Family watching parade

    Jennifer from OH Asked

    My son is traveling with our school band and staying off site with his band program. We are flying in and staying at a Disney hotel with our daughter. Can I get the magic band for him to add to our pictures and have room charge access in case of need?

    Hello Jennifer, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am thrilled that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort soon. I remember watching my daughter perform with her high school band in the Magic Kingdom and it was one of the most magical memories for us. Your family will create amazing memories that will last a lifetime.

    As a resort guest, you and the other members of your family staying with you will be able to take full advantage of your complimentary MagicBands. Besides unlocking the door to your resort hotel room, you will be able to charge merchandise and food purchases to your room, enter water and theme parks with valid admission tickets, check in at FastPass+ entrances and link all of your Disney PhotoPass images to your account. You will want to make sure that everyone in your travel party has linked their My Disney Experience accounts together to capture all those memorable PhotoPass moments. 

    Since your son will not be staying on property, you would need to purchase a MagicBand for him prior to his arrival. There are a number of basic, special MagicBands available on the Shop Disney Parks app or online.  Make sure you have linked the band to his My Disney Experience account and that your son is also on your family and friends list. This will allow you to capture all of his photos as well. Remind him to have his MagicBand scanned by the PhotoPass Photographer. Only guests staying at the Walt Disney World resort can enjoy the privilege of charging purchases back to your room. Disney Gift Cards can be used throughout the entire resort for food and merchandise purchases.

    See ya real soon,
