    Hello my family and I are planning to visit July 2019, I wanted to know if we can get magic bands even though we are not staying at a Disney Resort.

    Hi Giovanna and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You’re in for a magical Summer visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks for stopping by with your question.

    MagicBands are my favorite accessory when I visit Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. They carry our theme park ticket information and hold our FastPass+ information, making it easy to make our way through the queues of our favorite attractions.  

    You can absolutely purchase a MagicBand on the Shop Disney site online, even if you’re not staying at a Disney Resort hotel. Just remember to link it to your My Disney Experience account before your magical visit and you and your group will be good to go!

    Giovanna, I hope I’ve answered your question. If you need any more help as you’re planning, feel free to send us your questions! It's our pleasure to help you with all the details of your next visit!
