    How does FastPass+ work for guests just visiting a park for the day and won't be staying on Disney property? Would Magic Bands be available? Thank you! ºOº

    Hi Jennifer!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! FastPass+ reservations are a great way to enjoy some of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World Resort that are on your "must-do list" while reducing your time waiting in the queue. Day Guests can begin making their FastPass+ reservations beginning 30 days in advance as long as they have valid theme park tickets linked to their My Disney Experience account. All of your FastPass+ reservations can be made in the My Disney Experience website or mobile app. I love being able to use the mobile app during my trip to keep track of all of my FastPass+ reservations and plans for the day!

    If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can purchase solid color MagicBands on the Disney Store website or you can wait until you get to the theme parks to purchase retail MagicBands with designs of your favorite Disney Character. Check out the Disney Parks Blog to get an idea of the latest MagicBand releases to see what may be available during your trip. If you choose to not purchase MagicBands for your family, you will receive admission cards that will hold both your park admission tickets and your FastPass+ reservations.

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
