    We are planning a trip to Disney World in a few weeks. What is the fast pass? Is the magic band only if you stay at the resort?

    Hi Crystal,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for sending us this excellent question. Your visit is fast approaching. How VERY EXCITING!

    Guests staying off-property may certainly purchase MagicBands even before their vacations begin. If this describes you, then I recommend buying them from shopDisney online or via the Shop Disney Parks app. If you opt to wait until arriving on-property, use the app to locate your favorite MagicBand designs. Alternatively, visit one of the MagicBand on Demand stations – at select merchandise locations – to create and personalize your MagicBands.

    The Disney FastPass+ service is a booking system that allows you to reserve access to select Walt Disney World Resort theme park attractions, entertainment and Character Greetings in advance of your visit. For greater availability, I highly recommend purchasing tickets ahead of time and booking FastPass+ prior to arrival.

    I suggest linking ALL Theme Park Tickets, and MagicBands, via your My Disney Experience account. You will be able to reserve up to 3 FastPass+ selections per day in advance of your trip. Once you download the My Disney Experience mobile app to your smartphone, you'll enjoy the added flexibility of managing any changes to your FastPass+ selections on the go. Alternatively, you can use the FastPass+ Kiosks found throughout the parks, subject to availability.

    I hope you found this information useful, Crystal. Please visit us again with more questions. We would love to sprinkle a little pixie dust on all your Disney vacation plans!
