    aloha, we are traveling from Hawaii and picked up WDW tickets online but not staying on a WDW properties, is it possible for us to purchase Magicbands for our selves than carry around the tickets they give to us.. We have never visited DW only DL.

    Aloha, Dana! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so excited for you to experience all the magic that Walt Disney World Resort has to offer! Even though you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, I am happy to tell you that YES you can still take advantage of the convenience of having a MagicBand! There are several merchandise locations that sell the bands throughout the Disney Theme Parks and a friendly Cast Member can help you link them to your existing Disney Theme Park tickets. Alternatively, you can purchase them online and have them wear them as you leave your house! It’s kind of fun to get the vacation started right away! Remember that if you do purchase them online, you can link them to your current Disney Theme Park tickets through your My Disney Experience account. From here, you can also make your Advanced Dining Reservations and your FastPass+ Reservations.

    Since this will be your first visit to Walt Disney World Resort, might I also suggest taking a few minutes to view the online planning video? Also, please stop by again with more questions! We just love helping Guests make their vacations Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

    Have a magical time,
