    Hello. Can we get Disney magic bands if we are not staying at a Disney hotel.

    Welcome to planDisney, Jennifer!
    Thanks for stopping by on your way to the Walt Disney World Resort. I see that your trip is “just around the river bend,” how exciting!

    Jennifer, you are welcome to purchase MagicBands and link them to your My Disney Experience account even if you are not a Disney Resorts Collection hotel guest. You MagicBands will serve as your theme park ticket and can be scanned to add Disney PhotoPass pictures to your account. Please note that some of the features, like the ability to connect a credit or debit card, won’t be activated as that is tied to a Disney resort reservation.

    You can purchase MagicBands at all four theme parks and Disney Springs. While I do already have a few, I couldn’t resist buying the cutest Remy themed MagicBand on my recent trip. After all, he is my favorite rat!

    Jennifer, I hope this helps as you continue to plan for your visit. Wishing you a day full of pixie dust and Magic!
