    We are from Panama city, Panama. We are going to visit WDW in Nov. This will be 2nd and 1st time for some of our party. We have never used fastpass and magic bands. We do not know how to use them. Could you please give us some guides. Thanks!

    Hey there, Lily! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I’m thrilled to learn you are gearing up to visit during one of the most magical times in the year, the Holiday season! The entire resort is decked out in its holly jolly best and with all the special events that take place during this season, it’s a very merry time to be there!

    Lily, you are going to be blown away with the magic that your MagicBand will unlock. If you are staying right where the magic happens at one of the many amazing Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, your MagicBand, included with your stay, will be your key to the Kingdom, unlocking your room door, park entrance, and even hold your FastPass+ once you have pre-booked those for your theme park days.

    To get started, open a My Disney Experience account then follow the prompts to link all your resort information, tickets, and reservations you’ve already made. If you haven’t made any reservations yet, Hakuna Matata! You’ll love being able to make all your plans in this easy to use planning tool.

    Once you have your theme park tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account, visit the FastPass+ tab. For each guest with a theme park ticket, you will be able to pre-book three FP+ for available attractions per park, per day. But the fun doesn’t stop there! Once you redeem your third pre-booked FP+, you can log into your My Disney Experience mobile app right on your smart device and select more so you can save more time and enjoy even more of the magic.

    I hope this helps give you a jump start into your planning fun! Be sure to come back and see us again for any additional planning tips and advice for your upcoming stay at the place where the magic is endless.

    See you real soon,
