    Michell from LA Asked

    I have a MagicBand from Oct.2015 Yacht Club stay, will it work in Nov.2016? What can the MagicBand be used for since we are staying offsite this trip? How do you get and use Fastpass times in advance if you don't use a MagicBand? Thanks for your help!

    Hello, Michell!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    MagicBands can be used as long as they are in working condition. So, if you want to use the MagicBand from your October visit last year, you can! Just be sure to check your My Disney Experience account and make sure that the MagicBand is activated. 

    When staying off Disney property, MagicBands can be used as your theme park admission ticket, for PhotoPass photos, and FastPass+ selections. The times that my family has stayed off property, we still enjoy using our favorite MagicBands! It just makes entering the parks a lot easier!

    If you choose not to use the MagicBands that you have, your park admission will be stored on an admission card. Admission cards are used the same as MagicBands, so they store your park tickets, PhotoPass selections, and FastPass+ options! 

    So no matter which one you decide to use, your Disney vacation will still me just as magical! 

    Enjoy planning your upcoming stay and if you have more questions, please visit with the Disney Parks Moms Panel again!
