    My family and I are wanting to plan a trip. We are not staying at a Disney resort, but on a property 5 miles away. Can we still order MagicBands and use them to link up with tickets and everything else?

    Hi Allison!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I'm so excited for your upcoming Walt Disney World visit! You will be happy to know that the answer to your question is: YES! You absolutely can purchase MagicBands--either online or through the Shop Disney Parks smartphone app--and link everything together on your MagicBand through your My Disney Experience account. If you don't already have an account, go ahead and create one. Then simply link every element of your vacation to your account: Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPass+ choices, Memory Maker (and more!) Here's a little hint...if you log in to your account first and then make your Reservations, they should be automatically linked. I would definitely advise that you double check everything as you go along, though, by clicking the My Reservations and Tickets link under My Disney Experience on the home page of the Walt Disney World website--just to make sure everything is in your account and ready to go.

    As you are planning, please come back to see us if there is anything else we can do to help you. Here's wishing you a fantastic Walt Disney World visit.

    Have a magical day!
