    I am thinking of getting a magic band, but members of my party aren't interested in them, can they get a key to the world card instead? We will be heading to Disney World in just over 2 weeks, so would it be best to get a magic band when we arrive?

    Heigh-ho, Nicole! Welcome to planDisney.

    Magic Mirror on the wall, who is the luckiest of them all? It’s YOU because you’re going to The Most Magical Place on Earth so very soon! 

    I completely relate to your question and am familiar with this predicament. When I travel with my extended family, I make a spreadsheet to remember everyone’s preferences. From dining options to figuring out which method everyone will use with their valid admission into the theme parks, I like to keep a tab on it all! 

    Nicole, you’re welcome to have some Guests in your party using their hard tickets while you use your MagicBand or MagicBand+. Once you purchase your MagicBand, you would have to link it to your My Disney Experience account before entering the theme parks, and it should work just fine. 

     As for the rest of the members of your party, they are welcome to use the physical tickets. These can be picked up at any ticket windows located at all theme parks and the Guest Relations located at Disney Springs. While picking up the tickets, please have your order confirmation number, photo identification, and the credit card you used to make your purchase.

    Have an enchanting visit, Nicole!
