    How do I get magic bands if I am not staying on the Disney property please?

    Hi Pamela! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your vacation is right around the corner and I hope you are ready for a magical visit! There are a lot of fun events happening right now that will add to the wonderful memories you will create.

    I have good news! Guests that are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel can still purchase MagicBands for their vacation. Having a MagicBand makes getting around the Walt Disney World Resort extremely easy since you use it in place of your ticket to enter the theme parks and the FastPass+ lines, as well as to link PhotoPass photos to your My Disney Experience account. I love how convenient MagicBands are!

    To purchase MagicBands prior to your visit, you can check out shopDisney. When I just did a quick search for MagicBands on their site, 51 options came up! I personally love the new turquoise one and think that my order will be placed for that one soon! Since your trip is rapidly approaching, make sure to pay attention to estimated shipping dates. You don't want it to arrive after your trip! If you would like, you can also purchase MagicBands at many locations in the theme parks and Disney Springs. This way, you will have access to it immediately and can see all of the colors and designs in person.

    I hope this helps, Pamela! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
