    We are staying under a friends dvc points, we got our tickets and they are cards. Will we be able to get magic bands too?

    Hi Christine,

    You must be so excited about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation at one of the "home-away-from-home" Disney Vacation Club Resorts. You do not mention where you will be staying, but having personally stayed at all of the Disney Vacation Club Resorts at Walt Disney World, I can assure you that you are in for a treat as all of these Resorts are so very special.

    Once your friend who is a Disney Vacation Club member makes your Resort reservation, they will be given a "Travel Plan" or confirmation number. If you haven't already done so, please create individual My Disney Experience accounts for each member of your party, and then use your Travel Plan number to "link" the reservation to your My Disney Experience account. At that point you will then be able to order your complimentary Magic Bands which will be mailed to you shortly before your stay. 

    You mention that you already have your Walt Disney World Resort park tickets, and that is great! Be sure to also link your tickets to your My Disney Experience accounts. Once your park tickets and Resort reservation are linked to your My Disney Experience account, you will then be able to start making FastPass+ selections 60 days prior to your stay. You may also want to download the handy My Disney Experience mobile app which allows you book and keep track of all of your dining and FastPass reservations while on the go.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
