    hello. my family of 6 is planning a trip in March. we will stay on Disney property but may buy tickets on a discount site. will we still get magic bands? also is it hard to get fast passes for all 6 together? Thank you, Carleen

    Hi Carleen! Thanks for coming to see us again. We're always here to help you with your Disney planning.

    Guest who stay at any of the Walt Disney World resort receive a solid color, complimentary MagicBand. There's also an option to pay a discounted price from a selection of character MagicBands. However, the character MagicBands are currently unavailable, but will hopefully be available on the My Disney Experience website again soon. 

    So no matter where you purchase your theme park tickets, each member of your family, three and older will receive a MagicBand that can be used during your Disney vacation. 

    When it comes to securing FastPass+ for your whole family, you may have to split your search into groups if you aren't able to secure FastPass+ for the entire group at once. Try searching for FastPass+ attractions and shows for three guests at a time, or four and two guests, or even five and one. As you begin to secure the attractions just make sure that each guests FastPass+ times overlap. Each attraction FastPass+ reservation gives you an hour timeframe to enter the FastPass+ line. So as long as each member of your family's FastPass+ return time overlaps, you'll be able to enjoy the attraction together. For FastPass+ shows, each member of your family must select the same time, as each show has a different start time. 

    Insider tip: Each show at Disney has plenty of seating. So FastPass+ usually isn't needed unless you want to have a front row seat. So just entering the regular FastPass+ line is just fine for your entire family.

    Have the most magical time at Walt Disney World, Carleen. Please visit with us again if you have more Disney planning questions.
