Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- 9/14, 18 days off property, 3 AoA. Will our 21 day ticket (UK) link to kttw or magic band for last 3 days? How likely is it bands will be available to everyone by then? We pre order to avoid pick up wait time (early ADR), but guess bands won't mail to UK.

- Hi Katie! The Magic Band technology will continue to be in testing phases for the next few months. In this time things will be changing constantly and really almost daily. Disney is working on what is going to be best for all guests.
At this time only resort guests will receive the Magic Bands so I suggest you presume that on your last three days you will be enjoying this technology. If Disney cannot ship to your address you will be able to pick them up at your check in although they might be the standard gray color. I actually don't mind the gray as it goes with everything! For your first 18 days you would not be able to enjoy the Bands since you will not be resort guests. When arriving at the parks you would need to plan your day with either the legacy or old Fastpasses or possibly the new Fastpass+ if they have developed it for day guests at that time. There isn't any way of knowing where the testing or the program will be at that point.
Right now check in might take a bit longer due to the need to explain and check the Magic Bands for each member of your family so you should be sure and build that into your plan for the first day.
Just keep asking questions to the panel and we will try to keep you updated on the changes and news about the Magic Bands and Fastpass+.
