    We have purchased are tickets at AAA. I know they can be linked to the magic bands but is it necessary to have them? I know the fast pass+ will work with the magic band...will it work with the card? Can only some members in our party have magic bands?

    Hi Barbara!

    One of the things I love about a trip to Walt Disney World Resort is that there are so many tools available that help make planning your trip so easy. My Disney Experience is definitely one of the tools that will make your vacation more magical!

    You will want to link your admission tickets to your My Disney Experience account. This will allow you to make FastPass+ reservations and also manage how you access both your tickets and your FastPass+ reservation during your trip. The admissions cards and MagicBands that are linked to your My Disney Experience account will have access to your entitlements, which include theme park tickets and FastPass+ reservations. You can manage the cards and MagicBands linked to each member of your Friends & Family List right in My Disney Experience. Since you can manage each individual's cards and MagicBands, your group can use a mix of MagicBands and admissions cards as you choose.

    MagicBands definitely aren't necessary and you will be able to enjoy an amazing theme park day with FastPass+ reservations without them. However, it is so nice when everyone in my family has access to their theme park tickets and FastPass+ reservations with just a touch of their MagicBand. I love that I don't have to retrieve everyone's cards throughout the day for each FastPass+ reservation!

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app as it's my favorite way to manage our vacation plans during our trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
