    This is our first trip to Disney World. We will be heading to Disney World for 1 day this year. We will not being staying on the property this time. Is it possible to get the magic pass bands for the 1 day?

    Hi Briana, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You have picked the most wonderful time of the year to visit the Walt Disney World Resort.

    MagicBands are complimentary for guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. Anyone can purchase a MagicBand to use during their visit. You can make your purchase online or in the Shop Disney Parks app prior to your visit. There are a number of special and even some limited edition MagicBands to choose from in addition to the basic solid color MagicBands.

    In order to use them, you will need to link your MagicBands and your theme park admission tickets to your My Disney Experience account. Once you have a prepaid theme park admission, you will be able to make FastPass+ reservations 30 days before your arrival. You will be able to use your MagicBand to enter the park and redeem your FastPass+ selections at a MagicBand touch point. You will want to make sure that everyone in your travel party is connected to your “My Family and Friends List” in your My Disney Experience account.  You can create and manage an account for any minors. I hope that helps to answer your question. If you need any more help before your trip, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
