    We are planning on staying outside the resort, can we still get the magic band, fast pass and memory maker?

    Hi Diana,

    Absolutely! As a guest staying at a hotel outside the Walt Disney World Resort, you can purchase MagicBands online, via the Shop Disney Parks app or upon arrival on Disney property. Buy Theme Park Tickets and link them to your My Disney Experience account. That way, you will be able to reserve 3 FastPass+ picks for select attractions, entertainment and Character Greetings, up to 30 days in advance of each day of your theme park visit. You may also purchase the Disney Memory Maker in advance, and link it to your My Disney Experience account too. It really is such a great value!

    Disney Mom Tip: Download the My Disney Experience mobile app on your mobile device. You’ll have the added flexibility to change your FastPass+ selections on your mobile phone or at FastPass+ Kiosks, subject to availability. If your tickets include the Park Hopper Option, once you redeem your first set of FastPass+ selections (or the last arrival window has already passed), you can make additional FastPass+ selections at any of the easy-to-find kiosks in the next park you visit that same day. Repeat this process, adding one FastPass+ selection at a time, up to park closing.
