    hello, do the value resorts include magic disney band? or do I need to buy them separately? Thank you

    Hiya, Berta! Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for stopping by with your question. I'd love to help you out today!

    Unfortunately, MagicBands and MagicBand+ devices are no longer included with Guests' Walt Disney World Resort vacation packages or room only reservations at Disney Resorts Collection hotels. This rule applies to all Value, Moderate, and Deluxe Resorts within the collection, so you will need to purchase your bands separately.

    Berta, since you're traveling internationally, you won't be able to take advantage of any pre-arrival discounts either, but don't worry! You'll be able to purchase your MagicBands or MagicBand+ devices in person at your Resort hotel's gift shop, Disney Springs, or any of the four Theme Parks. With hundreds of designs to choose from, I'm sure you'll find the perfect one for you and your entire group!

    Once you've picked out your favorites, my advice would be to ask the Cast Member who helped you with the transaction to assist you in linking them to your My Disney Experience accounts. After you've linked them, you'll be able to head straight to the Theme Parks without stopping by the ticketing booths! All you need to do is tap your bands to the Mickey turnstiles at the entrance and scan into the park. It's about as easy as Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!

    I hope that my answer has helped clarify things for you, Berta. If you have any other questions in English or in Spanish, you know just where to find us! See you real soon, my friend.

    Warm hugs,

    Ana Paula
