    If staying in a WDW resort are magic bands included? If not, does disney resort guests get a discount on the price?

    Hello there, Tracy!

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to planDisney! Thank you for sharing your question with us. We are thrilled to help you plan a pixie-dusted Walt Disney World Resort holiday!

    I am a big fan of MagicBands and always use one while visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth. Guests can use their MagicBands to enter the theme parks and water parks (with valid admission), redeem Disney Genie+ experiences, and link Disney PhotoPass content to My Disney Experience. In addition, guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can also use their MagicBands to open the door of their Guest room and charge food and merchandise purchases to their room account during their stay.

    MagicBands are not included with a Disney Resort hotel reservation. Still, as a Guest visiting the United Kingdom, you can purchase one upon arrival at the Walt Disney World Resort. You will find MagicBands at several merchandise locations at the theme parks, Disney Springs, and even at the shop at your Disney Resort hotel. I enjoy stopping by World of Disney store at Disney Springs to check out their MagicBand selection. Disney Resorts Collection Guests do not get discounts to purchase MagicBands, but if you are an Annual Passholder, your passholder discount will be applied at checkout.

    planDisney tip: If you decide not to purchase a MagicBand, you can stop by Front Desk at your Disney Resort hotel and request a Key to the World card, or you can create a Disney MagicMobile pass via the My Disney Experience app, link it to your digital wallet and use your mobile device to enter the theme parks.

    I hope this information is helpful, Tracy. Come back to visit us real soon if you have additional questions, we are delighted to help!

    Best magical wishes,
