    I am going to be in Orlando for 1 day.I will not be staying on property but would like to buy a 1 day pass.If I purchase this ahead of time can I link it to my MyDisney Experience.Can I get fast passes?Can I use a previous active magic band?

    Hey, Lauren! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for sending us another great question. You have come up with a plan that is practically perfect! I always advise my friends to purchase their Disney Theme Park Tickets well in advance of their visits for one huge reason - that ability to make FastPass+ selections. As soon as you receive your ticket, make sure it is linked to your My Disney Experience account. Then mark that magical day that you can begin making FastPass+ selections on your calendar. Since you are staying at an area hotel, you will make your selections at a single park up to 30 days in advance of your visit.

    I am so glad you kept the MagicBand from your prior visit because it is going to help make your day super easy. As long as you still have it listed as active in your account (check the My MagicBands and Cards section of your My Disney Experience account), then you will be able to use it during this upcoming visit to access your Disney Theme Park Ticket and FastPass+ selections.

    One thing to note is that you will not be able to use that MagicBand as a link to a payment source, such as you may have done while you were staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. However, I have a great option to share with you! Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering is such a time saver! You will be able to store a credit card on there when you place an order. You can even build your order earlier in the day. As soon as you arrive at the dining location, just hit the I'm Here button and the Cast Members will get your order ready. How easy is that?

    Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions!

Hi, I'm Brandy, a speech pathologist and busy driver of daughters to marching band and dance events. My Annual Pass is used often to check out new Disney must-dos and resort changes. I enjoy giving advice about itinerary and FastPass+ planning, Epcot's fantastic festivals, Memory Maker, and transportation at the Resort. The time I spend at Walt Disney World Resort is distinctive because it is the one place I can forget other responsibilities and focus on having the time of my life with my family!
