    Hi, We are going to WDW June & July. Me and my Wife have the MagicBands. My son and 3 grandkids do not have them. He is going to go to what parks he wants to with the Disney tickets he has. Will he be able to get fast pass for the rides he wants to

    Hi Richard, welcome back! I am glad to know you are going to the WDW with your family. Always a spectacular experience!
    MagicBands are optional. If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you will get one as part of your package, but if you are staying off-site, it is up to you to buy one or not.  If your son decides to buy one, he needs to link his park ticket to the new MagicBand.
    If he prefers not to get one, he can use his valid park ticket to book his FastPass+. It is basically the same procedure; he needs to create an account on My Disney Experience, on the website or app for mobile phones, and link to his ticket number. It is very easy, don’t worry!
    FastPass+ is a wonderful tool for booking in advance your favorite attractions and shows. It can be used by all Disney guests with valid park tickets and have no extra cost. Guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel have the benefit of booking it up to 60 days in advance of their vacation.
    If he prefers there are also FastPass+ kioskis at Disney theme parks, where he can access his FastPass+ plans to view, modify any selections or plan the itinerary.
    Hope this information helps your planning. Come back again if you have more questions.
    Have a pixie-dusted day!
