    We are planning our Disney Vacation for July of this year. We have a large family group and have rented a house in a resort off Disney property. Can we get Magic Bands even though we are not staying on Disney?

    Hi Kimberley,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. One of my favorite Walt Disney World memories is from a trip with my extended family. I hope you have an incredible time creating memories with your family. 

    The MyMagic+ system is still testing and subject to change at any moment. At this time, Magic Bands are only available for guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. I would keep an eye for any changes on the webpages for Magic Bands and My Disney Experience

    Please let me know if you have any other vacation planning questions.
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
