of our Walt Disney World Resort vacations because it is so convenient to have handy. 

    If you want access to MagicBand+, you must purchase them before your arrival or when you arrive. As a guest of a Disney Resort hotel, you can purchase a customized MaicBand+ through My Disney Experience at a special pre-arrival rate. If you do not want to purchase a MagicBand+, you can always utilize Disney MagicMobile Service and save the digital card to your digital wallet on your smartphone. In addition, you can request a key card when you arrive. The choice is yours. 

    We will be here if you have additional questions during this planning phase of your vacation. 

    Have a magical experience!
