    Are all tickets purchased for Disney World in form of magic band or do I have to purchase this too? Also, I have tickets from years ago will they be able to be added to a magic band.

    Hi Megan!

    Thanks for sending your questions to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! MagicBands are one of the best things ever introduced at the Walt Disney World Resort! You can obtain them two ways. Guests listed on a reservation at a Disney Resort will be obtaining them free as part of the booking. The other way would be purchasing the MagicBands via DisneyStore.com, Shop Parks App (available on your smartphone) or upon arrival at practically all shops within Walt Disney World Resort. If a guest is staying off-site, MagicBands will not be distributed as they are not required at the theme parks since the ticket cards serve the same purpose. Additionally, you can only link active tickets to your My Disney Experience Account which in turn links the tickets to the MagicBands.
    Did you know?: Guests now have a new option to create and personalize MagicBands at Walt Disney World Resort. The new MagicBand on Demand station is located inside the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. location near Space Mountain in Magic Kingdom Park. These can also be purchased at the D-Tech on Demand boutique at the Marketplace Co-Op in Disney Springs Marketplace. To view some of the options and for pricing information, please check out this page: Retail MagicBand on Demand.

     It has been a pleasure assisting you!
     Happy Planning!
