    How do I link my tickets to my magic bands if I’m not staying at a Disney resort?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shelley! We're happy you're back to bring us another great question!

    Shelley, all guests visiting the most magical destination on earth are able to enjoy the wearable technology of MagicBands during their visit, even if you're not staying on property. Simply log in to your My Disney Experience account, or create an account if you don't have one. Then follow the prompts to link all your reservations, tickets, and MagicBands. Once you have everything linked and ready, it's time to have fun planning!

    Once your account is ready, make sure you mark your calendar with your important planning dates. Your FastPass+, included with your park tickets, can be booked 30-days in advance. And your Advanced Dining Reservations can be made as early as 180-days ahead. Don't delay on booking your favorite restaurants and attractions as availability is limited.

    If you have any difficulty setting up your My Disney Experience account or linking your MagicBands, you can reach out to Disney's Internet Help Desk at 407-939-4357 where a helpful Cast Member will be able to access your account and help you get it up and running before you arrive.

    One last pro-tip! Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app to your smart device. This handy planning tool will be your best friend while you are enjoying the magic during your vacation. In it, you will be able to access all your vacation details, like your tickets, FastPass+, Dining reservations, and more, in an easy to use app that is with you on the go.

    I hope this information was helpful! See ya real soon,
