    We have wrist bands linked to our account from a trip a few years ago. We just made reservations for this year in July (without a hotel). Will we be sent new wristbands? We no longer have the old ones.

    Greetings and welcome to planDisney, Diana!

    We are thrilled to answer your first question and assist you as you plan a summer visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    It is not a secret that I am a big fan of MagicBands! They have convenient features that make visiting the Walt Disney World Resort easier and can unlock even more magic for Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Complimentary MagicBands are no longer offered to Disney Resort hotel Guests, but they are welcome to buy them in advance at special prices. If you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can purchase MagicBands before your vacation by visiting or shop for MagicBands at merchandise locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort upon arrival.

    Diana, I have a great tip if you decide not to use a MagicBand. Have you heard about Disney MagicMobile? This is a convenient service available for iPhone and Apple Watch users (coming soon to other smart devices) that allows Guests to enter theme parks and water parks by holding their iPhone or Apple Watch near an access point, just as they would do with a MagicBand or ticket card. After linking valid admission to your Disney account, use the My Disney Experience app to create a MagicMobile pass, add it to your Apple Wallet, and you will be ready to go! You are also welcome to stop by the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs or any will call window located at the entrance of the theme parks to retrieve ticket cards if you prefer not to use a MagicBand or Disney MobileMagic. In this case, be sure to bring a government-issued ID, a copy of the e-mail sent to you with the ticket confirmation number, and the credit card used for the purchase.

    I hope this information is helpful, Diana! Come back to visit us for more tips and advice and have a magical summer at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Disney wishes,
