    are magic bands useful if not staying in a Disney resort? We want magic bands to fast pass attractions.

    Hello, Christy!

    I like your thinking! Using MagicBands during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is definitely the way to go. It is so convenient to touch your MagicBand to the Mickey touch points to access your theme park tickets, FastPass+ experiences and "collect" your Disney's PhotoPass Service photos. I love that everything is associated to my MagicBand, so I don't have to worry about which pocket has my theme park ticket or PhotoPass card! Just be sure to link your theme park tickets via your My Disney Experience account so you can begin making your FastPass+ selections 30 days before your visit. 

    I hope you find MagicBands as convenient as I do! Please visit us again with any other questions you may have! 

    Have a magical day!
