    For our September 2018 family vacation, we are planning to stay at a WDW resort and I know you are issued a MagicBand. We are getting our park tickets through AAA. Are the MagicBands issued when you book your room or after you get your tickets?

    Hi Bridget,

    About a year to go for your magical vacation, but in a blink of an eye, you will be having so much fun at Walt Disney World Resort!

    One of the many benefits for staying at a Disney Resort hotel is each Guest receives a MagicBand. They will be your keys to your room, and also carry your Theme Park Tickets and FastPass+ reservations. And you may even be able to use them to charge food and merchandise to your room account. You may customize them at any time, but they will ship to you a few weeks before arrival. Just link your Tickets to your My Disney Experience account once you purchase them.

    One last tip: you may want to consider a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, which includes Theme Park Tickets and the only way to add a Dining Plan. Happy planning!
