    I am staying at the Dolphin, does this mean I cannot preorder magic bands?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Amanda, and welcome to planDisney. I am so glad you are here because later this month you are staying at the iconic Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort. I was there two weeks ago with a fantastic theme park view. WOW! I have stayed at both the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts many times and find their location to be practically perfect in every way.

    The Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort is within the Walt Disney World Resort property not owned by Disney but by Marriott. You are able to have many amazing benefits including both Early Theme Park EntryExtended Evening Theme Park Hours, and bus service to the theme parks. Some of the benefits that are exclusive to Disney Resorts Collection hotel Guests include pre-ordering MagicBands with your Disney hotel reservation, charging Theme Park food and merchandise to their Resort portfolio using a MagicBand, and opening their hotel door. Do not be discouraged, you may order a MagicBand through shopDisney or buy one when you arrive. You are not losing any time and you will have a larger selection once you are on the property. Every store seems to carry a selection of MagicBands including locations at Disney Springs

    planDisney Pro Tip: We have timed it. The fasted way to get to Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT is by walking. We raced the water taxis and won. The walk is easy and very relaxing.

    Amanda, please write me back directly with any follow-up questions to help plan your "oh my gosh it's almost here" Disney vacation.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
