    Donna from GA Asked

    My husband, grandson and myself have tickets in hand for a visit the weekend of Oct. 8th. Unfortunately we aren't staying on property this time. I have our fast passes and dining but how will I get our magic bands?

    Hi, Donna! Thanks for stopping by with your question. MagicBands are the coolest aspect of MyMagic+. With one flick of your wrist, you can be instantly connected to your My Disney Experience account, which houses all of your Advance Dining Reservations, FastPass+ selections and Memory Maker. However, a MagicBand is not required to experience all of this magic.

    At this time, only Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guests are issued a complimentary MagicBand. Guests staying off-property can use their theme park tickets much in the same way, as long as their ticket is linked to their My Disney Experience account. A tap of your linked theme park ticket to the Mickey touchpoint will get you connected to your FastPass+ selections and will also link your Disney PhotoPass pictures to your account.

    You may decide that you would like to experience the convenience the MagicBand affords its wearer. You are more than welcome to purchase a MagicBand while at the Resort, through the Disney Store, or even via the Shop Disney Parks app. You can link your new MagicBand to your My Disney Experience app or you can stop by any Guest Relations to have a Cast Member assist you with this. There are so many fantastic MagicBands to choose from, with all sorts of colors, patterns, and themes represented.

    I hope this information helps you as you continue to plan your upcoming vacation. Please stop by again if you think of any other questions or need some ideas on how to make this an unforgettable vacation!
