    We aren't staying on Disney property, but our group's tickets are linked to a Magic Band I've purchased on my own. Can we use my band to check in for our shared FastPass+ reservations or do we each need bands/cards?

    Hi Andrea,

    How fun that you're planning a getaway to the Walt Disney World Resort with some fellow Mouseketeers! In my opinion, the only thing better than visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" is sharing the magic with your loved ones! 

    First, I'm happy to let you know that since MagicBands are reusable, you will be able to use a MagicBand from a previous trip. No data is stored on the MagicBand itself, rather it simply links back to your My Disney Experience account where your theme park tickets and FastPass+ selections are stored. However, since tickets and FastPass+ selections are linked to a specific individual, each Guest within your party will need their own MagicBand or card. Your MagicBand will only allow access into the theme parks or FastPass+ queues for you.

    I do love hearing that you're planning FastPass+ selections together, though! With the Family & Friends list within My Disney Experience, it's easy peasy to set up FastPass+ selections however they work best for your group. If you'd all like to experience some attractions together, great! If you have some thrill seekers who want to experience Space Mountain while the rest of your group works together to defeat Evil Emperor Zurg at Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, you split into smaller FastPass+ groups, too. Please feel free to set up your selections however they work best for you! And don't forget that after you've enjoyed your three pre-planned selections, you'll be able to make additional selections, one at a time, with the My Disney Experience mobile app or an in-park kiosk.

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Andrea, and please feel free to let us know if you have any other questions. I hope that you and your entire group have a truly magical vacation together!
