    How does the magic band work. Can I use it without staying at a Disney resort?

     Howdy Dylan!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Thank you for sharing your questions with us!

    The MagicBand is a fantastic device that adds so much to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, the MagicBand will help you in so many ways to lighten your load and make your vacation more relaxing.  With the MagicBand, you can enter your room, pay for things throughout the parks, capture all of your photos with Disney PhotoPass, and use it for all of your park entries!  If you are staying at a resort hotel that is not on the Walt Disney World property, you will enjoy using your MagicBand for all of your park entries and capturing your photos with the Disney PhotoPass Photographers.  There are so many amazing MagicBand to choose from, and I know you will find one that is perfect for you!  I also enjoy wearing mine as a fun Disney accessory!  

    There is a considerable variety of MagicBand options!  The easiest way to scroll through all the current options is through a link in your My Disney Experience.  In your My Disney Experience App or Account, you will find an option titled “Shop Merchandise” and search MagicBands.  This site will bring you to all the current MagicBands offered right now.  

    With the Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival going on, I love the Ratatouille MagicBand 2!  I am a Remy fan, and right now, you can find Remy throughout every country in World Showcase!  The Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is an event you will not want to miss!

    To stay informed of all the things happening at the Walt Disney World Resort now and on the horizon, check out the Disney Parks Blog!  The Disney Parks Blog always keeps me up-to-date on everything and even new MagicBands as they are released!

    Thank you so much for bringing your questions to planDisney, and we look forward to helping you again, Dylan!

    See Ya Real Soon,
