    We will be staying at one of the disney value resorts. I just read that we will get complementary magic bands. Is this truth or should i plan on getting my own?

    Hello there, Hellen!

    Welcome back to planDisney. Thank you for stopping by again with another great question. We are thrilled to continue to help you plan magical memories for your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I am happy to hear you are considering taking advantage of the functionalities offered by a MagicBand during your stay. You can use it to enter the theme parks (with valid admission and a theme park reservation), link Disney PhotoPass content to your Disney account, redeem Disney Genie+ selections and individual Lightning Lane purchases, and more. Since you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you will also be able to use your MagicBand to open the door of your Guest room and charge purchases to your account during your stay.

    Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel do not receive complimentary MagicBands, however, they have the option of buying a MagicBand or MagicBand+ at special prices prior to their arrival. To check available options and make your purchase, sign in to your Disney account and visit My MagicBands and Cards. Please note that MagicBand and MagicBand+ purchases made 11 or more days before your check-in date will be shipped to your home. Purchases made 6-10 days prior to your arrival  will be shipped to your Disney Resort hotel and you can stop by Front Desk to pick your order up when you arrive for your vacation.

    I hope this information is helpful, Hellen. Come back to visit us soon if you have additional questions and have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    See ya real soon,
