    Hello! I am planning our first family vacation to Walt Disney World in December for my husband, myself and our 3 children ( 8, 7 & 4). My question is IF we stay off site how will the fast pass+ work since we would not have the new Magic Bands?

    Hi Nikki! Disney is constantly updating MyMagic+, so there are likely to be more changes between now and December, so check back to the Disney Parks Blog and this website to see the latest news. Currently, guests not staying at a Disney Resort can book their FastPasses 30 days in advance, compared to the 60 days for Disney Resort guests. You will need to have tickets and have an account created on My Disney Experience to do this. In addition, guests staying off Disney property can now purchase Magic Bands at any theme park or Downtown Disney. Be sure to have your theme parks with you, as cast members will link them up immediately upon purchase.

    Write us back with any other questions as you plan your vacation Nikki!
