    Do i need a magic band to get fast passes?

    Hi Lucy,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. We on the panel love helping guests to plan magical vacations!

    I am so glad to hear that you are thinking about making Disney FastPass+ selections. With these, you will be able to experience some attractions each day with shorter wait times. Disney FastPass+ selections are a great way to maximize your time in the theme parks.

    You do not need a MagicBand to utilize Disney FastPass+ service. If you do not have a MagicBand, for your ticket media you will receive a credit card-sized plastic card. You can use that card for your Disney FastPass+ selections. My family and I traveled to Walt Disney World this summer. We had MagicBands, but our traveling companions did not - they had the cards. When we would go to an attraction that we all had FastPass+ selections for, my family would use our MagicBands to gain access, and our friends would simply pull out their ticket cards to do the same.

    You do need to be sure that you have Walt Disney World tickets, and that they are linked in your My Disney Experience account, in order to make your Disney FastPass+ selections.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Lucy! Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
