    Hi! Our family is staying off property and will be at the parks for 2 days. Would the Magic Bands be beneficial to us? Thank You!

    Hi Katie,

    What a great question! Since you are staying off property, you will not receive a Magic Band for your tickets. You will receive a plastic ticket to use while you are in the parks. If you wanted a Magic Band, you would need to purchase one for use. You can then have it linked to your tickets in My Disney Experience.

    One advantage of the Magic Band is that you can hold your ticket, PhotoPass, FastPass+ and Advance Dining Reservations in one location using My Disney Experience. It is great to simply swipe your wrist and you are on your way.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
