    We have already received our magic bands, but we have not reserved fast passes yet. Can we still choose fast passes from home, and will that info be automatically linked to the bands we already have?

    Hi Angela,

    Ooh...SO exciting!! If you've already received your MagicBands, that means that it's almost time for your vacation to the most magical place on earth! I'd definitely encourage you to make those FastPass+ selections as soon as you can! You'll be able to choose three attractions or experiences per day ahead of time, and then once you have enjoyed those, you may use the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk to add additional FastPass+ selections one at a time, until the parks close. FastPass+ is a wonderful (and complimentary!) service that will save a you a lot of time waiting in lines by allowing you to skip the standby queues. 

    And no worries...or as Simba learned from his friends Timon and Pumbaa in The Lion King, "Hakuna Matata!" When you arrive, your MagicBand will automagically link to everything you need - your park tickets, FastPass+ selections, PhotoPass photos, and even your Disney Resort hotel room key! You'll find that MagicBands are not just cute, but they're super convenient! As a mom of five, I love that all of my Mouseketeers have everything that they need right on their wrists, and I don't have to worry about keeping track of everything for my whole family.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Angela, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning for your trip. We're always happy to help! I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
