    I read somewhere that FastPass+ is currently disabled. If this is true, would a MagicBand be of much use if I am staying offsite?

    Hello Jeri! 

    A very warm welcome to planDisney! 

    As you are aware, FastPass+ reservations are currently suspended until further notice. But that does not mean you won’t benefit from bringing your MagicBand with you! MagicBands make getting around the Walt Disney World Resort super convenient! They can be attached to your My Disney Experience account to link tickets and Disney PhotoPass pictures. When linked appropriately, you simply scan your MagicBand when entering the theme parks and you can even get ride photos and videos from attractions that use MagicBand technology to auto-magically link media to your account. If you prefer, you can just use your actual Walt Disney World theme park tickets (cards) for entering the theme parks and capturing PhotoPass photos from photographers. MagicBands are very helpful, but they are not required! 

    While FastPass+ reservations are currently unavailable, you are now required to make an advanced theme park reservation using the new Disney Park Pass system. This reservation is required in addition to your valid admission ticket. You can make a reservation for one theme park each day of your trip. Reservations are limited and are available through January 2022. I recommend making a reservation soon as you’ve purchased tickets and linked them to your My Disney Experience account. 

    Please head back to planDisney with more vacation planning questions! We’re all EARS!
