    So i know there are magic bands now that give you access to fast passes but are there still the paper ones you can get from the machines. And another thing is what are my benefits with magic bands and fastpass+

    Hello Gabriela.  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    I love using a MagicBand while I am on my Walt Disney World vacation.  It literally is your key to everything.  It unlocks your resort room door, links to your tickets for park entry, stores your FastPass+ selections, links to your Disney Dining Plan credits and even allows you to pay for purchases when you link your credit card to it.  It really allows for a hands free park experience.  As a resort guest, you can now make  FastPass+ selections 60 days ahead of time using your MyDisneyExperience account.  You wont be able to get any paper FastPass selections inside of the parks anymore, all of those machines have been removed.  You can, however, still make FastPass+ selections inside of the parks by stopping by one of the kiosks and scanning your MagicBand.

    I hope this helps explain the MagicBand features a little bit better.  If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask.

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
