    Can I obtain magic bands if we are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort?

    Hey there, hi there, Jessica!

    Of course you can get MagicBands! You don't have to be staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel in order to obtain MagicBands. 

    MagicBands can be super helpful at Walt Disney World. You can use them when entering the parks, when using Disney Genie+ Service or for Individual Lightning Lane attractions, and even when you use a Photopass photographer. You'll find MagicBands available at many of the shops throughout Walt Disney World, at the theme parks, in Disney Springs, and in the resort gift shops. If you'd like to have them in advance of your trip, you can purchase them from the shopDisney website. Since your trip is coming up super quickly, if you plan to order your bands online, you may want to do it in the next day or two.

    Once you have your MagicBands, you'll want to link them to your My Disney Experience account. This will allow you to assign your theme park passes to each member of your party so they can scan their bands as they enter the parks. 

    I hope you have an awesome time on your trip, Jessica! It'll be here before you know it.
