    Hi Can you tell me if we need to stay at a Disney resort to get the magic bands? The kids would love one each but I read you had to be staying a Disney hotel and we aren't. We are travelling from Australia for our 2nd extended family trip.

    Hi Amanda,

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel. You don’t have to be a guest at one of the Disney’s resorts to use MagicBands. You can purchase them at Disney Springs or at the stores located at every theme park. After opening them, link the numbers with the information on your account at My Disney Experience app. It’s easy and fun to use.

    Have a magical day!
