    Hi I am a DVC member but my friend is going and is staying off grounds I am trying to convince her easier and cheaper to stay on site without having to rent a car etc but she has free points at the Fountain. She was wondering if she can purchase a Fast Pas

    Hi Gina,

    I love that you are trying to ensure that your friend has the most Magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort. As a Disney Vacation Club Member, you know that the convenience of staying in a fabulous Walt Disney World Resort Hotel simply cannot be matched.

    I believe you are asking if a Guest who doest not have a reservation at a Walt Disney World Resort also has access to FastPass+ selections and a MagicBand. I have great news!  Yes, all Guests are welcome to make up to three FastPass+ selections per day in one of the 4-theme parks up to 30-days in advance.  Now, Guests with a Resort hotel reservation have access to FastPass+ selections a full 60-days before check-in, so that is another major perk to staying on-site.

    While Guests with a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel reservation will receive a complimentary MagicBand for each person on the reservation, off-site visitors have the opportunity to purchase their very own MagicBand at many of the retail locations around the property, or conveniently through the Shop Disney Parks Mobile App.  They can quickly and easily link this retail MagicBand to their My Disney Experience account, and use it for purchases, theme park admission, and FastPass+ entrance. 

    I'm wishing your friend many magical memories,
