    We are going to Disney in November 2016. We are not staying at a resort hotel. We plan on buying a five day ticket. Are we able to get magic bands? How do they work? I also plan on getting the memory maker. Thank you!

    Greetings, Ashley, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we're so glad you're here.

    How exciting, you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort soon!

    Purchasing Disney Theme Park Tickets is easy to do, after which you can easily head over to MyMagic+ where you can select FastPass+ experiences, link your MagicBand and much more.

    Your MagicBand will enable you to:
    - enter the Disney Theme Parks
    - check-in at FastPass+ entrances
    - identify your Disney PhotoPass Photos and Memory Maker which allows you digital downloads of all Disney PhotoPass attraction and experience photos and videos

    You can purchase your MagicBand at:
    - select Walt Disney World Resort retail locations where the Cast Members can assist with linking MagicBands
    - the Disney Store online where you can later 'link' your MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account

    Ashley, I hope this information is helpful and wish you a wonderful vacation. Perhaps on a return trip, you can consider staying at one of our many Disney Resort hotels where you will benefit from all the unique and convenient Guest amenities.

    Best Disney Wishes~
