    Can I enjoy all the Disney Resort user benefits described on this website (ex. Complimentary Magicband, Complimentary Airport Shuttle, Fastpass+, etc.) even if I make reservation of WDW Disney Resort Hotels through an outside source?

    Hi Hajime,

    A magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort awaits. How exciting!

    Although the easiest way to book a resort reservation is to do so online, or calling a vacation planning specialist at (407) 939-1936, or via a travel agent, you can still book room-only reservations via internet travel sites and receive all the benefits available to you, such as MagicBands, FastPass+ reservations and Disney’s Magical Express. Many of these sites do require advanced payment in full, and you’ll also have to purchase theme park tickets in advance in order to make FastPass+ ahead of time. Although room reservations are typically fully refundable up to about a week before arrival, theme park tickets are not refundable.

    A Magic Your Way Vacation Package includes a stay at a Disney Resort hotel, theme park tickets and optionally you may add a Disney Dining Plan. These packages can only be booked directly with Disney or via a travel agent. They require a $200 deposit, and it’s fully refundable up to 30 days before arrival, time when the rest of the package will be due.

    Keep an eye for discounts and offers in the Special Offers & Deals page. In the meantime, if you have any more questions, don’t hesitate to come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
