    I was given hopper passes purchased off-site from another company but am staying at a resort and have dining plans. Will I be able to link hopper passes to Fast Pass+ AND to Magic bands connected to my Disney account? Will this be an extra purchase?

    Hi Margaret! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It seems to me that you have a couple of questions! The questions are:  “If I have a valid Theme Park ticket can I link the ticket to My Disney Experience?” and “Once I link a Theme Park Ticket to My Disney Experience can I use my MagicBand and also book FastPass+?”

    You can link a valid Theme Park ticket to your My Disney Experience account, including those with the Park Hopper Option, Water Park Fun & More Option, special event tickets, and annual passes. Linking your tickets to your account makes accessing the Theme Parks much more convenient as you don’t have to worry about brining anything except your MagicBand!

    If you are staying at the Walt Disney World Resort, you will receive a MagicBand. MagicBands allow for a more carefree way of vacationing in my opinion. Just tap your MagicBand to unlock your Disney Resort hotel room, enter the Theme Parks (with your valid admission), check in at FastPass+ entrances, and so much more.

    Lastly, once you link your valid Theme Park admission tickets to your My Disney Experience account, you will be able to select your FastPass+ return times. With your Walt Disney World Resort vacation package, you will be able to select your FastPass+ times beginning 60 days before your trip arrival. If you were an offsite guest, you can begin your selections starting 30 days before your trip arrival.

    When staying at a Walt Disney World Resort all of these perks come at no extra charge to our guests! I hope that I have helped to answer your question! Please come back soon so we can help you plan a magical vacation!
