Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- If we choose not to get the Magic Bands, can we still take advantage of the Fast Pass+ service? If so, how do you "check-in" for rides/attractions without the bands?

- Hi Jill! At this time you can choose not to wear your Magic Bands and they will give you cards to use for the parks that will have the same information on them as the bands. When you arrive let the resort cast members know you choose not to have the bands but still need the card as it will have to be your room key, park ticket, and fastpass+ access card. The card would be used as a band when you get to an attraction.
Just remember that you do not have to wear the bands on your wrists. Some guests are choosing to keep them in their pocket or purse or hang them from a lanyard type necklace. I found that I got used to wearing them after a day and the stiffness wore off. My hardest thing was that I kept thinking it was a watch on my wrist and kept checking for the time.....hey maybe that is something they can add for the future, a time piece!
