    Can I purchase Magic Bands if I'm not staying on property? Also, is there an alternative way to make purchases and enter parks?

    Hi Gina! Whether using MagicBands as a practical and convenient way to enter the parks, or simply adding to your collection, MagicBands are available to everyone! While I am more of a practical user of MagicBands, I absolutely spend time searching for the just-right MagicBand for my visits to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    MagicBands are available for purchase on shopDisney.com! You can also find a wide variety of bands on online auction sites. Exclusive MagicBands are also available to Guests who have booked a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! These can be purchased through your My Disney Experience account!

    While MagicBands must be paid for, there is an alternative to using MagicBands. Guests can use Disney MagicMobile on their mobile device! This service is available through your My Disney Experience app! Just tap on the menu on the app. When the menu appears, select the tile that states, “Disney MagicMobile.” You can then follow the prompts to set up your pass! It’s as convenient as having your mobile device at your side, contactless, and has nearly every feature of a MagicBand!
