    If we are staying at Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace (Disney Springs) will magicbands work for our room at that hotel? We are debating if they are worth our 5 night (3 day to Disney World parks specifically, 1 to Universal ) vacation?

    Hi Abby!

    Thanks for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! So happy to hear that you have your plans ready for a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! While it is located close to the Walt Disney World Resort, specifically Disney Springs, the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace does not offer the complimentary MagicBands. While you can choose to purchase MagicBands and connect them to your My Disney Experience Account, these would only be useful for you to enter the parks (when linked with theme park tickets) and to use when returning for your FastPass+ selections, as you can tap in the FastPass touchpoint. If you decide to stay at a participating Disney Resort hotel, the MagicBands will also serve as a room key and will allow you to charge purchases to your room.

    Did you know?: During your visit, Epcot will be hosting its annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival! The different food kiosks are divine! Be sure to hop on to Disney's Skyliner and head over to Epcot to check it out!

    It has been a pleasure assisting you Abby! If I can help you with a fastpass+ recommendation or any other planning question, please do not hesitate to send me your questions!
