    When traveling with a school group next May, we will be purchasing our theme park tickets separately (through Disney Youth) from our Disney hotel reservations. Will my students be issued Magic Bands? Could their theme park tickets be added to those bands?

    Hi, Jill!

    Great question!

    I spoke with a Cast Member on your behalf this morning, and was told that if your students are issued MagicBands, you will be able to have your tickets purchased through Disney Youth added onto those Bands. The very helpful CM I spoke with checked with the team that assists Guests with MagicBands upon Guest arrival at the parks; at this time, we don't know if these tickets will be able to be added onto a MagicBand prior to your arrival in Walt Disney World or if they will be added once you are on property, but they will be able to be added one way or another.

    As testing of MyMagic+ continues, keep your eyes and ears open for more information about the expanded roll-out of this exciting new technology. I'm sure your students will love all of the wonderful additions to Walt Disney World next year; what a fantastic time to visit!

    Send more questions as you think of them, Jill. I love to help!
