    Do the new Magic Band version 2 work if you are staying off Disney property. I would like to purchase this ahead of time to link to my park pass for October 2021

    Welcome to planDisney, Tina! I'm so glad to be able to answer your question today. What did we ever do in a time before MagicBands? I just got back from a trip to The Most Magical Place On Earth last week and I'm still trying to tap my wrist to pay for food and unlock my front door!

    Tina, if you're staying somewhere off of Walt Disney World Resort property, you are still more than welcome to purchase a MagicBand and link your ticket and Disney Park Pass reservation to it. You'll be able to use it to enter the Theme Parks and collect Disney PhotoPass photos, including some of the special attraction photos at Haunted Mansion and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train that will only appear in your My Disney Experience account if you're wearing a MagicBand when you're riding. There is a huge selection available on shopDisney and new designs are being added all the time. MagicBands are also available for purchase at most merchandise locations once you arrive for your vacation, including some places outside of the Theme Parks like World of Disney and the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs! There are easy-to-follow instructions inside the packaging that will walk you through linking everything up to your account, but let us know if you need some help and we'll be happy to walk you through it. 

    Have a magical day, Tina!
