    Hello, I have my theme park passes in forms of cards for all 5 of my family members. How do I get everyone the wrist bands? Our first day at Disney is October 4 so its soon. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hello, Katarzyna! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Only a few more days until your family heads to the Walt Disney World Resort! I bet everyone is getting super excited. After all, it won't be long now until you're walking down Main Street, U.S.A., with the spires of Cinderella Castle rising in the distance!

    Katarzyna, since you have Admission Cards, you're actually good to go. You don't really need MagicBands if you choose not to purchase them. But they are really fun, so if you'd like to pick some up for your family, I'm more than happy to help!

    Guests who are staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can buy MagicBands for a discounted price before their vacation even begins! You can order bands up to 11 days in advance to be delivered to your home, or 6 days in advance to pick them up at your Resort hotel, so you still have just enough time to place an order. Hop into your My Disney Experience account and look under "My MagicBands and Cards" and follow the prompts to customize and order your family's MagicBands. 

    If you're staying at an outside hotel this time around, you can buy MagicBands when you arrive. You can find them in almost any retail shop in the theme parks, and there are lots of designs to choose from. That way, your family members can select a MagicBand that shows off their unique personality! Once you purchase your MagicBands, just link them to your My Disney Experience account to activate them. The Cast Member at the register can help you link your bands if you're having trouble.

    After they're linked, use your MagicBands to enter the theme parks and scan any Disney PhotoPass photos you take around the Walt Disney World Resort. You won't be able to use them for purchases unless you're staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, but you can still have a lot of fun with them!

    MagicBands are also available on shopDisney.com, but they probably wouldn't arrive in time for this visit. Something to keep in mind for your next Walt Disney World vacation!

    I hope this helps you enjoy the theme parks in style with your MagicBands, Katarzyna! Have a magical vacation, and please come see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
