    We are staying at the Coronado springs hotel in sept . Do we get complementary magic bands with the booking

    Hello Jane! You are going to be staying at one of my favorite hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection! Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort has excellent dining options, a great layout for jogging or walking, and such a fun pool! I think you’re going to have a magical vacation!

    MagicBands are a great Walt Disney World Resort vacation accessory! I love the convenience that they provide! A MagicBand can be used as your resort room key, making charges, park admission (with linked admission tickets), and capturing images of you throughout the Disney Parks using Disney PhotoPass!

    MagicBands are no longer included with a Walt Disney World Resort vacation booking. Guests who are interested in MagicBands can purchase them at their resort hotel (including Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort), in the Disney theme parks, or at Once you purchase your band, you can automatically link it to your My Disney Experience account. Guests are also welcome to use a MagicBand from a previous vacation. MagicBands usually have a reliable battery life of up to two years, but many Guests report using MagicBands from even four or five years ago! Of course, the new MagicBand+ is rechargeable which is a very nice feature!

    Jane, MagicBands (and MagicBand+) can’t be shipped internationally, so you would need to wait until you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort to purchase your bands at the hotel or in one of the theme parks. As I mentioned, they can be linked to your My Disney Experience account within three to five minutes of removing them from the packaging.

    Have fun picking out the best MagicBand for you! There are so many options from which you can choose! I just visited with my brand new The Lion King MagicBand+! It was so cool visiting with all of the expanded features of a MagicBand+. They are incredibly interactive with the parks and attractions!

    Dreams do come true!
