    I will be in Disney world for New Years but I will not be staying in a Disney hotel can my family still get the magic bands because we are getting the memory package and other things and I think It would be easier to have the bands instead of a card.

    Hi Kayla!

    Absolutely! As a Guest staying off-property, you may certainly purchase MagicBands even before you arrive on property. Buy them from shopDisney online or via the Shop Disney Parks mobile app. If you opt to wait until arriving on-property, use the app to locate your favorite MagicBand designs. Alternatively, visit one of the retail MagicBand on Demand stations – at select merchandise locations – to create and personalize your MagicBands.

    I recommend linking all theme parks tickets, MagicBands and dining reservations via your My Disney Experience account. Linking your tickets will allow you to reserve 3 FastPass+ picks for select attractions, entertainment, and Character Greetings up to 30 days in advance of each theme park visit day. Furthermore, you'll enjoy the added flexibility of being able to change FastPass+ selections via your smartphone or at FastPass+ Kiosks, subject to availability.

    Since you have already purchased Memory Maker, do link it to your My Disney Experience account too. Then wear your MagicBands on attractions offering PhotoPass photos and videos. Also whenever you cross paths with Disney PhotoPass photographers, be sure to ask them for Magic Shots and Animated Magic Shots.

    Wishing your family a most magical New Year's Eve at Walt Disney World Resort!
