    What will magic bands do if you are not staying at a Disney Resort?

    Hi, Adrienne!

    Thanks so much for your question and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The MagicBand is one of my favorite pieces Disney merchandise to have! When our family doesn't stay on Disney property, we still activate and use our favorite character MagicBands! 

    MagicBands can be used to store your park ticket admission, PhotoPass or Memory Maker photos, and FastPass+ choices when you aren't staying at a Disney resort. Everything that is linked to your My Disney Experience account will be stored on your MagicBand. It makes entering the parks, attractions, and shows super easy! If you decide not to use a MagicBand, admission cards will be given to you, which will be used for the same purpose! 
    With the admission card, you will need to keep it in a safe place so that you don't lose while walking around the parks or on attractions. With the MagicBand, everything you need is right on your wrist! 

    So our family always enjoys unlocking the magic at the touch of our wrist! Plus wearing anything Disney just makes us happy! If you decide to purchase one before your visit, take a look at the Disney Store online or Shop Disney App and have one sent to your home before your vacation!

    I hope this helps you to decide if a MagicBand is something your family will enjoy! If you have any more questions, please visit with us again soon!

    Happy planning!
