    Sarah from Tyne And Wear Asked

    Hi, I have been looking at the magic bands and they look really good for easy access to FastPass or to collect photos. I am not staying in a Disney Hotel though, so can I still use a magic band? Thanks

    Hey Sarah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your excellent question about MagicBands! I hope you will continue to visit the Moms Panel while planning your upcoming vacation.

    Sarah, you will be thrilled to know that you do not need to stay at a Disney Resort hotel in order to use a MagicBand! Because you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will not be able to use a MagicBand for purchases. However, you can most certainly use your MagicBand to enter FastPass+ queues and collect your Disney PhotoPass photos and videos!

    You can purchase a MagicBand online in advance of your vacation from shopDisney or the Shop Disney Parks mobile app. You can also choose to purchase a MagicBand, in person, once you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort. It is easy to link your Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket to your Disney Account using My Disney Experience online or the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Did you know? You can have more than one active MagicBand in your Disney Account at any given time. I always keep multiple active MagicBands in my account in order to match them to my outfit of the day!

    Sarah, I hope I have helped answer your question. If you have any other questions, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again. We are always here to help you!
