    We decided at the last minute to go to Epcot during our trip to Orlando next week. I pre-purchased our one day ticket to take advantage of reserving our fast passes. We are not staying at a Disney property so where do I go to pick up the magic bands?

    Hi Cathy!

    I hope you have your bags packed! Your vacation is almost here! The only ticket purchases that offer free Magicbands are Annual Passholder Tickets and those Passholder MagicBands must be ordered on the My Disney Experience Account and are shipped to the Passholder.  If you are staying at a Disney Resort, you would receive a MagicBand free of charge as these are used to open the door to your room, to charge to your room account as well as to use dining credits given as part of a Disney Dining Plan. Since you are are staying off-site, you could purchase a MagicBand online at www.disneystore.com, via the Shop Disney Parks App on your mobile device or at one of the many shops located in the theme parks or Disney Springs. 

    Did you know?: Guests have the option to create and personalize MagicBands at Walt Disney World Resort. The  MagicBand on Demand stations are located inside the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. location near Space Mountain in Magic Kingdom Park. These can also be purchased at the D-Tech on Demand boutique at the Marketplace Co-Op in Disney Springs Marketplace or Star Wars Launch Bay in Disney's Hollywood Studios. To view some of the artwork options and for more information, please visit: Retail MagicBand on Demand.

    It has been a pleasure assisting you!
    Thanks for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Happy Planning!
