Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I've been reading all the faq's and the blogs but I couldn't find the answer so I apologize if this was already asked but are ALL WDW resort guests now getting the Magic Band if tickets are purchased also? I'm looking at travel dates in August 2014.

- Hi Irene,
Yes, you are correct.
There had been a period where Magic Bands had been tested at just a few resorts. That time is over and now ALL guests at ALL the Disney-owned hotel will receive MagicBands at part of their reservation. The MagicBand will open your hotel room (no more plastic Key to the World cards). Additionally, you can choose to configure the MagicBand to charge food and merchandise to your room. If you link park tickets to your account, you can also use the MagicBand as your park admission medium. Resort guests who have linked tickets may make FastPass+ ride reservations up to 60 days in advance of their trip. It's a nice perk for resort guests.
Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
