    we are visiting WDW in feb but staying off site and getting 2 Day PH tickets. Do we get magic bands, can we use old magic bands and add new tickets to them, or can we buy new magic bands?

    Hi Dianna ~

    Your trip will be here before you know it and I love that you are planning ahead!

    Those are most excellent questions! Since you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will not receive new MagicBands for your trip. However, you are more than welcome to use your old MagicBands and link your new theme park tickets to them. You can do that online on your My Disney Experience account or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    If you would like, you can buy new MagicBands. There are so many super cool new designs! MagicBands are available throughout the Walt Disney World Resort at many of the merchandise locations. You can also order them prior to your trip by going to the online Disney Store or on the Shop Disney Parks app. You can have multiple MagicBands linked to your account so you don't have to worry about deleting your old MagicBands in order to add your new ones.

    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 again with all of your planning questions. We're hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
