    can we use magic bands if we are not staying at a Disney Resort?

    Hi, Tremayne! MagicBands have made a day in the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks so much easier for me – no more keeping up with PhotoPass cards, FastPass tickets or even our theme park tickets! Everything I need for a magical day is stored online right in My Disney Experience, which we have access to via our linked MagicBands. As a Guest staying off-site, you can also utilize this technology.

    Some off-site Guests do choose to pre-purchase MagicBands online at so that they can link it to their My Disney Experience account from home. You can also use an amazing new app that gives you the ability to Shop Disney Parks from home via your smartphone. MagicBands can also be purchased at any Walt Disney World Resort hotel or theme park, at which time Guest Relations can assist you in linking your tickets and MagicBands to your My Disney Experience account. The pricing of MagicBands does vary, but most I have seen recently range from $12.95 - $24.95.

    I hope you have a magical day, Tremayne. Please stop by again if you think of any other questions as you continue to plan your trip.

Hi, I'm Brandy, a speech pathologist and busy driver of daughters to marching band and dance events. My Annual Pass is used often to check out new Disney must-dos and resort changes. I enjoy giving advice about itinerary and FastPass+ planning, Epcot's fantastic festivals, Memory Maker, and transportation at the Resort. The time I spend at Walt Disney World Resort is distinctive because it is the one place I can forget other responsibilities and focus on having the time of my life with my family!
