    My family will soon be attending the WDW Resort, we have magicbands from last years Disney vacation and purchased tickets thru My Disney Experience for this trip. This year we are staying off site and I'm wondering if my bands are automatically active?

    Hi Joanne!

    You can certainly use your MagicBand if you are staying off-site. All you have to do is log in to your My Disney Experience Account and ensure that the MagicBand you would like to use is appearing on your account and is showing as "active". Next, ensure that the tickets you purchased are linked to your account as well. Once this is done, you should be good to go!

    Did you know?: Guests now have a new option to create and personalize MagicBands at Walt Disney World Resort. The new MagicBand on Demand station is located inside the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. location near Space Mountain in Magic Kingdom Park. These can also be purchased at the D-Tech on Demand boutique at the Marketplace Co-Op in Disney Springs Marketplace. To view some of the options and for pricing information, please check out this page: Retail MagicBand on Demand.

    It has been a pleasure assisting you!
    Thanks for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Happy Planning!
