    Can you use magic bands if you are not staying onsite?

    Hello, Michele! MagicBands are the best accessories to have on-hand at Walt Disney World Resort. They serve a variety of purposes, from unlocking a Disney Resort hotel room to charging food and merchandise purchases and more. Guests of the Disney Resort hotels do see more use from MagicBands, but they are also very useful to Guests that choose to stay offsite.

    If you are planning to stay offsite, you can use MagicBands in the place of paper theme park tickets to enter the theme parks (with valid theme park admission), check in at FastPass+ attractions, and connect Disney PhotoPass and Memory Maker images to your Disney account. These three features make a MagicBand really worthwhile to offsite Guests, in my opinion. Whether you purchase one online or at a Walt Disney World Resort retail location, make sure to get it linked to your Disney account as soon as you are able to get the most use out of your MagicBand.

    I hope that you enjoy your MagicBand, Michele! If you have any additional questions before your Walt DIsney World vacation, please do not hesitate to stop back by the Moms Panel. Happy planning!
