    Tara from OH Asked

    Hi, we are not staying at a wdw resort, would it still be beneficial to get the magic bands? What would i use them for?

    Hi Tara!

    Absolutely! MagicBands are one of the most innovative, convenient and fun ideas introduced at the Walt Disney World Resort. While it is not required if you are staying off-site, it is a convenient thing to have. When staying off-site, the only use you would have for the MagicBand would be for the park tickets and FastPass + selections. You could purchase a MagicBand online at www.disneystore.com, via the Shop Disney Parks App on your mobile device or at one of the many shops located in the theme parks or Disney Springs. The advantage to purchasing them in advance is that you can link them to your My Disney Experience Account and have them set up and ready to go when you arrive at the parks. If you purchase your park tickets in advance, you can link those as well to your My Disney Experience Account and simply bypass the ticket windows and head over to the entrance gates with your MagicBands.

    Did you know?: The Express Transportation Option is a great new way to speed up the park hopping and make the most out of your park experience! For more information, please visit: Express Transportation Option.  

     It has been a pleasure assisting you Tara! Please feel free to send me any additional questions.
