    We purchased our tickets online, and are staying off property. How do we receive our magic cards so we can access our Fastpass reservations?

    Welcome Home, Michelle!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your excellent question about MagicBands and FastPass+ selections! I hope you will continue to visit us while planning your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Michelle, if you have already purchased your Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets online, you can begin making FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance of your vacation, at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Time.

    If you do not have a MagicBand because you are staying off-property or decide not to purchase one, you can use your admission card to access your FastPass+ selections and enter the FastPass+ queue of your choice.

    When you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, you will need to show your confirmation e-mail which contains a single bar code as well as the payment method used to purchase your ticket(s). When your bar code is scanned, you will receive your admission card(s).

    If you prefer the convenience of using a MagicBand, you can purchase one in advance of your vacation or when you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort. If you do have a MagicBand, you do not need to take the steps above. You can simply head to the park entrance and touch your MagicBand to one of the touch points to enter the theme park and FastPass+ queues.

    You can then easily link your MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account. If you have any issues linking your MagicBand, you can ask a Cast Member for help. They love helping make Walt Disney World Resort vacations “practically perfect!”

    Michelle, If you have any additional questions you are always welcome to return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We are all EARS!
