    Hello we have our tickets and memory maker booked for our Christmas vacation to WDW. They will be shipped to us by 8thdec. Now I'm stuck on magic bands.. what are they? Where do I buy them? 

    Hi, Shenaz! The holiday season is upon us and your vacation is so close! I bet you can already smell the gingerbread popcorn. Before we chat about MagicBands, I want to encourage you to experience the Holidays Around the World festivities at Epcot. This very merry celebration includes storytellers and holiday tastes in each country's World Showcase pavilion, with each evening being highlighted by a rousing retelling of the Nativity Story by a celebrity narrator. The holiday magic is endless this time of year!

    Okay, back to MagicBands. You did not mention if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort or one of the area hotels. MagicBands are a complimentary provision for Guests staying at a Resort hotel. If you are staying at one, then head to the MagicBands and Cards section of My Disney Experience and you should see your MagicBand order there, provided you have linked your Resort reservation. If you are staying off property, you can still make use of this fun technology by purchasing them via the Disney Store or Shop Disney Parks app before your visit, or at many merchandise locations if you prefer to wait until your arrival. Linking your newly purchased MagicBands to your My Disney Experience account is very easy, but can be completed by any Guest Relations Cast Member if you need assistance. You will definitely want to link them so they can be used to access your tickets and FastPass+ selections.

    By the way, have you made those FastPass+ selections yet? If not, head on over and get those checked off your list! Come back and visit us if you would like some FastPass+ recommendations to make your visit extra jolly.
