    We are not staying on the property and would like to get a magic band. Can we get one? If so how can we get one so that we can have the fast pass experience. We would like to get this set up before we get into the park

    Hi Casey!  I see you are planning on visiting Walt Disney World during the Christmas holidays.  You are really going to enjoy seeing all the parks dressed in their holiday finest.   It is a sight you will remember for years to come.  I hope you have a magical time.

    Casey, since you are staying at an off-site hotel, you will be able to make Disney FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance of your arrival.   In order to do this you will need to have a My Disney Experience account set-up, and have an active theme park ticket linked for each member in your traveling party.  I suggest you pre-purchase your tickets in advance online. This will allow you to link tickets to your My Disney Experience account before your FastPass+ selection window opens.   Once you arrive at Walt Disney World, you can utilize your FastPass+ selections with either the radio-frequency plastic park tickets you will be given, or your family can purchase MagicBands at Walt Disney World.   MagicBands are currently for sale in all four theme parks and the Downtown Disney entertainment area.   The cost at this time is $12.95 plus tax per MagicBand, and you will have your choice of seven fun colors.   When you purchase your MagicBands a Cast Member will make sure they are correctly linked to the current ticket media you are holding.   

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  If I can answer  any further questions you may have, please let me know.  I love to help guests plan unforgettable Disney Parks vacations.
