    If you purchase your tickets through Disney but stay off site, do you still get magic bands?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Angela! Thanks for bringing us your question about MagicBands!

    Complimentary solid color MagicBands are a benefit of being a Disney Resort hotel guest. Along with Extra Magic Hours, additional time, morning or night, at a theme park each day.

    But Angela, don’t worry, MagicBands are available for purchase on the Shop Disney Parks web page. You may even find a band with your favorite character on it!

    When you do receive your shiny new band, make sure to link it to your My Disney Experience account following the step by step instructions on the “link my reservations” web page.

    Guests staying off-site will still be able to reserve their place in line for their favorite attractions by using the FastPass+ service. This service is included with your ticket price and gives you 30 days before your scheduled visit to make those selections. This will end up saving you lots of time because you won't be waiting in long lines!

    I hope you and your family have a great visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Don’t hesitate to stop by again with any other planning questions!
