    If you purchase military tickets can you still utilize the magic bands? If so to what extent?

    Hi Desiree,
    Thanks for coming by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so pleased to tell you that yes, your military tickets can be linked to your My Disney Experience account and used with your Magic Band. These tickets are just like any other tickets sold at the Walt Disney World Resort so not only will you be able to enter the theme parks using your Magic Band, they can be used to make FastPass+ selections when linked in My Disney Experience. You will also be able to use your Magic Band at the FastPass+ touchpoints when entering an attraction. If you receive an Exchange Pass from your local ITT/MWR ticket location, enter the code on the back of your pass into My Disney Experience. If you are staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can make your FastPass+ selections for your entire vacation 60 days in advance of your arrival. If you are staying in an off-property resort (including Shades of Green), you can make your FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance.

    If you wait until your arrival to purchase your military tickets, either at a ticket window or at Shades of Green, you will not be able to make any FastPass+ selections until those tickets have been linked in My Disney Experience. If your local base doesn't offer tickets for the Walt Disney World Resort, the Military Disney Tips website ( - copy and paste into your browser) has a list of bases that will ship Exchange Passes and/or tickets to your home address.

    Desiree, I hope I was able to answer all of your questions. Please come back and see us if you need additional assistance in planning your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
