    Hi. I bought magic bands for my entire family. We will be arriving at non-Disney resort in June. Do I activate all bands in my account settings?

    Hello Santosha!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I honestly wouldn't know how to plan a non-Walt Disney World Resort trip as I am so very reliant on MagicBands and My Disney Experience when planning my Endless Magical Vacations.

    As a benefit to Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, MagicBands for Guests are automatically linked to a provided My Disney Experience Account.  When staying off-site, Guests can easily link their separately purchased MagicBands to their My Disney Experience and scan their MagicBands 12-digit ID Number(located on the  for scheduled FastPass+ Selections, connected Theme Park Tickets, Disney PhotoPass Pictures taken at the Walt Disney World Resort and more.

    FastPass+ selections may be made up to 30 days in advance of your visit to Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks through your My Disney Experience Account. If you plan to visit the new Pandora - The World of Avatar, I recommend you try to book 1 of your FastPass+ selections for Avatar Flight of Passage or Na'vi River Journey as they are already extremely popular and you'll definitely want to take a look.

    Have a Magic(Band) Vacation!
