    Spending Xmas at Disney but not staying at Disney Resort as we have previously. From what I understand we get a card instead of magic bands. My kids would like to use the bands from a previous disney trip for ticket/fast pass. Is this possible? thx!

    Welcome Back Leslie ~

    I am so excited to hEAR that you will be celebrating joy through the world this yEAR!

    That is an excellent question. Since you will not be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel during your upcoming trip, you will not receive new MagicBands for your visit. However, you are more than welcome to use your MagicBands from previous trips and link your new theme park tickets to them. Just make sure your MagicBands are still active on your My Disney Experience.

    You can link your MagicBands or new tickets online to your My Disney Experience or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app. To do that on the mobile app, click on your personal avatar at the bottom center of the home screen. Under "Park Info & Entry", select "My Tickets". You can swipe left to see all of the tickets you currently have linked to your My Disney Experience. To link new tickets, select the + symbol in the small blue circle in the upper right corner. Then select "Link Tickets & Passes". You can type in the ID Code or scan the code if you have the physical ticket in your hand. If your previous MagicBands are not linked, you can do it following the same steps as linking your new tickets.

    I would highly recommend linking your new theme park tickets to your My Disney Experience account as soon as possible. Guests who are staying off property and have linked their theme park tickets can begin making Disney FastPass+ selections 30 days prior to their trip. That will save you a lot of time waiting in line.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We will be hEAR for you until you embark on your pixie dusted trail!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
