    We are heading to Disney and want to purchase tickets ahead of time, is the fast pass included and do I purchase magic bands ahead of time, my hotel is a Disney resort but does not use the magic bands which is fine, but is it worth me getting them?

    Hi Elizabeth!

    I'm so happy you dropped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. All Guests of Disney Resort Hotels receive complimentary MagicBands except for those who stay at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel or the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. If you will be at one of these, you can still purchase MagicBands online or through the Shop Disney Parks App for your smartphone before you arrive. They are also available at oodles of places throughout Walt Disney World if you prefer to wait until you are there. I would definitely recommend using MagicBands, though...they are fantastic! And I like to have my MagicBands already purchased so I can get them all ready to use before our vacation even begins. Here's how you do that: create an account on My Disney Experience and link every part of your Walt Disney World vacation--Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPass+ choices and much, much more! Having everything linked to your MagicBand is a fantastic way to keep all your plans organized and close at hand. You will absolutely love them!

    Have a magical day!
