    How do I get fast passes and magic bands for magic kingdom, Hollywood studios and Epcot?

    Hey there, Annette, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the panel with your question! Your Walt Disney World Vacation is quickly approaching! So it’s great to see you here checking a few boxes off of your Disney Vacation Planning list. It’s extremely satisfying to see that list get smaller and smaller! 

    Annette, Walt Disney World has replaced the FastPass+ system with Disney’s Genie+ Service. Disney’s Genie+ Service is the new method for reserving attraction return windows across the resort and is available as a daily add-on service that you can purchase each morning (after 12:01 a.m. EST) of your Theme Park days. The service is purchased directly through your My Disney Experience mobile app. After you complete your purchase, your first Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane entrance can be reserved beginning at 7 a.m. EST. Then, the My Disney Experience mobile app will notify you when you can make your next attraction reservation. 

    Annette, Guests staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel may have access to purchase MagicBands at pre-arrival exclusive prices! My favorite way to locate the pre-arrival exclusive MagicBands is through the My Disney Experience account online. After logging into your account, navigate to your upcoming reservation, and you should see an option to “Unlock the Magic with MagicBands.” You’ll then have the opportunity to choose a MagicBand for each member of your vacation party at discounted rates. If you are not staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can purchase MagicBands through ShopDisney! With plenty of time left before your vacation, I’m confident everyone in your traveling party will find a MagicBand that they like and be ready to go when the Disney Vacation starts!

    I hope this helps, Annette! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
