    Do you have to purchase the Magic Bands in order to use Fast Pass?

    Greetings, Jay and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for this excellent question!

    Disney’s FastPass+ service is a convenient method of skipping the standby line for select shows, attractions and Disney Character Greets and is included with your Theme Park admission. You do not have to purchase a MagicBand to utilize our FastPass+ service, Jay, you may use your Theme Park Ticket Admission Card to check into your selected FastPass+ experiences.

    Please associate your Disney Theme Park Tickets to your Disney account via Linking Reservations and Purchases which will unlock your FastPass+ Planning 30 days before your scheduled visit, or, if you are a Disney Resort hotel Guest you may begin FastPass+ selections 60 days before your stay as one of many Resort hotel Guest benefits.

    Book your FastPass+ entertainment and attractions for each day that you have a valid Theme Park Ticket associated to your Disney account. Once you redeem your first 3 selections, you can make other selections, one at a time, for that same park, or at another park that same day via My Disney Experience, at a Disney Resort hotel Lobby Concierge, or at a FastPass+ Kiosk.

    We hope this information is helpful towards your planning, Jay and we would be honored to assist you again soon!

    Best Disney Wishes!
