    We are staying at Dolphin Resort. Will we get magic bands?

    Hi Kimberly,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. I just visited the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and was really bowled over by the resort’s beauty and incredible location. I know you are going to love your stay there!

    At this time, Guests staying at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels do not receive complimentary MagicBands. You are of course welcome to purchase MagicBands, which will allow you to link your park tickets to your My Disney Experience account, enabling you to use your MagicBand to enter theme parks and access FastPass+ and PhotoPass services. Just be aware that you will not be able to enter your hotel room or charge purchases to your room using your MagicBand.  

    If you’d like to purchase MagicBands in advance, you can do so via ShopDisney or the Shop Disney Parks app, or you can wait and purchase MagicBands at your resort gift shop or the shops in the theme parks. The updside of purchasing MagicBands is the fabulous selection of colors, patterns, and character and attraction designs. Once the MagicBands are purchased, log in to your My Disney Experience account and link each MagicBand to your account. Kimberly, if you prefer not to purchase MagicBands for your party, you’ll be fine using your Park Ticket card, and it’s fun to attach it to a themed lanyard for extra flair (and security too).

    Enjoy your stay at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, and be sure to take advantage of your proximity to Disney's BoardWalk, as well as the lovely Friendship Boat service between Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
