    We will be staying at the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace in June and have bought a 3-day ticket to the parks. We are entitled to fast passes, so I’ve already made my selections. Yay! Will we need to purchase magic bands or Will they be complimentary?

    Hi Rebecca,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you are just a few sleeps away from your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation! By staying at the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace, you will enjoy some fantastic benefits since it is a Disney Springs Area hotel. You were able to begin booking your FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance, so hopefully you were able to get reservations for all of the items on your "must-do" list. Plus during your vacation, you will be able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours to enjoy the theme parks with lighter crowds!

    While Guests of Disney Resort hotels receive complimentary MagicBands as they function as their room keys, Guests the Disney Springs Area hotels, which includes the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace, do not receive complimentary MagicBands. You will receive a card for your room key to use during your trip. You can choose to use admission cards for you theme park tickets or you can purchase MagicBands, which will allow you to use your theme park tickets and FastPass+ reservations and access your Memory Maker account with just the touch of your MagicBand.

    You can choose to purchase your MagicBands online before your trip or you can purchase them from one of the shops at the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels or Disney Springs during your trip. Be sure to check out the awesome graphic MagicBand options available to choose the perfect band for each member of your family!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you countdown the final sleeps until your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
