    DVC members and AP holders. Coming in April, but staying offsite for the 1st time. Traveling with another family. Will we be able to use FP+? Magic bands? Will we be able to have the same FP's? How does this work?

    Howdy Debbie!

    I'm hesitant to answer your question simply because the answer I'm going to give you could change...and I am hopeful that it will.

    At this time in the testing, you have to be staying on property to have access to MagicBands/FastPass+.  Because of this, at this time, you are not able to make FastPass+ selections.  However, Disney is in the process of potentially expanding MyMagic+ to include Annual Passholders.  

    With April being a few months away, you might be able to enjoy the benefits of MyMagic+ and have the opportunity to link your accounts and enjoy FastPass+ selections with the other family.  

    I just spoke with a Cast Member and she told me that updates will be sent out to Annual Passholders via email and other media outlets.  Stay tuned....

    If you have any other questions regarding MyMagic+, you can speak with a Cast Member at My Disney Experience and Family & Friends List at (407) 939-4357.

    While there are no guarantees, this is a very dynamic time for everyone involved with this amazing technology.  I'm thinking happy thoughts and am hopeful that you will be able to experience MyMagic+ during your April 2014 vacation.

    Have a magical day!
