    If we are not staying on grounds, but buying a six day pass, do we still get the magic pass and chance to yes fp+? Thank you for your help. Staying off grounds for the first time, not by choice:(. Saving up for a big on grounds trip in several years.

    Hi Tracy!

    Walt Disney World guests that are staying off property can make their FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance.  Guests staying on property can make them 60 days in advance.  When your 30 day window opens up, you can start making your selections and let the planning mode begin.  (For attractions, that is)

    Since you will be staying off property on this trip, you will not receive MagicBands, but you do have the option to purchase them at any park, resort or Downtown Disney.  You do not have to have MagicBands to use the FastPass+ perk.  Instead you can use your plastic RFID ticket.  Having a MagicBand is convenient because you don't have to dig through your wallet or pocket every time you enter a FastPass+ queue.  

    If you have MagicBands from a previous vacation, you can link your new tickets to your old band and use those for your upcoming trip.

    Have a magical day!
