    Can I purchase Magic Bands to be used at the parks if I am not staying on the property?

    Hello Kelly, and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so glad to hear that you are planning to visit the Walt Disney World Resort soon. I absolutely love collecting MagicBands. They are a stylish piece of technology that makes any visit to a Disney Theme Park so much easier. MagicBands will allow you to access your admission tickets and FastPass+ selections and other important information stored within your My Disney Experience account.

    You can purchase and use a MagicBand in the parks even if you are not a Disney Resort Hotel guest. You will still be able to link pictures taken by Disney’s PhotoPass Photographers to a Memory Maker account. You can purchase MagicBands online or from the Shop Disney Parks Mobile app. There are dozens of designs to choose from and linking a MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account can be done very easily. However, if you are like me, and love to collect exclusive Disney Parks merchandise, you can always purchase your MagicBand when you arrive. There are Limited Edition and Special Event MagicBands for sale at select shops in Disney Theme Parks and at Disney Springs. A Cast Member would be glad to help you link your MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account. I hope that helps to answer your question. If you need any more help planning your magical trip, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
