    We just purchased the 4 Day Discovery Disney tickets. Do we get one of those bands? What exactly are those bands for? If we stay at one of the Disney resorts, do they all have shuttles and do you get in the parks earlier? Thank you

    Hi Trevor,

    The Discover Disney ticket is a great, economical way for Florida residents to explore Walt Disney World. I'm happy to help you navigate planning your visit.

    MagicBands are wristbands that link to your tickets, FastPass+ reservations, your resort room and more. They are provided free to guests staying at Walt Disney World resorts or are available for purchase at the Disney Store, the Shop Disney Parks app or in most gift shops at Walt Disney World. The MagicBands are linked to your My Disney Experience account, where you can manage all details of your visit, including dining reservations.

    All Walt Disney World resorts do provide free parking for guests who stay there and free access to Walt Disney World transportation -- by bus, monorail and water taxi. Transportation runs continuously. Resort guests also have access to Extra Magic Hours, extended hours either early in the morning or late at night. You'll find the days and times of Extra Magic Hours for each park on the parks schedule.

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Trevor.  Please check back again if you need more information or recommendations on dining, resorts or rides and attractions. Enjoy!
