    What are the benefits of purchasing magic bands if you are staying offsite? Are you able to link them to the memory maker? If so, how does that work. Thank you so much for your help.

    Hi Kraig,

    I love having a MagicBand. It makes things a lot easier when vacationing at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    When you have a MagicBand, you can hold your park tickets, FastPass+, dining reservations and Memory Maker in one location. This makes it super easy to wave your hand across the park or attraction entrance or use it to save your PhotoPass and attraction photos to your account. If you were staying off-site, you would have one card for your tickets and FastPass+ and a separate card for your Memory Maker photos. 

    To link all your tickets, FastPass+, dining and Memory Maker, you simply need to create a My Disney Experience account. You then can link all of these items in the account. If you are traveling with other people, invite them to your trip and then FastPass+, dining and Memory Maker can be shared.

    You can use the My Disney Experience mobile app to make changes while in the park.

    Wishing you a magical day!
