    My daughter's high school band will be coming in February 2016 to march in the parade at Magic Kingdom. I'll be a chaperone and we'll be staying off site. Will we get magic bands to use at the parks during our visit?

    Hi there, Donald!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm sure your daughter is super excited about marching in the parade at Magic Kingdom Park. That is awesome!

    MagicBands are only complimentary for Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guests. Since you are staying off property, you will not receive them when you purchase your tickets. There's no need to worry though! Your park ticket will function just like a MagicBand for your entrance into the parks and FastPass+ lines. Instead of using a MagicBand at the touch points, you will just tap your park ticket. You'll also still have the ability to book three FastPass+ attractions per day 30 days in advance of your arrival.

    I hope you enjoy your upcoming trip and please stop back by if you have any other questions. Have a magical day!
