    What are the wrist bands?

    Hi Steven!

    I believe you're talking about MagicBands!  MagicBands are your key to the magic, and an easier way to vacation!  While at Walt Disney World, and even before you make it on property at Orlando International Airport--you'll use your MagicBands to access Disney's Magical Express!

    Your MagicBand will be used as your park admission, and to access your FastPass+ selections.  It will also be used as your room key for your Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  You can elect to associate a credit card to your MagicBand as well, and you'll be able to charge purchases to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room account utilizing the touch to pay feature.  Your Disney Dining Plan entitlements will also be linked to your MagicBand, and you'll use them at the end of each meal to redeem those entitlements.  

    For me, it means that I never reach into my pocket or wallet to take care of anything for my vacation, as it is all on my wrist!  Super convenient, and easy enough for my 4 year old to use to enter the parks!  

    Have a magical vacation!
