    Afternoon, my family will be visiting in late October of 2014. We are not staying on a Disney resort this trip. We are wondering if we should buy Magic Bands or just stick with tickets?? And when/how early do we make our Fast Pass selections?!

    Hello Selena,

    Thank you for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we are here to help with your Walt Disney World vacation planning and happy to do so.

    As a Guest, not staying at a Walt Disney World resort, you have the option of purchasing your tickets and linking them to your My Disney Experience account, in order to take advantage of booking your FastPass+ reservations 30 days from your visit. Although it is not necessary, you have the option to purchase MagicBands, which are available in seven colors, currently for $12.95 + tax at all Walt Disney World Theme Parks and in the Downtown Disney area.  

    If I can be of any further pixie dusted assistance feel free to ask and enjoy planning your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
