    Do you have to stay on property to get a MagicBand? We are staying at our Travel Share condo to save a bit of $$ but would like to get MagicBands for everyone.

    Hey Melissa-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. MagicBands are so cool and make a fantastic wearable souvenir. They also allow you to move through the theme parks effortlessly as you touch your way into the park and through your FastPass+ entitlement attractions. Every time we visit Walt Disney World Resort we get a new MagicBand commemorating that special trip.

    Absolutely you may purchase a MagicBand if you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. You may purchase them from many places. Online, at the Downtown Disney Marketplace, merchandise locations at any theme park or resort hotel and at locations at the Orlando airport.

    In order to use it, you will need to link your new MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account. The process is quick. If you have any issues you may contact a Cast Member to help you. MagicBands have a range of designs from solid colors to ones graphically designed with Disney characters. There is a style for everyone.

    Have an amazing trip and enjoy making many Magical Memories!
