    We will be checking into Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort on March 12. We will be checking out on the morning of March 13 and I was wondering if we would still be able to use our Magic Bands at the park even though we wouldn't be staying at a Disney hotel.

    Hi Stephanie,
    I'm so glad you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel-you have a great question. Yes, you can use your Magic Bands even though you are not staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. However, you will not be able to use them to purchase anything (f you elected to have charging privileges) past the last day of your stay. As for your park tickets and FastPass+ reservations, your Magic Bands can still be used on this trip and on any future trip, as long as the battery is still functioning in your band. You can also purchase Magic Bands even if you aren't staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel in many shops located on Disney property.

    I hope you enjoy your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
