    Arrive 12/9 for a week; All Stars Music resort. Will Magic Bands be available or still only 'select' resorts/individuals? Can you explain the Magic Bands/Magic Bands+? Is it true you can use a magic band + for reserve fast passes weeks before your visit?

    Hi, Sharon!

    The first couple weeks of December is such a nice time to visit Walt Disney World! Our family really loves seeing all of the Parks and Resorts dressed up in their holiday best!

    The new MyMagic+ is a very exciting dimension of Disney Magic! MagicBands are still in the testing phases as of now and Guests are being randomly selected to participate in that testing. You'll want to make sure that you've entered your Resort reservation number into your My Disney Experience account so that your reservation is connected in case your family is selected. You just never know where the Pixie Dust will land!

    MagicBands and cards are all-in-one devices that serve as your Park ticket, room key and more. During the testing phase, Guests have been able to reserve FastPass+ times from their computers before they even arrive at Walt Disney World for their vacations! Please click on the links I've included here in my answer as they will take you to the individual pages that have lots of valuable information.

    I sure hope this helps, Sharon! Don't hesitate to write back in if we can help with any additional questions!

    Wishing you a Pixie Dusted vacation!
