While English is the official language of Walt Disney World, it does not mean you have to be fluent to have a great time. There are thousands of international guests visiting Walt Disney World every day. Maps are available at Guest Services, and most restaurants will have menus in different languages available. Many cast members speak more than 1 language. Those who are bilingual have a tag on their badge to indicate what languages they speak.

It is a rubber band that goes on your wrist which contains Magic! Actually, they are not magical, but they are very clever. MagicBands contain a whole host of information about your stay.

We love MagicBands, but they might not be around much longer!
Need a souvenir? Why waste ride time? The shops near the entrance at all parks stay open for 1 hour after the park advertised closing time.
