    We are not staying at a Disney resort but I bought magic bands to use for the parks and passes. It stated that when you check in you will get a 4 digit pin, how can I get that if I am not staying at a Disney resort?

    Hi Amanda, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited to hEar that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort next week! You will love wearing your MagicBands while visiting the theme parks. You can link your MagicBands and theme park admission tickets to your My Disney Experience account. This will allow you to use your MagicBands to enter the parks and redeem any FastPass+ experience selections that you have made.

    Only guests staying on property at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel have the option to choose a 4-digit pin. Resort Hotel guests can charge food and merchandise back to their hotel room account, using their MagicBand and chosen pin. These guests have already provided a credit or debit card for pre-authorization during their check-in process for these purchases

    However, if you purchase a Memory Maker, all of your photos taken by Disney’s PhotoPass Photographers can be uploaded to your account with the tap of your MagicBand. That would give you access to edit, crop, download and share all of your precious vacation memories. Have a magical time and enjoy your trip.

    See ya real soon,
