    How does the magic band work? Can you get it if you are only purchasing park tickets? I was thinking of using airmiles for park tickets.

    Hi Julie,

    We're so happy that you decided to stop by the Moms Panel to ask your question. We love to help guests like you plan their upcoming magical vacations.

    MyMagic+ and MagicBands are a great new addition to the Walt Disney World experience. As of this past March, all guests are able to use both amenities when visiting Walt Disney World resorts and theme parks. While Walt Disney World Resort guests and annual passholders receive complimentary MagicBands, day guests are able to purchase their MagicBands at Walt Disney World Resort merchandise locations and within Downtown Disney.

    If you plan on purchasing your tickets from a 3rd party, you will be able to add them to your My Disney Experience account. You tickets should have individual confirmation numbers that you will add to the Tickets and Passes section of your account. Once they are added to the account, and you are within the 30 day window of your visit, you will be able to make your FastPass+ selections

    I hope this answered your question, Julie. If you have any other questions about your upcoming trip, please feel free to ask us at any time. We're always here to help.

    Have a fantastical Disney day!
