    Hello, We always stay onsite as it is always magical. We have friends that have invited us to go with them and stay in their time share. They need our help showing them around. We have magic bands from last fall. How can we use them staying offsite?

    Welcome Home, Lisa!

    Thank you for visiting us and for sending us your awesome question about MagicBands. I hope that I can help make your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning a whole lot easier!

    Staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel is definitely magical, but your vacation should still be just as magical even if you are staying offsite. I know you will be a great guide for your friends traveling “around the World”!

    You will still be able to use your MagicBands even if you are staying offsite. Once you have linked your valid Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets to your Disney Account, you will be a able to use your MagicBands to enter theme and water parks, check in to your FastPass+ selections and connect Disney PhotoPass pictures to your account. You will not be able to make purchases with your MagicBand, as you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel.

    Lisa, I hope I have helped answer your question. If you have any more questions about MagicBands or need any further clarification before your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again. We are always here to help sprinkled your vacation with some extra Pixie Dust!

    Wishing you an Unforgettable Vacation,
