    I am staying at the Walt Disney dolphin resort.I have linked my reservations, fast passes and dining reservations to my Disney app. I have purchased my tickets. Since I am staying at the dolphin I do not get a magic band is that correct

    Hi Barbara!

    You will love staying at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel during your upcoming vacation! It combines a perfect location along Disney's BoardWalk with comfortable accommodations and easy access to the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks and Disney Springs. My family stayed at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel a few years ago, which is a sister hotel to the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, and we loved being able to walk to Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and all of the dining and entertainment along Disney's BoardWalk.

    I'm glad to see that you have already taken advantage of My Disney Experience to link all of your reservations and your vacation itinerary is in good shape since you have already booked your FastPass+ reservations and dining reservations! Guests who are staying at one of the Disney Resort hotels will receive complimentary MagicBands for their vacation. Unfortunately, while the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel is located on Walt Disney World Resort property, it is not one of the official Disney Resort hotels, so you won't receive complimentary MagicBands for your trip.

    However, you can purchase MagicBands if you would like to use them during your vacation from the Disney Store online or one of the merchandise shops at Walt Disney World Resort. They will allow you to access your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with just the touch of your MagicBand once they are linked to your My Disney Experience account. In my opinion, MagicBands are one of my favorite additions to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation because it's so nice when everyone can hold their own tickets and FastPass+ reservations. I love that I don't have to distribute everyone's admission card before each theme park entrance and FastPass+ queue!

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app because it's the easiest way to link your MagicBands to your account and manage all of your vacation reservations during your trip. Also, let us know if we can help you again as your vacation approaches! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
