    If we have wristbands for disney world vacation both before a cruise and after, do we use the same wristbands both before and after the cruise since it will be a diff room? we are doing 10 day passes for the entire length of stay that will be on bands

    Hey there Marjorie! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    MagicBands are not specific to a Walt Disney World resort but can be used for any and all visits, when staying on or off property. MagicBands are linked to your My Disney Experience not to a reservation specifically. 

    Since you will have two separate resort reservations, you will be given the option to accept or decline the complimentary MagicBands that come with each reservation. If you want to use the MagicBands that will come with the reservation before your Disney cruise, you can decline the complimentary MagicBands that comes along with the resort reservation after your Disney cruise. 

    You could also decline both complimentary MagicBands and use bands from a previous trip or purchase new ones from the shopDisney website or mobile app. The complimentary MagicBands that you will receive are available in solid colors, where those for purchase on the shopDisney website have some of your favorite Disney characters on them.

    Remember that your MagicBands will give you access into the theme parks, the FastPass+ lines, store your Photo Pass pictures, and make purchases if you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort. 

    Have the most magical time, Marjorie! Please visit with us again if you have more Disney planning questions. Oh and enjoy your cruise too!
