    I am coming to Disney in Florida in June. I am not staying at a Disney resort. Can I still use the magic bands. And if yes. How?

    Hi Allison!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm glad to let you know that you can definitely purchase a MagicBand and use it on your upcoming Disney trip!

    Before you arrive you can purchase a MagicBand on the Disney Store website or the Shop Disney Parks app. You'll also have the option of purchasing one at several different Walt Disney World locations after you arrive. As on off-property Guest, you'll be able to link your park tickets, use the band for FastPass+ entrances and connect your Disney PhotoPass images to your account! Unfortunately charging privileges are limited to only Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guests.

    After you purchase your band you will need to create or log in to your My Disney Experience account,where you can link your MagicBand, tickets, FastPass+ and PhotoPass. The My Disney Experience mobile app is also a great tool to use while your in the park to fully maximize everything your MagicBand can do! I think you'll find the MagicBand to be incredibly convenient, but if you change your mind you'll always have the option to use a card for park admission, FastPass+ and your photos throughout the day. Please let us know if you have any other questions and I hope you have a magical trip!
