    We'll be staying at Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. Should we purchase Magic Bands? How much do they cost? Thanks!

    Hi Emily!

    Guests who stay the Walt Disney World Dolphin or Swan hotels will not receive complimentary MagicBands.    MagicBands can be purchased at many locations once you arrive at Walt Disney World and also before your trip at the Disney Store online.  The current price for a basic MagicBand that comes in seven different colors is $12.95.  Many stores at Walt Disney World will have special or limited edition MagicBands for sale that feature beloved characters and really cute designs.  These limited edition MagicBands do cost a little more, but they are really adorable.   

    Emily, you do not have to purchase a MagicBand in order to gain access to the theme parks, or Disney FastPass+ selections.   You can simply use your radio frequency enabled theme park ticket at any kiosk or touch point, the same way  other Guests would  use MagicBands.    It's totally up to your personal preference if you would like to purchase one or not.

    Thanks for stopping by today Emily, and please visit us again with any additional questions you may have.  We love to help out whenever we have the chance.

    Have a Magical Day,
