    We will purchase our tickets at a military base. Can we also order magic bands for these tickets? Ae we able to purchase Memory Maker at a military base? Celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary at the happiest place.

    Hi Paul,

    WOW! Congratulations on your Golden Anniversary and thank you for your military service. I am honored to play a small part in planning this incredible celebration.

    If you are planning to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel for your vacation, then you will receive complimentary MagicBands as one of the on-site benefits! You can even customize your MagicBand through your My Disney Experience Account by selected the MagicBands & Cards tab. These will be mailed to your home about two weeks before your arrival so that you may wear them on your flight and scan them to board Disney's Magical Express Motor Coach transportation from Orlando International Airport to Walt Disney World Resort. 

    If you will call an off-property location "home" during your vacation, you may still purchase retail MagicBands through the Shop Disney Parks Mobile App! Choose from a variety of characters and colors to suit your interests and wear it with pride. You will need to link these to your My Disney Experience Account in order to use them for theme park admission, but this step takes only a minute or two.

    Please keep in mind that you must make a quick stop at a convenient Guest Relations window at the entrance to any of the four theme parks to activate your 4-Day Military Promotional Ticket by showing an active duty or retired military ID.

    You will definitely want to purchase Memory Maker for access to all of your Disney PhotoPass pictures. You can add this incredible enhancement at the bottom of your My Disney Experience Account homepage.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
