    Hi everyone!! My family and I are going to be visiting again in April 2016. We are staying off property and I was wondering if we are able to use MagicBands? If so, how do I go about getting them? Thank you so much!!

    Hey Jessica-

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Wahoo! Heading back to the place “where dreams come true" will make your April the best! You are going to have a blast. Yes, you may purchase and use MagicBands when staying off property and link them to your Disney account in My Disney Experience. This way you may “touch” your way into the theme parks as well as gain access to FastPass+ return lines.

    Disney Dad Tip 1: There are so many designs, collections and colors that MagicBands have become fantastic wearable souvenirs. The best variety is in the theme park merchandise shops or at the shops in the Downtown Disney Area so you could wait till you arrive to purchase one. There are also MagicBandits charms and MagicSliders that are so cool.

    Disney Dad Tip 2: If you want one before you arrive I would order one from and search on for ways to decorate the MagicBand with nail polish and other materials to make it extra-special. For example, Black stripes on an orange makes your MagicBand… Tigger-riffic while a green MagicBand with white, purple and red will take you “to infinity and beyond.”

    Jessica, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
