    Can I use the Magicband at the Disneyworld parks even if I do not stay at a Disneyworld resort ? I love the idea on the Magicband but we are staying off site.

    Hi Deanne, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us another question, my fellow Canadian!

    I’m happy to say that MagicBands are available to all Guests at Walt Disney World Resort, and not just those who have chosen to stay at a Disney Resort Hotel. You’ll be able to purchase one at any Theme Park ticket window or even buy cute character ones at several merchandise locations throughout the Theme Parks and Disney Springs. 

    If you choose to purchase a MagicBand, you can use it instead of an admission card to use any Theme Park Tickets and FastPass+ selections that may be linked to your My Disney Experience account. Please note, however, that you won’t be able to use it to charge purchases to your credit card as you won’t be staying at a Disney Resort Hotel.

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
