    Hi, my family and I are going to the parks for the very first time. We have gotten our magic bands and made a meal plan and fast pass reservations. Is all of that info stored on the band or do we have to print off tickets or vouchers somewhere?

    Hi Amanda,

    It sounds like you have everything in order for your first Walt Disney World vacation! Let me help you with how your MagicBands will work for you on your magical vacation.

    You are correct that your Dining Plan entitlements and your Disney FastPass+ selections are linked to your MagicBand. The real hub for this is your My Disney Experience account. Your My Disney Experience account holds your information such as your tickets and Disney FastPass+ selections. Your MagicBand is also linked to your My Disney Experience account and can thus access all of that information. I am assuming based on your question that you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel. In this case, your MagicBand will also work for entrance to your resort room, and you can link a credit card to it for purchases throughout Walt Disney World! One of my favorite uses of a MagicBand is at the pool at my resort. I can use my MagicBand for purchases at the pool food locations and use it to access my resort room when I am done. It is helpful that I do not have to carry anything extra because my swimsuits do not have pockets!

    I suggest that if you are able, download the My Disney Experience mobile app. This app will allow you to access your My Disney Experience account easily while you are at Walt Disney World, and has great real-time information such as wait times for attractions and also offers the ability to make more Disney FastPass+ selections once you have used your pre-selected ones for that day.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Amanda. Please do let us know if you have any further questions!
