    If I'm not staying on site, can I still get a free magic band?

    Hello Annette and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It is no exaggeration when I say that MagicBands changed the way we experience the Walt Disney World Resort. These flexible wrist bands can be connected to your My Disney Experience account, and that is where the real magic begins! Your admission tickets along with your FastPass+ selections can be accessed with your band and managed via the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device. 

    When staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can also utilize your bands to enter your room and charge purchases and meals back to your room. If you choose to stay off-site, you can still purchase a MagicBand and link it to your account. However, you will only receive a free MagicBand if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.

    If you have more questions, come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel- we love to help!

    See ya real soon,
