    Staying at the Dolphin resort.In the past,I've received magic bands which allowed me to pick my fast passes before we left home.Is there a way to get fast passes with regular tickets I purchase either beforehand or at the hotel?

    Hi Tracy,

    I am happy to help you with your vacation planning for your upcoming stay at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel!

    It is actually your My Disney Experience account that links your Disney FastPass+ selections to your ticket media, such as a MagicBand or card. As long as you have a ticket linked in your My Disney Experience account, you will be able to make Disney FastPass+ selections. If you purchase Walt Disney World tickets before you leave home, you can make your Disney FastPass+ selections from home as long as those tickets are linked in your My Disney Experience account.  

    It sounds like in the past you have had a MagicBand. If you still have the MagicBand, check on your My Disney Experience account under "MagicBands and Cards." If your MagicBand is listed there and is "active," I believe that it should link to your new tickets! If it is not, or if you do not have your MagicBand any longer, do not worry. With your tickets, you will be issued a credit-card size and feel card. This card will work as your ticket media to enter the park and will contain all of the Disney FastPass+ selections that you made, just like your MagicBand did. I traveled to Walt Disney World this past summer with friends who used the cards. My family had MagicBands. It was simple - anytime we used our MagicBands, they used their cards. We had even all linked in My Disney Experience and made our Disney FastPass+ selections together.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Tracy! Do let us know if you have any further questions.
