    Can you still use the Fast Pass + system even if you are not staying on Disney property and do not want to purchase the magic bands?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Jasmine ~

    All Guests can now take advantage of Disney FastPass+ service (FP+) including those who are not staying on Disney property. Guests who are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel can make FP+ selections 30 days in advance. If you have already purchased your park tickets, you will need to create a My Disney Experience account and link your theme park tickets to your account. Be sure to add the people in your party to your Family & Friends list so that you can make FP+ selections for all of you.

    You do not have to purchase a MagicBand in order to use FP+. Guests can elect to use a card instead (it looks like a plastic credit card). It works the same way and it is free.

    If you do not purchase your theme park tickets in advance and cannot make your FP+ selections before reaching the park, your first stop once you are inside a theme park should be at a FP+ kiosk to make your FP+ selections. The FP+ kiosk locations are marked on the Guide Map for each park. There are Cast Members at these locations to answer questions and assist you when making your FP+ selections.

    Please feel free to visit us again with all of your planning questions. We are hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
