    DH and I will be in florida next month. Hoping to squeeze in a day at MK. Will not be.staying at Disney resort. How will magic bands change my planning? Can I still get fast passes? Will we get bands of just paper tickets? Thanks for your help

    Hi Margaret,

    I really hope that you will be able to squeeze a day at the Magic Kingdom during your stay at the Walt Disney World Resorts.

    As of January 2014, Magic Bands is only available to guest staying at the Walt Disney World Resorts. In addition, the original FastPass system is available at the Magic Kingdom.

    You will receive an RFID ticket which is similar to a credit card. This ticket can be used to make FastPass+ reservations for guests in the parks at the kiosks or to be used in the original FastPass machines. 

    For you, you will have only day of FastPasses and not be able to preplan those FastPasses. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
