    What are the fast passes? And what is a magic band? Please help!

    Hi Diana!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    MagicBands are part of a new system at the Walt Disney World Resort which basically allows you to travel lighter and more efficiently. The MagicBand allows you unlock the door of your Disney Resort hotel room, enter theme and water parks (with valid admission), check in at FastPass+ entrances, connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account and charge food and merchandise purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room (only available during your hotel stay).You can obtain them two ways, obtaining them free if you are staying at a Disney Resort or by purchasing them. 

    The FastPass+ service allows you to reserve times to visit certain attractions and essentially by passing the stand-by lines. In order to use the service, you first have to sign up for your My Disney Experience Account. Be sure to link your resort reservation (if applicable) and your tickets to your account. Once that is done, you will be able to make three FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance to your arrival date. If you are staying at a Disney Resort, you will be able to make selections 60 days in advance. For more information, please visit this page: FastPass+.

    Did you know?: The Walt Disney World Resort has some great offers on Disney Resort Rooms! For more information, please visit this page: Special Offers and Deals.
    It has been a real pleasure assisting you! If there are any other questions you may have, please feel free to send them my way!
