    So my family and I have been every year since 1999 with the exception of last year and the year before sadly we will not make it this year either. However we're trying to plan for next summer and I do not understand this new Fastpass Magic Band system.

    Hi Tonya,

    You will LOVE FastPass+ and MagicBands! As a guest staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you may reserve up to 3 FastPass+ selections per day as early as 60 days prior to your check-in date. What's more, on that 60-day mark, you can make FastPass+ selections for the entire length of your vacation stay.

    Guest staying off-property may secure up to 3 FastPass+ selections per day, 30 days in advance of each Disney theme park visit day (one-day-at-a-time). For more detailed information about making FastPass+ reservations for attractions and entertainment, please visit this FAQ page.

    If you are staying on-property, you will receive complementary MagicBands. These may be customized via your My Disney Experience account. If you are staying off-property, you can purchase MagicBands if you wish. Link your MagicBands to your My Disney Experience account. Any FastPass+ reservations booked ahead of time will then be associated with your MagicBands, even before arriving on Disney property!

    Disney Mom Tip: Select additional FastPass+ choices, after redeeming your first 3 initial FastPass+ selections, via the My Disney Experience Mobile app. Once you've used the fourth FastPass+ pick, you'll be able to make another selection via the app, and so on—up to park closing—all while on the go!
