    Hello! We are doing an unexpected one day trip to Magic Kingdom next month (our first!) and will be staying off property. Is it possible to utilize FastPass without buying Magic Bands? Thanks!

    Hi, Ashley!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 
    We are so happy to assist you with your Disney vacation!

    For our family's first Disney vacation, we stayed off property, too! At that time, we didn't know much about Magic Bands and decided not to use them! Now we can't live without a Magic Band! 

    Whenever you choose not to use a Magic Band, you will be given an admission card that works just like the Magic Band. Once you purchase your park tickets on the Walt Disney World website, an admission card will be mailed to you which has your park tickets stored on it. That admission card can be used just like a Magic Band. So, your park tickets, FastPass+ choices and any Advanced Dining Reservations will be stored on this admission card. 

    Similar to the Magic Band, the admission cards are so cute and can be used as a collectible item! Each card has a different Disney character! My kids enjoyed using them after our Disney vacation, pretending they were still on vacation! 

    I hope this helps! If you have more questions, please visit with us again soon! Have the most magical first visit!

    Happy planning!
