    Do I need a magic band to use fastpass?

    Hi Erica,

    You're just a couple of weeks away from your visit to the most magical place on earth. SO exciting! With all of the beautiful Christmas decorations, festive music, and fun special events, there's no better place to enjoy the Christmas season, and I just know that your heart is going to be FULL of Christmas joy!

    All Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel receive complimentary MagicBands, and if you're not staying on site, no worries! You may either purchase a MagicBand online or at many retail locations located all around the Walt Disney World Resort, or use the card that you'll receive when you purchase your theme park tickets. While MagicBands do make visiting the theme parks very convenient, you don't have to have one. You'll be able to enter the theme parks, check in for FastPass+ attractions and experiences, and more with either a MagicBand or a card

    Regardless of whether you choose to use a card or a MagicBand, I'd definitely encourage you to make three FastPass+ selections per day ahead of time! Did you know that once you've enjoyed those three experiences, you may use the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk to make additional FastPass+ selections, one at a time, pending availability, until the theme parks close? You'll feel like true Disney royalty when you skip the standby lines, and you'll be able to enjoy even more magic and fun!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Erica, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
