    Hi, I am wondering if magic bands are necessary. We are not staying at a Disney resort so I would have to purchase them which is fine but I am just wondering is it worth it, does it make things a lot easier?

    Hello, Sarah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We are so excited to help answer any question you have about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    I want to let you know that it is not necessary to purchase MagicBands if you not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort.  When you stay off-property, your Magic Your Way Theme Park ticket will allow access to the Disney Theme Parks and to your FastPass+ reservations. These two features are all you need to enjoy each day of your vacation.  In my opinion, it is just as easy to use your Magic Your Way Theme Park tickets than spending the extra money to purchase MagicBands. That way you can spend the money you save on special Disney treats for your family!

    If you have other questions, please let us know!  We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
