DISNEY VACATION TIPS #2

Going to Walt Disney World? Learn about MagicBands, how they work, and become familiar with the  My Disney Experience app BEFORE you get there!

You may be wondering, “What are MagicBands?” These amazing, colorful wristbands are an all-in-one device that you wear on your wrist during your vacation. There is a computer chip inside it which links all of your vacation information into one place.

Get your personalized MagicBands with any Walt Disney World Resort stay.

For example, it becomes your room key, park admission ticket, FastPass+ tickets, hotel room key plus you can use it to buy food and merchandise and keep track of your Memory Maker Photos. Think of all the time you will save not looking for everyone’s admission ticket, FastPass tickets, and room keys. And, your MagicBand is waterproof, so you can go to the pool without any worries!

MagicBands are free with any Walt Disney Resort stay. They work with the website and app called My Disney Experience. This is how you access your resort information, tickets, FastPass choices, dining reservations, and so much more!

My tip is once you have your reservations and tickets, you can go online before your vacation and start planning. Also, download the app and become familiar on how it works. Here, you can change FastPass times, add tickets, or just use it to personalize your daily schedule! It even has attraction wait times, showtimes, character times, and maps of all the Disney parks! Need to find the nearest bathroom? Check the app!
