    what are magic bands? Should I get one for the whole family or just my 4 year old (visiting for the first time)

    Hey Lourdes!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so happy to answer your question about MagicBands today. Congratulations on your first Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Your family must be so excited!

    MagicBands are “all-in-one” devices that allow Walt Disney World Resort Guests to access their My Disney Experience vacation choices and plans. MagicBands can help you travel lighter by allowing you to:

       Check in at FastPass+ entrances.
       Unlock the door of your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room.
       Enter Walt Disney World Resort theme parks and water parks (with a valid admission).
       Charge your food and merchandise purchases to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room.
       Connect your Disney PhotoPass photos and videos to your Account.

    I highly suggest you get MagicBands for your entire family. I especially recommend getting a MagicBand for the person in charge of your Disney account and/or the person making your vacation plans and choices. Everyone in your party will automatically receive a MagicBand if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel. If you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you may purchase a MagicBand online, on the Shop Disney Parks app or at select Walt Disney World Resort retail locations.

    Lourdes, if you have any more questions please do not hesitate to visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again. We are always happy to help you.
