    We are not staying at a Disney Resort. Can we purchase a Magic Band? How much will it be and is there an extra charge for fast pass and how does that work?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sandy! We appreciate you stopping by and bringing us your question! 

    Sandy, I have great news for you! You can absolutely purchase MagicBands to use for your upcoming trip. Prices for MagicBands range anywhere from $12.99 and up depending on which one you chose. There’s a wide selection to choose from and they are all so fun! You can find your favorite characters and even some attraction inspired designs. I hope you find one that makes you smile! I love the super adorable polka dot Minnie Mouse design. It’s the best accessory to match some classic Minnie Ears

    Are you ready for some more magical news?! FastPass+ is a complimentary service included with your park admission. For guests not staying on Disney Property, you can begin booking your FP+ 30 days in advance. Simply create a My Disney Experience account and select create account. Once you have done so, select below the FP+ icon where it says Get Started. You will be able to book 3 FP+ in advance per day. Once you have redeemed those, jump on your MDE mobile app and select more to use, one at a time. You can continue adding FP+ throughout the day as they are available. This is the best way to see even more magical attractions in less time when you visit. 

    I hope you have a magical stay. Be sure to come back and visit us again soon. We’d love to help you plan your vacation to the most magical place on earth!
