    We will be staying at Best Western Lake Buenu Vista inside Disney in November. Do we need to buy Magic Bands for fast passes?

    Hello Carolyn and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 
    I'm thrilled to hear you are planning a magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort this coming November, I can just imagine how excited you must be! 
    You may have done this already, but one of the 1st things I would recommend you do to help schedule and plan the magic of your upcoming Disney trip is to create a My Disney Experience account and perhaps to download the My Disney Experience Mobile app.  
    I'm happy to share that you should be able to make those all important FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance of arrival via My Disney Experience after a valid Disney Theme Park Ticket has been successfully linked to your account, plus that MagicBands & Admission Cards do help unlock the magic of a Disney trip, but Guests don't actually need a MagicBand as just an Admission Card will suffice! 
    If I can help sprinkle any extra pixie dust onto your plans to visit Walt Disney World Resort this November please do pop back to ask me another question. 
    Have a great Disney day. 
    ~ Jane
