    I'm going in June and staying off the property. What is these new bands I see, how do they work, and if I buy my tickets online how will they link with the bands.

    Hi Amanda!

    I am so happy to help you prepare for your trip to Walt Disney World Resort! MagicBands are my favorite way to add convenience to your vacation while showing your Disney Side on your wrist. MagicBands integrate your theme park admission tickets, FastPass+ reservations, and Memory Maker package all in a comfortable bracelet. Last year, when our family stayed off property while visiting Walt Disney World Resort, my husband (the keeper of the cards) was constantly juggling each family members' admission card as well as the cards we collected from the Disney PhotoPass photographers. With MagicBands, all of this is consolidated right on each person's band. Simply touch your MagicBand to the touch points at theme park entrances, FastPass+ entrances and following Disney PhotoPass photos and you are all set to go!

    Your My Disney Experience account is the key to linking it all together. Using the My Disney Experience website or mobile app, you can manage all your vacation plans. Simply link your tickets and MagicBands (if purchased via the Walt Disney World Resort website, your tickets should already be linked), assign them to a family member and you are ready to enjoy your trip.

    As a day Guest to Walt Disney World Resort, you can have a few options for purchasing your MagicBands. Solid color MagicBands can be ordered from the Disney Store online and shipped to your home. Or you can wait and purchase graphic MagicBands at Walt Disney World Resort when you get there. Check out the Disney Parks Blog to get an idea of MagicBands that may be available during your trip.

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