    We are not staying at a Disney world resort. How do we access our fast pass activities? I see that magic bands are sent if you stay at a resort.

    Hello Doreen! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When staying off property during a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, Guests are still able to make FastPass+ Selections up to 30 days in advance of their visit.

    One of the benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel is the ability to book up to 60 days in advance and to have FastPass+ Selections linked to the provided MagicBands.  Whether or not you stay on property, FastPass+ Selections may be arranged through My Disney Experience online or through the App on any mobile device.

    Once you have setup your My Disney Experience account and link your tickets to the individual members of your party, you will be able to book FastPass+ selections starting at the 30-day window mark before your trip.  When the window opens, you can select the days and attractions or entertainment offerings for up to 3 activities for the number of tickets linked to your account.

    If you have 4-day Theme Park Tickets, you will be able to select FastPass+ Selections for 4 days within 30 days of a visit.

    Guests staying off property are able to purchase MagicBands separately through the Disney Store online or at various locations across Walt Disney World Resort and link them to Family and Friends through My Disney Experience.

    Happy Planning!
