    I am staying at the Swan, they do not give magic bands, do we need them?

    Hi there, Jacqueline! We're so happy to have you visit with us again!

    Magicbands are not required during your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World. While staying at The Swan, they will give you a key to enter your room. For your theme park tickets, FastPass+ selections, and Photopass pictures you can use an Admission Card. 

    The Admission Card is used just like a MagicBand except it won't give you access to enter your hotel room. You should receive an Admission Card for each ticket purchased. If these did not arrive as magic mail, you can get one from any theme park entrance at Guest Relations or concierge in The Swan hotel lobby. 

    You can also purchase MagicBands from ShopDisney online or the mobile app and have them with you upon arrival to The Swan or you can find all of your favorite Disney character MagicBands around Walt Disney World. If you decide to wait and buy a MagicBand once you get on property, any Cast Member can assist you with linking it to your My Disney Experience account for immediate use. 

    Have a magical time, Jacqueline! If you have more questions, please feel free to visit with us again!
