Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • Going to WDW in November and have purchased a photo pass plus. We were selected to use the new magic bands. My question is are the photo passes also linked to the magic band and they will only need to scan our bands or will we still have to get a card?

  • Hi Holly!

          Disney is still in the testing phase for the new My Disney Experience, My Magic + and Magic Bands in Walt Disney World. Disney plans to roll out My Magic + which includes FastPass + and the Magic Bands to all Walt Disney World Guests including those Guests not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort by the end of this year (2013).  Yes, PhotoPass + is linked to the Magic Band so you do not have to get a PhotoPass card (you can just use your Magic Band).  The PhotoPass Photographers scan your Magic Band after they take your photos.  I used my Magic Band a lot to get PhotoPass Photos on my most recent Walt Disney World vacation this Fall and it worked great!  You can also have PhotoPass Card or Cards and have them added to your PhotoPass + too if you want, but it is much easier just to use your Magic Band.

    I hope that your November Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
