    We are going to Disney on December 7th through the 12th we are staying at Art of Animation for five nights We got the Hotel stay and park tickets as our package. My question is will we get the Magic bands or just the key cards....

    Hi Dolores,

    The new MagicBand technology is still in the testing phase, so I can't tell you officially if it will be ready for Art of Animation by the time of your visit. If you haven't already, I suggest signing up for My Disney Experience on the Disney website or downloading the app to your tablet or smartphone. That way, you will be ready if you get tapped for the MagicBands.

    I was part of the MagicBand testing last week at Pop Century and first found out that the bands would be available for my stay by clicking on "MagicBands and Cards" in the My Disney Experience app. It showed that I could customize the bands for my whole family for our visit. I later got an email and a letter from Walt Disney World inviting me to be part of the test. Those arrived about a month before my visit.

    The MagicBands worked great during our visit, and we enjoyed using the FastPass+ option to pre-select certain attractions.

    Sorry I can't be more definitive, but I will keep my fingers crossed for you. Please let me know if I offer any more help. Enjoy your stay!
