    Do we need magic bands to use our fast passes?

    Hi, Todd!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    FastPass+ selections can be linked to either a Magic Band or an admission card. This card can be linked to your My Disney Experience account, as well. 

    For our first trip to Magic Kingdom, we did not have Magic Bands and only used the admission cards. They worked just like the Magic Band. It was our ticket into the parks and we used it to enter the attractions or events we had selected for FastPass+.

    While in the parks, you can purchase a Magic Band and have a Cast Member assist you or by calling 407-939-4357 and having someone assist you with linking that new Magic Band to your My Disney Experience account to replace the admission card that you were using. 

    So, Magic Bands are not a requirement, but they help to make your Disney vacation a little easier, by just tapping your wrist!

    Enjoy planning you Disney getaway!
