    Hello, My family and I are planning to visit Disney World in Dec. 2017. We are staying at our timeshare but I saw the MagicBands and my kids would love them. I am wondering if I can still buy them even though we will not be staying at a Disney Hotel?

    Hi Samantha!

    Absolutely! MagicBands are a fun and easy way to enter the parks, use your FastPass+ selections and save your Disney PhotoPass memories. 

    Staying off-site you are still able to purchase MagicBands either ahead of time online at DisneyStore.com or in one of the parks once you arrive. It will offer the same benefits other than you will not be able to use it for charging privileges. You'll then just need to link them to your My Disney Experience profiles and hit the parks.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns, Samantha. 

    Magical Wishes,
