    I am not staying on Disney property but would like to purchase a fast pass for the ease it offers. My question is does everyone in my party need his or her own magic band or can all tickets, fast passes, etc. be linked to one band?

    Hi, Michelle! Just like Tigger, the wonderful thing about FastPass+ is that FastPass+ is a wonderful thing! You can bounce from attraction to attraction, pounce right on a reserved seat in shows, and flounce around with your favorite characters, all with magical FastPass+ selections. Fun! Fun! Fun! But the most wonderful thing about the FastPass+ system is that it is free!

    That's right, all it takes to be able to access the FastPass+ system is a Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket. Once you link your theme park ticket to your My Disney Experience account, you will be able to reserve your choice of FastPass+ selections, depending on the number of days listed on your ticket. Since you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, then you will begin reserving your FastPass+ choices 30 days in advance of each day you plan to visit the theme parks.

    Before you begin making these selections, you will want to link each Guest in your party to your Family & Friends list, as well as their theme park tickets. While everyone can be linked under one My Disney Experience account, each Guest will need their own ticket or MagicBand to scan at the Mickey touchpoints for entrance into the parks and FastPass+ queues. While only Guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotels are given a complementary MagicBand for use during their stay, you can still make use of this technology. You may purchase some online or you can wait until you arrive for your vacation. There is a much wider selection in the parks, and the Cast Members will help you get them linked to the appropriate Guests in your My Disney Experience account.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions, Michelle. T-T-F-N! Ta-ta for now!
