    Kristine from MI Asked

    We are staying off site and we want to order magic bands for our trip in August. Will our bands download ride picture straight to our bands even if we are off site guest? I am hoping to skip picture line. FYI we have ordered photo pass. Thanks

    Hi Kristine,
    Thanks for coming to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The great thing about Magic Bands is that they are linked to your My Disney Experience account, not your hotel. Your Memory Maker purchase is also linked to My Disney Experience, so you can use your Magic Band to help you capture all those PhotoPass pictures even if you aren't staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Note that some attractions still require you to scan your Magic Band at the end of the attraction when your photo appears on the screen, so make sure you check to see if there are touch points (like the ones you use for FastPass+ or to enter the theme park) at the end of the attraction to add these photos to your PhotoPass account. In these cases, you will not be able to skip the picture line at the end of an attraction.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
