    HI. We are coming to Orlando for spring break (March 14th-18th). My questions are...we r staying off the property & I'm needing ticket/magicband info..where to purchase,when,fast pass, ect. I appreciate any info!!!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jennifer!

    I'm so excited to help you plan for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! For me, the easiest way to purchase Walt Disney World Resort tickets is online from the Walt Disney World Resort website. This will automatically link your tickets to your My Disney Experience account, which is how you will manage all of your vacation plans. Since you are staying off-property, you will be able to begin making FastPass+ reservations 30 days in advance of your trip. In order to be able to make your FastPass+ reservations, your tickets will need to be linked to your My Disney Experience account. So, you will want to purchase them prior to your 30-day window opens. FastPass+ availability is limited, so you will want to make your reservations as early as possible.

    MagicBands can be purchased prior to your trip from the Disney Store website or you can purchase them during your trip at the theme park and resort hotel gift shops or from Disney Springs. You can also choose to use a complimentary admission card to access your theme park tickets and FastPass+ reservations. If you haven't done so, I recommend you also make dining reservations for any restaurants you are interested in as soon as possible, as things sometime fill up quickly.

    Come back to see us if you have any more questions! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
