    If we are to stay off grounds can we still use the my disney experience app and do we get magic bands for our park tickets

    Hi Erin!

    Anyone visiting Walt Disney World can utilize Walt Disney World website and My Disney Experience, however, only Guests staying on property at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel will receive complimentary MagicBands.  

    As an off property Guest, you can use My Disney Experience to manage dining reservations as well as make and modify FastPass+ selections.  You can start making your FastPass+ selections 30 days prior to your arrival.

    If you would like to use MagicBands, you can purchase them at any Walt Disney World park or Resort hotel merchandise location or from the Disney Store online prior to your vacation.  The advantage of having them even while staying off property is that it makes going through the Fast Pass+ queue's more convenient than having to find your tickets each time.

    You can also use the My Disney Experience mobile app to check attraction wait times, show times, make dining reservations and manage your FastPass+ selections.

    Have a magical day!
