    I am planning to just buy a 1 day park ticket while I am visiting the beach in June. If I buy ahead of time will I get a magic band so I can book my FP 30 days in advance? Or do you only get magic bands when you buy the whole package?

    Hi Amanda!

    Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question today!

    are included for Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel or who are Annual Passholders.  While they aren't included when you buy only a theme park ticket, you do still have the option to purchase one separately, which would mean you could link it to your My Disney Experience account and have your park tickets and FastPass+ selections all loaded and ready to go for your day in the parks.  MagicBands can be purchased on the Disney Store online and at many of the shops in the parks and hotels at Walt Disney World.

    Whether or not you have a MagicBand, you'll still be able to make your FastPass+ picks 30 days in advance.  Just link your theme park ticket to your My Disney Experience account and you'll be all set on that 30-day mark.

    I hope that helps with your planning, Amanda, and have a magical visit to Walt Disney World!
