    two questions: first I’m getting a one day, one park pass. Will I get a magic band to use (and link to my Disney account? Also can I use the shuttle from Disney Springs to Grand Floridian even if I’m not a guest but friends are? I’m a FL resident

    Hi, Danielle! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your questions! MagicBands are such wonderful accessories that bring lots of magic to our Walt Disney World Resort visits. We can use them to link our Disney PhotoPass pictures and access our tickets and FastPass+ selections. Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel can use them to enter their Disney Resort Hotel guest room and pay for purchases at select dining and merchandise locations. They definitely add a bit of magical convenience to your day! At this time, only guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel will receive complimentary MagicBands as part of their stay. However, you are welcome to purchase one in advance or as soon as you arrive and link it to your My Disney Experience account. When you get it linked to the same account that holds your Disney Theme Park Ticket, then you will be able to tap it to enter the park and FastPass+ queues. If you have trouble linking it, just stop by any Guest Relations location and a Cast Member will be able to assist you.

    Complimentary transportation is provided throughout Walt Disney World Resort for all guests to use during their visit. There is a Disney bus that runs from Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to Disney Springs throughout the day, beginning usually around 10:00 a.m. You are welcome to hop aboard to travel over to that resort and visit your friends. This is such a lovely resort, one of my older daughter's favorites! If you get a chance, I highly recommend the afternoon tea service at the Garden View Tea Room. It is the perfect spot to sit and catch up with your friend!

    Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions!
