4 of us have magic bands but from 2015 so probably won't work on rides for photos/videos, the others don't, and with parking too it would be well worth it for us
Make sure it says USA in the corner , it may try to chuck you back on the uk site but just change it back . Pick hotel and 1 night with your dates m it should find the campsites for you . If you need help just shout x

as long as the magic band is linked to you, and the hotel reservation is also linked to you (same avatar on your MDE) then the answer is yes, since you *tap* the band to the reader. So your old magic bands will work *forever* for such operations

but, you don't really need a magic band for Magical Express. Just give them your name and they will find you in their system.
Magic Band just makes it a wee bit faster and add a bit of "magic"

Brilliant thank you, all booked, and for $75 it's great value considering we get 9 magic bands and the parking as well as the other benefits (though not sure what my 2 year old will need a magic band for!)

We did similar in 2015 but at a value hotel as there were only 4 of us, I hadn't come up with a way of doing it this time that was cost effective until I saw this
