    I just reserved a vacation for next week and because I won’t be getting magic bands since it’s so last minute, how will I redeem my fast passes in the parks? Everything is linked, I just don’t have a barcode or anything for the fast passes.. thank you!

    Hi Sara,
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for stopping by with your question.

    You didn't indicate where you will be staying for this upcoming trip. If you're planning on staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will receive a complimentary MagicBand at the front desk upon arrival (you can check in My Disney Experience to see if you have enough time remaining to personalize that band; do it now if you can).  If you don't personalize one in time, they will give you a lovely grey one that matches everything.  If you have MagicBands from a previous visit, bring them with you! As long as they are linked to your My Disney Experience account, they will work on any visit, provided that the battery inside the device is still active.

    If you are not staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can take your barcode for your park tickets (or your My Disney Experience account with your ticket information on your smartphone) to any ticket window or Guest Services, where you will receive an Admission Card.

    Both MagicBands and Admission Cards work the same way-you use them at touchpoints to enter both the parks (as your park ticket) and for admission to the FastPass+ line for attractions at the appointed time.

    Sara, have a magical visit! Please come by and visit us again with any questions.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
