    If staying at a Walt Disney resort can I choose not to use my Magic band? Can I request a key card to open the door to my room, to enter the parks, for Fastpasses and for charging?

    Hi Jean, 

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel for assistance with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning! 

    Yes, you can opt to use an Admission Card instead of a MagicBand if you would prefer. The cards work in a similar fashion to the MagicBands, but they physically resemble a plastic credit card or driver’s license. Disney describes them as follows, "the cards are secure all-in-one devices that allow you to effortlessly access the plans and vacation choices that you’ve made with My Disney Experience."

    When you arrive at your Resort Hotel, simply inform the Cast Member that you would prefer a card instead of a MagicBand, and they will provide you with one. 

    Wishing you magical memories,
