    what does the fast bands do if your not staying at the resort do you just walk up to the fast pass lines?

    Welcome, Brad, to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    MagicBands can be used by any guests of all of the Walt Disney World theme parks. Even if you are staying off property, you can use a MagicBand to store your theme park tickets, PhotoPass pictures, and FastPass+ selections. 

    Every ticketed guest receives 3 FastPass+ per day, per park. These FastPass+ selections must either be linked to a MagicBand or an admission card and to make those selections a My Disney Experience account must be created for each ticketed guest. 

    You can purchase them online from the Disney Store or by using your Shop Disney mobile app. You can also find them at any gift shop at all 4 of the theme parks. 

    My family's first trip to Walt Disney World, we stayed at an Orlando area hotel, but we decided that we wanted to use MagicBands. I was able to find each member of the family a special MagicBand that had a picture of their favorite Disney character that they could sport around the parks. 

    If you decide not to purchase and use a MagicBand, you can still use the admission card that you receive at the ticket window. Admission cards are used just like MagicBands but aren't as easily accessible as a MagicBand. Just tapping your wrist at the Mickey touch-points is super easy, rather than having to search for your admission card every time you enter a FastPass+ attraction or show. 

    Brad, enjoy your time at Walt Disney World! If more questions come up, stop back by and visit with us again! We're always here to help!

    Happy planning!
