10 Tips & Tricks for Using Disney’s Magic Bands

7 - Use your Magic Band for everything.

Your Magic Band is actually your access to your entire vacation package at Disney World. Back in the old days you needed your photo ID to enter your resort, a room key to access your resort room, and a theme park ticket to enjoy the attractions. Now, with a simple flick of the wrist you can have your band scanned by a guard at the gate, be given the green light to enter your resort room, and light up that electric Mickey (green, not blue!). Your Magic Band also gets you on the Magical Express, FastPass+, dining plan entitlements, resort room purchases, etc.  It is so convenient, since you can manage everything from your My Disney Experience account and link all of your reservations there so that all you need to have with are your Magic Bands. Now, I’m all for nostalgia and keeping some classics for future generations, but there’s no need to keep digging into my wallet for IDs, keys, and tickets.
