    Mandy from NV Asked

    I feel kind of dumb asking this, but I HAVE to know. We are not annual pass holders, but can we purchase magic bands? It’s my families first time to WDW!!!!

    Hi Mandy,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can hear your excitement. First trip, first trip!!! Let the happy dancing begin.

    Thank you for bringing this excellent question to us. You can certainly order MagicBands from Shop Disney Parks Online but, if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will receive complimentary MagicBands. If you are using your MagicBands as a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest, you can create a PIN number and link a credit card in My Disney Experience, then use your MagicBand to charge to your resort hotel room account. We typically charge everything to our account using our MagicBands, then pay the entire bill when we checkout from the resort.  

    If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will be able to access some of the other MagicBand features that resort guests can also access. We use our MagicBands for park entrance (as long as we have valid theme park tickets linked in My Disney Experience) and for Fast Pass+ selections. If you have not done so already, create a My Disney Experience account. Once you have that account, you can link your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel confirmation number to that account as well as theme park tickets, Fast Pass+ selections and dining reservations

    Mandy, MagicBands are amazing. We love getting our package in the mail just before our trip!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
