    Hello! My boyfriend and I are coming in November, we are not staying on Disney property but we have park tickets and tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Are we able to buy Magic Bands and add both of those passes to them?

    Greetings, Shelby! The last few months of the year are my favorite time to visit Walt Disney World Resort. The weather is cool and sunny, the theme parks and Resort Hotels are being decorated for the holidays, and of course, there's a great special event happening at that time of year too: Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! The Once Upon A Christmastime Parade is one of my all-time favorite things to see, and the Holiday Fireworks are the perfect way to kick off the Christmas season.

    When you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort to celebrate the holidays, I'm pleased to tell you that you can purchase a MagicBand and use it to access your theme park tickets as well as your FastPass+ selections, even if you're not staying at a Resort Hotel. There are MagicBands available in a wide variety of colors, and of course, you can get one with your favorite character on it. My favorite one is styled after my main girl, Minnie Mouse, but I have my eye on a Jessica Rabbit MagicBand I saw on ShopDisney! Once you've purchased your new MagicBand, you can use the My Disney Experience app to link your theme park and special event tickets. You can find MagicBands for sale at most large merchandise locations, like World of Disney at Disney Springs, or the Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park.

    Have a magical day, Shelby!
