    We just received our Magic Bands. Is it possible to buy, schedule Fastpass+ and link our tickets to these Magic Bands to be used before our stay in the Disney Resort? We will stay in a relative house in the first days and after that in a Disney Resort.

    Hi, Cassia!  It sounds like you are well on your way to planning a magical vacation with your family.  I hope it's everything you are dreaming of.

    You can purchase your theme park passes and link them to your Magic Bands through My Disney Experience at any time.  It doesn't matter where you are staying, the park passes can be added to the account whenever you purchase them.  

    30 days prior to your vacation, you will be able to use the My Disney Experience tool to make your FastPass+ reservations.  They will also be linked to your Magic Bands, so when you use the band in the park, you will just head to your FastPass+ attraction locations and tap your band to the Mickey head to gain entry.

    Something I will add - if you are a Walt Disney World resort guest, you can make those FastPass+ reservations 60 days in advance.  Therefore, for the days you plan to stay at the resort, you can book FastPass+ times at that 60 day window.  The only times you'll have to wait for the 30 days window on are the ones you'll need while you are staying offsite with relatives.

    Have a fantastic visit!
