    Hi, I've just read that a MagicBand is required to receive certain attraction photos and other digital content. As we are not staying at a Disney hotel we only have Disney tickets, will I still get everything I would get with a magic band?

    Hi Paula!

    I'm so glad you popped in to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. We're here to help!

    Your park ticket will work just the same as a MagicBand for your park entrance and FastPass+ entrance. You will simply use your ticket at the touch point to enter the park or your FastPass+ attraction. If you are planning to purchase Memory Maker, make sure you link it to your My Disney Experience account. Then you can use your park ticket, your Memory Maker card, or a Disney PhotoPass card whenever you have your photo taken by the Disney photographers. And don't forget to scan one of these cards when you see your attraction photo at the end of a ride. Anyone linked to your My Disney Experience account can collect their photos with their cards too. That way, you'll have every magical moment of your vacation right there in your Memory Maker account!

    I hope this helps, and I hope you have an amazing upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Make lots of memories!
